Help in the Kitchen! 

QUESTION: “Help! My kitchen is starting to feel overwhelming. My husband and I are starting to realize that we have been progressively getting worse and worse with spending waaaay over what we should on food because we are eating every meal out practically, except for sometimes making bacon and eggs at home. So after talking about how we’ve been pulling constantly from our savings account just to cover our spending habits, we know we need to get better it’s just so hard when that’s what we’re so used to and also when everything we TRY to cook at home often gets thrown away because it’s terrible LOL. And my main question I wanted to ask is, breakfast is the one thing I’m starting to struggle with most because every option is either super sugary, super processed, or super greasy/unhealthy (we’ve been eating bacon every day and it’s going to be hard to get my husband off of it!). I hate oatmeal, and I’ve tried it and tried it, and I’m still trying to get myself to like it but he also hates it and won’t eat it. Any healthy ideas?”

My journey in the kitchen

You are certainly not alone in this struggle! I came into marriage with absolutely no practical kitchen or cooking skills. We had many food flops in the early days of our marriage and ate lots of frozen burritos while I figured out what I was doing in the kitchen!! 

Now a days, most women don’t learn how to cook and manage a home before they get married. So if you are like me, then you get thrown in marriage and realize how little you actually know. It can be tough (especially when you feel like everyone else knows what they are doing)!

  1. Kim Sorgius (notconsumed .com) has a couple of books all about making a breakfast station. Her idea is to prep ahead 6-8 breakfast foods (some as easy as store bought yogurt) that will provide options for a month or more. Some are in the freezer and some are in the cupboards. I’ve not seen anything else quite like it and find the idea very helpful. I don’t make all of her recipes but it has been a good starting point and is very kid-friendly in the food and set up.
