Day 29 – Cooking

I wish I enjoyed cooking. This would be the perfect time to cook up a storm! Baking, prepping, tasting? Nah. It’s a struggle for me to come up with ideas for dinner every night. Now, with the pandemic, I actually have to come up with something for dinner EVERY NIGHT! Pre-pandemic, I planned and prepared 4-5 meals per week. The other days, hubby grills, we eat leftovers, or perhaps go out to eat or order pizza.

Mid-pandemic, I am at a loss. I went to the grocery store today without planning what we would have for meals each day. I usually sit down and plan out each evening’s meal, trying to use what we have in the house already. I didn’t do that. So I stood there, trying to figure out what to get. It’s a good thing I wasn’t hungry at the time! Plus, I really wanted to get out of there quickly! Safer at home!

So, I have some ideas for this week… we will order from a local restaurant tonight. Each delivery comes with a song! The delivery driver is bringing a gentleman along who will play guitar and serenade you from the sidewalk. I think I’m looking forward to that more than the food! Pork chops, chicken, pasta. Our staples. It will work.

Am I cooking more? Definitely. Am I enjoying it? Not really. I might enlist some help and make some chocolate chip cookies today, though. Need to get the boy off the Xbox! Stay safe everyone!

  1. Even though I like cooking, I still enjoy frozen pizza on a regular basis. Plus planning is hard now. You can easily get to the store and not find the ingredients. If I could find ground beef we would have tacos once a week for sure.
