I am in a bonafide cooking slump. I don’t want to cook. At all. Anything. At times like this, I subsist on sandwiches and waffles with peanut butter on them.
It’s sad. And scary. It’s Spring for goodness sakes! The asparagus is growing! The Brussels Sprouts are at the Farmer’s Market! What the heck is wrong with me?
What do you do when a cooking slump hits? I search magazines, Tastespotting, Pinterest, my favorite foodie blogs, and cookbooks, for something, ANYTHING, that appeals to me. And I try to find simple things to fix. No barbecue chicken pizzas on a gluten free crust. No highfalutin’ crustless quiches. Just simple, easy, normal fare.
So, here’s my meal plan this week.
Sunday: It’s just me and the hubby, so something simple. Maybe just some pasta or soup. I think I have some gluten free noodles….
Monday: Breakfast! Scrambled eggs, bacon, home fries, and cheese grits.
Tuesday: Sauerkraut and kielbasa with potato pancakes
Wednesday: GF Macaroni and cheese, roasted broccoli, and wedge salads
Thursday: Eat with my family
Friday: Just me! And I’ll be neck-deep in readathon-ing, so actually, probably just a sandwich.
Saturday: Mississippi Roast in the crockpot cause I’ll be reading and cheering and co-hosting all day long.
What are you planning on cooking this week? What are your go-to simple meals? What do you do when you have a cooking slump?
