I have decided to give myself a somewhat unoriginal challenge, by making all the meals in Rachel Ray's 30-Minute Meals 2 cookbook. I received this for Christmas and have made a few things, and to spice things up, I'm going to start at page 1 and work my way through, recording my journey for anyone who happens to stumble on this. (I'm brand new to blogging, so bear with me here.)
A couple of tests for ol' Rachel... can these meals REALLY be made in 30 minutes, and are all the ingredients REALLY easily found. Oh, and I'm not going to do one meal after another in order, but meal 1 of each section, then meal 2, etc. I've already done this for 2 of the meals and I'll make that report in a future post, but the bottom line, was each one of those actually took a little over an hour.
My other personal challenge is my commitment to Weight Watchers, and my goal to lose about 20 pounds (also unoriginal, but necessary). This will eliminate making the desserts in Rachel's menus, but I'll mention that in my reports.
I'm off to cook...
