There’s something that I have to admit, that I really don’t want to admit, but I have to. I’m in kind of a food/ cooking rut. I just feel like my recipes are not all that creative lately. I’m talking dinner recipes, not dessert or breakfast recipes, with those I’m doing great..mostly in part thanks to Jess 😀
For instance, here is what I made Sunday night–
Carba nada noodles with ground turkey tomato sauce & vegetables on the side.
Now, don’t get me wrong, I LOVE this meal. I just feel like it’s ‘too basic.’ Do you know what I mean? I kind of like being more creative.
Last night was even worse– I actually picked up food from Boston Market!
Salad for me- no meat (Rockin’ MEAT FREE MONDAY!! 🙂 ) & beef brisket for the boy!
This is really unheard of for me to do during the week. I ALWAYS cook on the weekdays & then we usually go out to eat one day during the weekend.
I do have this recipe that I saw on Liz’s blog Monday morning- Shrimp Scampi with Tomatos & Artichokes. I really want to make this because it has some of Craig’s favorite ingredients in it- Sundried tomatos & artichokes. But, since we just had pasta on Sunday night, I figure I will wait until later in the week to make this…or maybe even save it for a special weekend meal 🙂
Maybe I’m just in a funk today, I’m sure I will snap out of it soon. I think part of the reason I am in this funk is because I forgot to pull the chicken out of the freezer yesterday morning…which is what I was going to cook Monday night.
Do you ever go through these ‘cooking phases?’ What’s your favorite way to snap out of them?
I’m sure I will be more creative tonight. I remembered to pull the chicken out of the freezer….hey, it’s a start! At least I hope 😉
I can watch this movie over & over again…well, actually I do that 😀 Everytime it is on, I am watching it. Craig is like ‘this movie AGAIN?!’ But it’s one of those feel good movies. I think it’s because one of my favorite actor’s is Jack Nicholson! Isn’t he just great?! I would tell you about this movie, but I think if you haven’t seen it, then you should rent it 😉
Day 25: Someone who fascinates you & why.
mmm this is kind of a tough one. I think I’m going to go with Kelly Ripa–>
I think she is adorable!! Not only does she host my FAVORITE morning talk show– Regis & Kelly:
She also has an AMAZING body! At least I think so, some people think she’s too skinny, but I really do think she keeps herself healthy.
Have I told you enough how much I want her biceps?! OMG. They are so toned! But not like big & bulky…just really toned!
Love it! I would really like to have all Electrolux appliances….ahhhh….maybe one day 😀 Are we allowed to add a washer & dryer to our wedding registry?!? 😉
So, what do you think of Kelly Ripa? It’s ok if you don’t like her. Craig can’t stand her. He thinks her voice is annoying, but I think she is hilarious.
Who is someone that fascinates you? And why do they fascinate you?
Well, I’m off! I’ve got some work to do. I think I will take full advantage of this beautiful weather though & go for another run on my lunch break 🙂 Perfect way to break up the day! Oh ya, I forgot to mention, I’m going to start doing doubles again- 2 workouts/ runs a day. Not everyday, but at least 2-3 days a week. I will be making sure I get in those extra calories to keep up with my workouts though 🙂 I’ve definitely learned the value of good nutrition & making sure that I eat enough for the amount of time I spend working out.
Have a good day!!! 😀
