So here we are mothercookers. Monday,and what to make??
I always have great plans on how I’m going to cook and freeze meals at the weekend or plan a delicious menu to get us through the whole week…..but no, here we are again….nothing planned, nothing made.
Why is it such a struggle? You would think, for a girl surrounded by cookbooks and food magazines that it wouldn’t be a problem…but it is.
Once I’ve accommodated everyone’s likes and dislikes (a stupid thing to do, I don’t want fussy eaters), factored in my budget, worked out what time everyone is home from school, work, football etc etc…..established who will actually be here. (no one ever thinks of the meal planning when changing plans at the last-minute lol.) I’m no closer to deciding. I drool over fantastically styled food pages, and dream of living near a good fishmonger, but lets face it, I’m usually in a rush, my dinners taste good, but aren’t always much to look at, and I have to be in the mood to eat fish!
If you have ever watched Shirley Valentine you can kind of see her same day, same meal mentality. But that would be too boring for me.
I love to cook, I love to eat even more…but the planning…oh the planning is not an area where I excel…..
So the coffee pot is on, pen and paper at the ready…..lets see what tempts me, what looks good, is cheapish, and healthy..ish…….ideas and inspiration always welcome 🙂
