"Here he comes to save the day!  Thank goodness Supercook is on his way!"

This whole summer was so off kilter.  Menu planning went straight out the window.  We were on the road so much that we ate out a lot, then when Daddy died people brought so much food that we didn't cook at all for two weeks (in fact, my sister sent me home with so much food that I still didn't cook for days after coming back).

But it's time to get back on track.  Today I've been clearing kitchen counters and doing a rough inventory of the pantry, fridge, and freezer.  We have a surprising amount of food that does not go together.  :/   So it was a huge relief to have found Supercook.  You select ingredients you have from the list provided or enter them manually, and it offers a list of recipes you can make with them.

It's a pretty bare-bones operation but it functions smoothly, and I didn't have to sign up to use it.  There was no FAQ but it looks like if you do sign up, you can store recipes and create shopping lists.

Tonight, based on the ingredients I told it I have, our dinner will consist of Salisbury steaks with mushroom sauce, mashed potatoes, and a tomato and cucumber salad.  I'll just repeat this process over and over until I've gone thru all the food storage areas and can regroup with my usual menu planning.

Oh, remind me in a few days to tell you about the cool food storage thing Ella and I did last week.  We even won a prize for it!
