What to make for dinner?
Can’t decide what to make for dinner?
This is a common problem that I hear from housewives, working men and women and bachelors:
“What am I going to make for dinner??!!”
I know I have a house full of groceries and all the cookware you would ever need, but I still ask myself that question daily. After a long day at work, I usually walk to my refrigerator, open it up, and look at all these groceries that I just bought from the grocery store. I have a handful of recipes that I can make off the top of my head, but there is one problem with that…I’m tired of eating the same five things every week. There are only so many tacos and spaghetti I can eat in a month. I close the refrigerator and walk to my pantry. Same thing, tons of groceries, but the same five recipes run through my head.
Now, this problem is tough enough, but to complicate matters, I need easy to make recipes AND they have to be delicious. Am I setting the bar too high? Possibly, but, keep in mind that I’ve got a high-speed connection to the internet and we all know the internet has hundreds of thousand of recipes. What are the chances I can find a recipe in an hour? You would think, pretty good, but as you’ll find out, I have no chance and I don’t even know it. So, I fire up my computer and dive into the internet in search of a simple, delicious recipe. I find twenty or thirty recipes that sound delicious, from their title, but it turns out that I have to buy all these ingredients that I have never heard of before AND it’ll take over an hour to make. An hour goes by and it is now 7:30 pm and I still have not eaten. I can either go back to the grocery store and spend another hour in search of ingredients I have never heard of or I can make a run to the local fast food chain. The interesting thing is that I am running out of time, but I had all the time in the world to look for a recipe while at work earlier in the day. If there was only some way to know what groceries I had at home (while at work) and I could plug them into a machine that would help recipes find me instead of me looking for recipes If there was such a machine, my stomach would be full and I’d be relaxing on my couch right now. Just think if you were house-hunting and instead of looking at house after house, the perfect house finds you or if you are car shopping and the perfect car finds you.
There has got to be a better way to search for recipes AND there is! Will I tell you right now? Well, what is the fun in that? I’ll give you a hint – it’s a website that you can use from anywhere you can get access to the internet. The requirements for the recipes listed are that they have to be delicious (as determined by the users) and they must be quick and easy to make (as determined by the users).
