It's that time again. The time where I sit down to my computer and stress over what to feed the family for the next few weeks. While I really enjoy the process of cooking, I despise the act of meal planning itself. I worry is it too much pasta, too much chicken in a row, ect. While the family never seems to complain about what's on the table, I personally hate repetition. Yet, with that said, we are again doing the Korean chicken wings. These were such a HUGE hit with (almost) the entire family that they have asked for a repeat. The exception being Garrett who would like me to make his just traditional bbq wings.
Also, I'm taking a break this year from my traditional St. Patricks meal. Almost every year, we do corned beef with cabbage. While not an actual Irish meal from Ireland, it does reflect our Irish heritage as that was a common meal with Irish immigrants in the North Eastern United States, where my McGrath family is from. (My grandfather was Irish mixed with Mohegan).. To honor that heritage, I typically make Corned Beef. This year, I want to try something different.
