It’s not in here, that’s for darn sure (pardon the mess).
I have been avoiding going in here, and cooking in general, for weeks.
I’ve noticed my lunches and dinners have been parts of meals and not actual feasts for the last month or so. I’m not sure if it’s a lack of inspiration, an abundance of perspiration (it’s too hot in TO to cook, dammit!) or the small cramped space just getting the better of me after two years.
But as I look into my microwavable dish at lunch every day, what continues to stare back at me is the same thing; a piece of steak, pork or chicken, some cut up peppers, zucchini, broccoli and cauliflower. It makes me wonder who in their right mind would want to eat this? And WHY do I KEEP eating this, day in and day out?! There’s no imagination or thought that goes into it. No love. No spice, even! BORING.
I just go through the motions, in the kitchen and at the grocery store, buying the same things and not adding anything really different to my basket week after week. Before I used to be adventurous, trying recipes, making big batches of things and having a bit of variety throughout the week.
Where did that girl go? I mean, I don’t even boredom bake! WHAT THE HECK!?!?!?!
So maybe I just need food inspiration? A new veggie to try? A recipe to have at? Decorating ideas? Declutter the counters?
What do you think?
