What Works Works: Menu Writing

So I got away from Menu writing, for a bit and gave those home delivery meal boxes a try.
I enjoyed our time with Blue Apron and Hello Fresh , I tried out lots of new ingredients and recipes. I liked that the home delivery option sent everything needed and I did not have to go out and get a big jar of spice ( or what ever) to try something new that called for 2 TBSP. When looking through my cook book collection that often stops me from trying a new recipe or ingredient.
I have recently ended my box meal deliveries because, I found for the two of us the portion sizes were insufficient and not budget friendly.
So Starting today I am back to Menu writing a system that has proven to work better for us.

  •  a couple garlic cloves whole or minced (whatever you have)
  •  1 Tbs of lime
