Hello, my name is Charlene and welcome to Thinking Outside the Pot. I am a wife, mom of two super cute kids and I love to cook. When I was first married my husband and I were both going to school, and working as well. We were beyond busy. Little did we know life would just get busier? Our meals consisted of about 7 to 8 different dishes or going out to eat. That just wasn’t working well for us. We decided one day we needed more variety and to be more creative with our menu, as well as keeping it healthy. I am excited to be able to share my blog with all of you of the different recipes and food I love. It really can be easy and fun to cook!!
