Day 364: Yes, there were times, I’m sure you knew, When I bit off more than I could chew

December 30, 2007

This evening L made Nacho Bread Pizza [recipe] while I rocked Baby N and sort of read directions. When I went upstairs to change and feed the baby, L finished and photographed the meal. He didn’t process the chopped and seeded and diced part of the instructions so our toppings were a little on the chunky side, but that was not a big problem. This meal is essentially the salad from the base of a plate of nachos with the refried beans, cheese, salsa and toppings from the top of a pile of nachos, minus the nachos. Obviously the nachos were replaced by bread. Overall, it was enjoyed by the people. It was an interesting sandwich but not one which I personally was madly in love with. We had a pleasant evening debate over which of the stuffed sandwiches to date was the most successful. Let’s see how Hamburger and Onion Stuffed Bread is received tomorrow.

So tomorrow, the last day of 2007. What a year, what a lot of changes we’ve made. What a lot of food we’ve eaten. People keep saying to us “I bet you can’t wait to finish the Rachael Ray project”, but oddly enough that isn’t the case. Although an odd thing to do, now it just “is”. A year is a long time, and now this is our normal. Which is why we are going to continue in some shape or form. We still haven’t hammered out the details, that’s what tomorrow is for presumably.

    I’ve enjoyed reading your blog this year. I’m impressed that you were able to stick it out through all 365 days–the food would be enough, but add in all the other changes in your household, and it takes this endeavor to a whole new level. Thanks for providing an excellent diversion, and best wishes for the new year!

    Don’t do it! For your tastebuds. For your palate. Don’t do another Rachael ray cookbook recipe blog.
    I admire you and your husband holding your tenacity (insanity) of doing that cookbook faithfully for a year, but really, don’t do it again.
    If you must, try another cookbook. Another chef. A real chef, with real recipes. Not makeovers of the same crap switched up just so it can have another recipe name.

    Get a sitter. Go out to dinner with your DH. I’m sure that you’ll decide that there is no way that you can make HER recipes for another freaking year. Seriously.
