For the first 16 years of marriage I never repeated a recipe! I loved cookbooks and read them like novels, keeping a list of the recipes I wanted to try in the back of each book. After a meal I would ask my husband to vote whether the recipe was a keep or not. By about year 12 he started saying, “It doesn’t matter if I vote to keep it or not. I’ll still never see it again!”

I found lots of good recipes during that time. And some I probably shouldn’t have wasted the ingredients on. But, it was fun and dinner was always a special occasion. Try some variety!
