About dinner

"Respect your dinner; idolize it, enjoy it properly. You will be by many hours in the week, many weeks in the year, and many years in your life happier if you do."

- William Makepeace Thackeray, "Memorials of Gormandising" (Quoted in October REAL SIMPLE)

I used to very much dislike making dinner.  Then I realized I would be doing it all of my life so I might as well enjoy it.  After that, I gathered recipes, asked good cooks questions, and made a shopping list.  Voila!  Making and eating dinner is now enjoyable (most nights).  I can't help but agree with this quote.

Tilapia with sour cream sauce, rice,  and celery ... It may not always be pretty but it did taste good

What an achievement! I know I've benefited from your collection of recipes. Here's to getting up and doing something about the chores we don't prefer. Any tips you have for washing dishes or folding laundry? Oh and vacuuming? ...and cleaning the bathroom? I'd take 'em. :)

I feel inspiration coming on!! Thanks Ash! (I'm not exactly sure when it will arrive,but I know Vance is hoping for it!) Jo, I can only say, I like doing dishes because it's like playing in water-and no one ever complains that I do the dishes (or laundry or vacuum... heather's advice on the bathroom is that it's the smallest room in the house, so how hard could it be?
