If I'm doing this right, we're supposed to eat three meals a day at home and I'm supposed to cook everything from scratch. At least that's the message I keep hearing from people who I doubt live up to this gold standard themselves. The biggest problem is that I'm out of creative ideas, and we're all getting sick of the same old thing.
I've found some inspiration!
The Best of Amish Friends Cookbook by Wanda E. Brunstetter is full of things I might actually cook, with ingredients that I might actually have in my kitchen or be able to pick up on a quick run to the grocery store. First on my list of things I want to try are the Buckwheat Pancakes. Next are the Soda Crackers and Breakfast Fried Zucchini. The recipes don't tell you how many servings they make, but I'm so used to having to scale things up for my family of six that I rarely make anything using the amounts as written.
Scattered through the book are descriptions of different Amish communities. I was really more interested in the breakfast and dinner ideas, and there are plenty of those.
Got any other cookbook recommendations for me? Or just lunch and dinner ideas? I'd love to hear them!
