The blossoming domestic goddess in me cried today. My husband of four months confessed that he was growing tired of my two "signature" dishes (lasagna and pasta with mozzarella, basil & tomatoes). In his defense, it's true. I pretty much make a lasagna every Sunday night so that the leftovers will feed us the rest of the week. The pasta is made whenever the lasagna runs out (usually by Thursday's dinner). Both are quick and delicious but...I guess when you have it three months in a row- even the most liberal eater will become restless.
This is my dilemma: our schedules are crazy. Meetings, school, classes, tutorials, and the unexpected have us coming home at weird hours. That's why the two dishes work out so well, easy to heat and eat. Fran is always more than happy to cook but, unfortunately, I am one of the world's biggest control freaks which translates to: picky eater. Not to mention, if it were up to him we would eat salads and cooked ground turkey every night for the sake of growing abs- a worthy goal, just not a palatable one.
Cooks of the cyber world, help please! Any suggestions? Rachel Ray is too fatty and Martha Stewart is too ambitious. Any in betweens you could recommend would be wonderful.
