Well, now I'm not so sure.
I used to like cooking. I mean nothing got me more excited than a new recipe. So this weekend I went shopping for the ingredients for a dish I wanted to cook. I bought all the fixins and went to chopping and stirring and baking and cleaning up all the dang mess. I must try to use every utensil in the drawer.
After it was done, I ate a serving and it tasted okay. I mean it was good, sorta like a Mexican lasagna (corn tortillas, chicken, cheese, green chilies, in a sour cream sauce). My son came in later and ate some; he liked it a lot. I just didn't get that overall joy that I used to get when I cooked. Maybe it's because I don't cook that often anymore. Maybe it's because my son is hardly ever there to eat anything. Maybe it's because my mom is picky and doesn't ever think I wash my hands enough. Maybe I just don't like it. Anyway, it just wasn't fun.
I am going to make a veggie dish this week that has quinoa in it. I love that stuff so maybe it will be worth the effort. Otherwise, I think I'm giving up the apron and going one step further than just buying precut veggies. Maybe I'll just buy TV dinners, lol.
Have a good week everyone. We had a cool front come through here and it feels fantastic outside. Like a cool Pacific coast breeze. That reminds me, don't forget to hydrate!
