Jane wrote about what she cooked when she was first married to give encouragement to her newlywed daughter.  It brought back good memories of newlywed life and some of those new found problems.  Here are a few:

  • We ate a lot of taco meat and hamburger helper meals thanks to the food bank at the seminary.
  • I remember buying a candy bar just about every time I went to the grocery store, because now I could.
  • I remember wondering how long it would be before we had a "junk drawer."
  • I remember saying to David when he would ask me what to use to clean something, "Well in my house we would have used a rag, but we don't have any of those yet."
  • I remember we often called either my mom or his mom to ask some cooking question.
  • We also asked either his dad or mine about how to fix this or what to do about that quite often.

I'm sure there were others, but that is all I can remember right now.  Interesting walk down memory lane.   What do you remember about that time in your life?

I remember being amazed that I could make chocolate chip cookies any time I wanted. It was up to me!

I remember not wanting to make a pan of lasagna because we'd get tired of it before getting to the end of that huge 13x9 pan.

A few years into marriage, I remember drinking a mixture of powdered milk and evaporated milk, because that's what we got from WIC and CSFP (Commodity Supplemental Food Program).
