Try new meal ideas in the new year to get out of your routine or food "rut". We suggest theme weeks where you pick one country to cook from all week: Italy, Spain, Mexico, China and France are some of our favorites. Consult the Food Network website for terrific recipes covering everything under the sun. You can even decorate for a fun night of "around the world eating"; or, do a potluck "around the world" night... ask friends to bring dishes from different countries for an international tasting! Try new spices, new fresh fruits and vegetables that you have never cooked with before. Innovate and create new family favorites to expand your menu dossier!
