Long time no post!

Hello out there!! I've been away a long long time!  So much going on all the time, and I just never seem to sit down and blog anymore.  And it's a problem because this is where I kept track of all the yummy things I was cooking.  When I don't keep track of yummy new ideas, I forget about them, and then go back to the same 10 dishes all the time.  This must stop! LOL  So yet again I'm gonna try to give this blog another go..  I'm pretty sure there aren't any readers other than the few recipes that ended up on Pinterest, but that is okay, because this has always been more about a place for me to keep track of my ideas.. if others show up along the way and like what I'm cooking and writing about, well the more the merrier! If there is someone out there in the blogosphere reading this, I hope you'll stop in and say "Hi" sometime, especially if you try and like any of the recipes I post. :)

I've got some good ideas planned for this week.. Tonight I'm going to make a Beef Stroganoff over noodles.  I'm using one of these new Kraft Recipe Makers box kit things that comes with a simmering sauce and a finishing sauce.. The kit is actually for a New England Pot Roast, but I don't really feel like pot roast this week, and stew meat was on sale.. and since the side of the box said another recipe idea for the kit was a beef stroganoff, I thought "what the heck, lets give this a try."  I'm excited to try it out.. I really like the sweet and sour chicken kit they make, and I'm looking forward to seeing what this one tastes like.

  Tomorrow night I'm thinking about a Drunken Pork Tenderloin with Red Wine Gravy over rice.  I found the recipe on Pinterest and it looks pretty dang easy and good.  After cooking the pork tenderloins in red wine, you combine the red wine drippings with a packet of brown gravy mix to make a red wine gravy.  That just sounds yummy to me, so I'm giving it a go. Still trying to think of one more idea before I go to the grocery store and trying to get inspired on Pinterest, but all I'm really finding is stuff I'd like to make for Easter. haha 

That's all for now, hopefully I'll remember to report back this evening with pictures of my Beef Stroganoff!
