I tend to go through phases where I don't cook at all for a while and then get tired of all the prepared or frozen stuff or subs and other take out so I start cooking again. I like very much to cook but don't seem to alot enough time for it. Then something sets me off like the pot luck lunch at work where everyone raved about my beef chili, for weeks after they were still complimenting me on it. Since then, in the past few weeks, I've been making beef and veggie stew and it's so good I eat as many as four bowls in a day. I've had it for breakfast, lunch And dinner! I made it again and did the same. That stuff is soooooo good. I added even more fresh ingredients this time including green, red and yellow peppers. It was as pretty as it was tasty. (Should say "is" because I still have one serving left in the freezer).
Right now I'm making an eye roast. Who knows what else next. I think I'm gonna get too heavy before spring comes if I don't watch out. Maybe that's why there are such good sales on the stuff cause it's in less demand as people try and lighten up after a long winter of less or no exercise and all that holiday partying weight gain stuff. It's never been a problem for me, if anything keeping weight ON is. But that's not all that fun either and when I do eat too much for too long I can get out of shape.
I still want to keep on cooking though and hate to cook just a smaller amount, it's hardly worth the effort. Then, not everything freezes or keeps well in the fridge so I have to eat it. Oh well, gotta go, the roast is just about done. At least what I make it good enough to have every day until it's gone so I don't waste and, along with being healthier, it sure does cut down on costs too.
Anyone else out there have that "be careful what you wish for, you just might get it" problem when it comes to culinary skills? I'm already thinking omelettes next as the weekend and brunches are just around the bend, bread too. I haven't cranked up the bread maker in a long time.
