What’s For Dinner? I am an Air Traffic Controller by profession.As such I literally make thousands of
decisions every day.Believe it or not,
the decision that gives me the most agita is what we are having for
dinner.A daily phone conversation
between My Beautiful Wife and I, “What do you want to do for dinner?”, “I don’t
know, what do you want to do for dinner?”, “I don’t know….”.You get the picture. Last week we received in the mail a $30 gift card (coupon)
for Blue Apron , one of the many meal
delivery services available as of late.We decided to give it a try, and see if it was worth doing the meal
plan.Our first delivery came on Friday
of last week.I haven’t had to make a
decision about dinner all weekend.We
have four meals, all of the ingredients required for those meals, and very,

Happy National Empanada Day!
This morning, in honor of the holiday, National Empanada Day, I decided to make some empanadas. In deciding what kind to make I considered all the different kinds I could make. There are sweet, desserty empanadas like fruit filled empanadas. That would be good for breakfast, but lack of planning on my part left me with no fresh fruit for that option.
Then there are the savory empanadas, like beef filled, chicken filled or even cheese filled. I decided on turkey filled because using ground turkey is similar to ground beef, and I like to save my red meat for steaks and roasts. I always substitute ground turkey for ground beef, mostly because it's just the healthier option.
