I've been dealing with the mass of veggies I purchased because they all looked so good. So far we have had some mega veggie salads and a wonderful rainbow chard dish as well as zucchini sauteed with onions and garlic. I also made applesauce out of some apples that weren't sitting well in our stomachs when eaten raw.
This afternoon I decided to deal with others in the bin so I washed all the rest of the salad greens and cooked the baby beets and beet greens. I mixed them together and added a bit of vinegar. We will have them tomorrow.
Tonight is fish with leftover green salad and some sweet potato that I bought today. I plan on making a big batch of roasted veggies on Friday to use up a lot of what is left. I might actually make it through it all without tossing any!
Cooking meal after meal is an interesting challenge. Sometimes I am diligent about making up a menu plan and shopping to it. Then I get tired of that and just buy what looks good as well as what we are out of and is on the list. I think of those weeks as more improvisational LOL.
I guess after learning to cook when I was about 9 years old and my Mom had a bad shoulder for about 6 months and then cooking for myself and various family members since I was 19 I am a bit tired of the routine. Fortunately Hubby pitches in and is a good cook. Both my sons have turned into great cooks so I feel like we did a good job there.
Laundry, some cleaning, food shopping and cooking have to be done. How do you keep yourself interested and motivated around these type of repetitive chores?
