Mini Challenge #3

Our first challenge this month at Counterfeit Kit Challenge, was to use food as inspiration for a project! I thought this was a fun challenge, but was stumped on what to do. I am not known for my cooking skills, and was not really feeling inspired by any of my meals. I do love coffee, however!! I am very good at brewing a delicious strong cup every morning. My son's teacher loves lattes, and I made her a coffee card to hold a gift card from Starbucks for teacher appreciation week, which gave me the idea for this card.

While making the card, I was suddenly inspired to make a mini album about my adventures in cooking! After getting married, I could barely boil water! I'm surprised we didn't starve that first year of marriage, because my hubby's not a great cook, either. I'd love to document how I've taught myself to cook basic meals like baked chicken (with mashed potatoes & gravy), homemade macaroni and cheese, pizza, pancakes, spaghetti sauce, and some of my other stand by recipes. It would be a funny look at my "food evolution", and also a memory of how we survived feeding four kids over the years. Obviously, I ran out of time before this project was due, but I will hopefully get to it before the month is over.

I didn't know you aren't much of a cook! I prefer eating over cooking.
