January/February Cooking Light

(Edited to add links 1/4/07)
I've already made one recipe. I'll review it this weekend.

I got my issue today! I'm still going through it, but I am going to start keeping track of the ones I hope to make this month--there are 22 total! Wow, I don't know that I've ever found that many in one issue. I guess I should get busy cooking! I'll update this post later with recipe links, comments, and reviews of those I actually make.
My schedule is about to be crazy. Tonight I worked until almost 7, went to the gym for 70 minutes of cardio, got home at 8:45, threw together some pasta with chickpeas, 1 small piece of bacon, and a teaser of parmesan cheese. It was OK for a quick dinner, which on days like today are all I'm up for! My hope is to do better at stocking my freezer, especially with hearty soups and stews.
