We have been married for 4 years now and I am just now getting consistantly good at cooking a meal. Mind you...there are still times he tells me "thanks but lets not repeat that meal!" I have started going to a blog called "Picky Pallete" (the link is located on the side of my blog) and I print out the 3 or 4 recipes I want to try that week. I then for my shopping list from those recipes, and fill in with other necessities. It has made my life so much easier, and I have not had to stress everynight wondering "What should I make tonight?" Oh, and it has helped us eat healthier! OK...so I totally went off on a tangent! Wow! Sorry, but I am so proud of you for trying to improve your cooking skills. I have learned that my husband feels my love most when I have dinner ready each night. The way to a man's heart is through food? I believe it! ;)

I think when we made that we just used a bag of stir fry veggies instead of those specifically.
