Forgettable meals...

Can we talk?

The last two months of my life have been a blur. It's as if the floodgates opened and out came personal issues, work matters and a slew of things ranging from the life-altering (the loss of a loved one) to the ridiculous (why didn't my DVR record the show I told it to?).

Thus, I put cooking, well, on the back burner. I can't remember when I last had the time and energy to really put some thought and love into a meal.

Don't you hate when you eat a meal and immediately afterward you're thinking, "OK, so that was a waste of time and calories." What's a meal (whether you cooked it or someone else prepared it for you) that left you painfully underwhelmed?

I'm with you on this topic. Life gets in the way! Lately, I've been so tired at night or getting home so late that I just throw something together. My herb pots are overgrowing from neglect, and my cupboards are getting bare. Honestly, aside from tomatoes from Findlay Market and Trader Joe's frozen veggies, I feel like I haven't been eating very healthy food!
Tonight, I hope that will all change. Fred and I mark six months today, so we're cooking a special dinner. What that will be is anyone's guess, but I do know there's a bag of kale in the fridge. I think we'll get some fish or shellfish from Findlay Market and go from there. That, and a bottle of white wine... I'll be a happy girl.
And welcome back! I'm sending good vibes your way.
