If you’re like a good percentage of Americans right now, you may be at home. And you’re likely cooking more than you have in a long time. For me, with four kids and a hubby that loves to eat, we’ve tried our best to keep meals interesting. The food shortage- I hesitate to call it this because I really don’t think there is actually a food shortage so much as a re-allocation to where it’s going now- has caused some of us to get creative and use what we’ve got. Lemons to lemonades (although I don’t have those at my house right now either).
I thought it might be fun to do a kitchen challenge each day for the next couple of weeks. Today’s challenge is:
Use a spice that you’ve never used before.
You know you probably bought a spice (or it came in a spice rack) that you meant to use before but never really did. I know I have a few that I’m not even sure what they taste like. Now that we’ve got great resources like Google and Pinterest this should be easy to find. I’d love to see what you come up with- even if it’s just adding it to a recipe you already use! I’ll post what I made tomorrow.
May you all stay safe, healthy, and sane today- and remain thankful for all of those that are working to keep us safe and to keep the economy going through this!
