I have stacks and stacks of cookbooks and even more so magazines flagged with pages of recipes to try. When I began my planning for this week’s meals I wanted to change things up a bit, or completely really, so I went to my old archives I don’t use nearly enough and dusted them off.

I found this magazine titled “Meals in Minutes,” which I literally bought over 10 years ago, and who isn’t looking for meals made in minutes these days? Not me! What’s particularly humorous, or at least I think, is that when I bought this little magazine, and oddly enough I do remember buying it, I was not only kid less but completely single living in the city (er, technically Hoboken, NJ but close enough I was working in the city).
