Lately, I am in a cooking funk. A ditch. A rut. I am feeling lack luster about it. I LOVE to cook. It isn’t that I don’t want to continue, I just don’t have any fun ideas. I’m bored and I think we’ve done the chicken dish, pasta dish, taco night -rotation a little too much lately. So, I’m super ready for something new and different.
Enter the internet. When in doubt, just scour it. I hit up Allrecipes and was feeling pretty “eh” about it, so I continued on to Real Simple Magazine’s site. AH-HA! Hurray! Fun ideas!
A trip to the store is in my near and not-so-distant future, so I picked out the recipes that sounded the best, printed them out and wrote a grocery list accordingly. (If you don’t do this process now, I guarantee you will save money, time and stress by taking 1/2 hour of your week to accomplish this! You can do it!)
Here are the recipes I will be testing out next week:
I have to admit that I don’t plan to follow these recipes to a “T”…they inspired me and I have fun ideas about how I can jazz them up. So each day next week, I’ll be cooking one of these recipes, taking pictures and posting my ideas and feedback here. Who knows, maybe next week you’ll be inspired too!
If any of this sparks you, note it here in the comments and let me know how you tweaked the recipe or what you and your family thought! Let’s cook!
