One of the things that I do miss about not having satelite or cable is the Food Network. There are a few shows on PBS that I enjoy - L's Italy and America's Test Kitchen but I can't say I've ever cooked a recipe from either for them. I was searching around Netflix last night looking for something, anything to watch and I found a show from 2007 called Pantry Raid. I have no idea if the show is still on the air but the first season is on Netflix. After watching a couple of them it inspired me that I could whip up something from our pantry without having a recipe. My husband is the throw something together from the pantry kind of person, not me. I need a recipe and I get in a rut of not having something ready for dinner because I didn't have the right ingredients for a recipe. As I type I have steamed corn and a salad from lettuce and radishes that I picked this morning waiting for the breaded pork chops that are in the oven. I did it! It's not a fancy dish, but I put something together without having a recipe.... and the oven is beeping me. Time to eat!
