Trying to figure out what to make for dinner every night is tiring. I don’t want to think of new things to make, yet I don’t want to make the same things so much my family doesn’t want to eat them anymore. I have considered many different options. However I find yet again I’m stuck not knowing what to make or what to put on my grocery list.
This is why I was quite excited to see the topic for this month’s Gabby Mom review. Lorrie Flem, the mother of eight, has written a cooking resource called "What's for Dinner Mom?". This is a nearly 200 page spiral bound cook book and SO much more.
I figure a woman who has figured it out for a family twice the size of mine has to have some insights I can benefit from. I was right. Lorrie shares her successes and failures with simplifying the cooking for her family. This includes an overview of several different methods, what she liked about them, what didn’t work so well. There are tips for freezing your meals. Lorrie provides insight into setting up your kitchen to work for you. Beyond the tips and advice there are recipes. Recipes tried not only by Lorrie’s family, but other families, too. You’ll also find: (From EE’s description)
