A few weeks ago, I had the brilliant idea to cook my way through the alphabet. The inspiration stemmed from a novel called Alphabet Weekends, the movie “Julie & Julia”, and my own weekend boredom. Although I basically have no spare time whatsoever, I was getting tired of eating the same meals, and I needed motivation to get out of my food rut and try cooking new dishes.
There are only three rules.
(1) One letter per week.
(2) I have to make something I’ve never made before –OR–
(3) If it’s something I have made before, I have to make up my own recipe.
I immediately knew what I’d make for some of the letters. There are multiple ideas I’ve had on the back burner for some time now, but I just haven’t gotten around to attempting them yet. Other letters are going to be slightly harder (X anyone?), and I’ll be racking my brain trying to come up with a dish. Any which way you slice it, my kitchen will be full of pots and pans, appealing aromas, and fantastic food for the next six months.
