My family could take or leave meat, which is quite contrary to the way that Kelly’s family eats. (Wouldn’t it be a very boring world if we were all the same?!) Don’t get me wrong, chicken is still a staple in our house and my four-year-old recently told us that bacon was his favorite “meat food”, but I, personally, don’t eat red meat…so, my husband and children reserve it for when they are out or dining in other people’s homes.
I’m a pretty nostalgic person and I often find myself reminiscing about the food that my parents made when I was living with them (a very, very long time ago). I often challenge myself to take those old favorites (such as beef stroganoff) and adapt them to my current eating style.
Sometimes, something very magical occurs…
