March is upon us

I have been having fun the past few days finding new cooking spots to view as well as blogs on cooking. The latest I found this morning was for 50+ if you are interested. The site name is EON and here is the cooking group community.eons
There are two cooking groups and I joined both. It will be a fun exchange of ideas, recipes and just comments. There are many groups to get into which I can read now and then but I chose the cooking cuz that is my main interest now. My favorite haunt now is Slashfood at Slashfood who always has something of interest going on.
Here is a place to post your stickies each day to keep from losing your to-do list. STIKKITS is the place to go each day whether to add something new or even check out your latest to-do-list. I am finding I go there more and more as I am thinking about jotting something down as I surf the web. Great!!!!
Another place for searching out something specific whether shopping or whatever. Come join WINZY and maybe even win something. They have daily prizes based on the members who come for searches each day. The site is WINZY This tells them I referred you to join.

I figured we can always use a good laff and this kitty will get us there.

Lent is coming next Wednesday and I need to stock up with lenten meals and recipes. I usually cook whatever for this period of time but I also like to have meals available on busy days.

One of the mainstays is macaroni and cheese which goes with most things. There are plenty of good recipes available on Southern Living, Better Homes and Gardens, Sunset and other cooking sites. All you need to do is add a can of tuna(drained) and some green peas and you will have a good meal.

I love fish but not so much the frozen. I already have shrimp in my freezer so I plan on a few meals with this item. Being as most of the fish markets here in MS are gone, due to Katrina's help, there is not much fresh fish to purchase. Maybe some of the local stores may have something available. Lobster and crab usually is there but can get expensive. We like gumbo and can use the crab and shrimp for a good meal. So there are many good ideas if a person is creative.

Of course meals can be created without any fish which I have tried in the past. I love vegetables of all kinds and a good cheese omelet with goodies added is delicious. Pizza is another answer to meals which can have lots of ingredients added to the cheese. The only time it can be tedious is when I am hungry and I don't care to wait a half hour while I create. As I sit here to write this, I am writing down ideas so I will be ready next week.
