New Cook, New Forum Member, Old Guy!

Hi folks!
I'm a 55 year old husband, father and grandfather, who has only now decided to cook anything beyond meat-n-potatoes and coffee cakes.
I've started a Blog, (see my Signature) to chronicle my adventures. I'm sure I'll have lots of questions, and my share of failures and victories.
The wife is a wonderful cook and I'm learning a great deal from her. I couldn't ask for a better teacher!!
"The Joy Of Cooking" (75th) is my foundational book, along with a few others that have been helpful.
-Greetings all!

thanks everyone, for your support and well wishes..............I'm trying to decide the next "real" dish to attempt. Suggestions welcome. I'm thinking that I should base my choice on what's in the cupboard at this point (now getting close to the end of the week), and not what I "want" to make (which would require an extra trip to the grocery store. (I think there's an uncooked, thawed out chicken in the refrigerator.................

Welcome to DC! Chicken cacciatore or chicken paprika comes to mind. They are pretty easy for novice cooks (two of the first chicken dishes I made when I moved out of my parents' house many, many moons ago). It depends on what is in the cupboard.
