What New Year’s Rut?

How on Earth did it get to be Monday? So much for one-day work weeks and all the holiday feasts. It’s back to real life, but don’t fret!

We here at Feaston don’t believe in the full-on resolution, but we do like the idea of taking a moment at the beginning of the New Year and looking at ways we can improve across the board. While we have certainly made a commitment to cooking at home more frequently, and bringing all the delicious results to you, we’ve also renewed our efforts in making sure that our meals are easy, quick, cheap and healthy. After all, isn’t that what most home cooks want?

In the upcoming weeks, you can look forward to some dollar-stretching solutions, as well as recipes that don’t include as much cheese, sour cream or butter. Of course, feel free to add any or all of those to dinner if you like. We’re just trying to keep it a little less fatty ’round these parts.

And we are starting off on the right foot! This week you can look forward to some incredibly tasty, affordable and healthy dinners – all made-to-order in your kitchen. Here’s the line up:

  • Cheater Chicken Alfredo – a lighter, faster, more convenient form of an Italian American classic.
  • Vegetarian Vegetable Soup for the dark, cold nights ahead and
  • Shrimp and Veggie Stir Fry to take you into the weekend

We recently had a generous donation in the form of several international beers to the Feaston Fund (don’t let good cooks go hungry!), so there are plenty of Thirsty Thursday posts on the horizon, with brews for any palette.

Got a suggestion for a meal we should make or a drink we should try? Drop us a line at feastonian at gmail dot com.

    Glad to hear that Feaston is going to go it a bit lighter in ’09! Let’s have less fat & more veggies – with a little meat thrown in for the dedicated carnivors (like Davey).

    Have you considered any other crock-pot recipes? Those are life savers in this house where commuting long distance (daily) is the rule!
