may menu

I've been resisting doing menu posts for a looooooong time.

I was always nervous about them.  What if I changed my mind about what I wanted to cook?  What if I didn't make it through all of the dishes?  What if one of them flopped and I decided not to blog about it?  What if, what if, what if...

And then it hit me...this is a blog, not a contract!  If I change my mind, I change my mind.  If I don't make it through all of these dishes, I'll just roll some over to the next month.  And if one flops...well, it flops.  No biggie.

With a baby at home, I've got less and less time to pour through cookbooks, create recipes, and go grocery shopping.  I think it's about time that I attempt a monthly menu.  I've listed the recipes I've picked for this month in no particular order.  As I post about them, I'll come back to this post and link up the recipes (only for those that turn out to be worthy, of course!).  Anything I don't get to will be rolled over to the next month.

We'll see how this goes!

Note: All dishes with an asterisk are those I'll be reviewing for Gooseberry Patch's new cookbook, Harvest Table.
