Everyday when I wake up I think, “what are we going to eat for supper tonight?” It is part me loving food but also a big part of the day, deciding and then finding and buying the ingredients. You can rarely just pick a recipe and head out with your list. It’s more like you head out with a couple ideas and a couple lists. This gets easier everyday, as I am starting to know what stores have what and what day they have it.
Today I was feeling a bit blah! I have a cold and I just had no good ideas for supper. I strolled the isles of each shop, but I still had no ideas. I called Keith to see if he had any good ones. Something simple he said. Hmmmm, what would that be. I settled on steaks and salad. And then it came to me. Salad with ranch dressing! But wait, that does not exist here, when in doubt, google it! I found lots of recipes but many of them called for buttermilk and/or sour cream. I kept searching. Sure enough, I found one, on a blog. Another woman, in another country with limited ingredients. I scanned the list, check, check, check! So tonight we will have steak, with salad and ranch dressing.
