So in addition to slacking on the blog I’ve also been slacking on my cooking. In the past, I’d have the meals planned out for the week, down to the side dish and salad I’d serve alongside. And then I became employed. How working women – and men of course – with children handle everything, including dinner, with grace and creativity really amaze me. I just sometimes want to order a pizza! And it’s not like my job is hard or exhausting. It’s just that I don’t get home till almost 5.00 and anything I REALLY want to make takes over an hour to prepare OR I don’t have the proper ingredients because I haven’t been to the grocery store in two weeks. Ugh.
I have also vowed, in addition to consistent blogging, to be better in the kitchen, well, because this is supposed to musings from my kitchen. So I’m setting a menu this weekend, shopping Saturday morning, and recommitting to fun and fabulous meals.
The cheat meal tonight: sautéed tilapia with store-bought lemon-pepper seasoning. Needless to say, while it ‘nourished’ us it just wasn’t me. I threw the lemon-pepper seasoning out. The corn by the way – roasted in the oven – was sweet and the kernels popped in our mouths!
Here’s to a better dinner tomorrow. Lamb maybe… Stay tuned!
