Alternative post title: That Time I Joined the Brown Food Club
Alright guys, it’s time I came clean.
I ate cereal for two out of my three meals THREE days last week. 😯
I’ve started convincing myself that “making” a pizza homemade consists of throwing mozzarella balls on a frozen pizza.
And coming from a self-proclaimed oatmeal connoisseur, this is just embarrassing BUT I’m sorry, there’s just something about warm strawberry oats mixed with plain Greek yogurt topped with peanuts…that’s ready in like two minutes.
Three words: ghetto grilled cheese
Explanation: Toast bread -> sandwich cheese between toast -> microwave -> consume.
Statement made in my defense: I only do this at work when I don’t have access to a stove.
And I dunked that ghetto grilled cheese in a big ol’ mug of CANNED tomato soup!
When I DO actually make soup from “scratch” it involves throwing precooked meatballs and everything else in my kitchen in a soup pot, simmering it for an hour, and then eating dinner at midnight.
And all the eggs I’ve eaten over the last few weeks have been scrambled (because it’s quicker) and sandwiched between two slices of bread with mayo (because
I lack creativity it reminds me of my childhood).
So yeah, I’ve gotten in a rut. I haven’t cooked…I mean REALLY cooked in ages. I can’t actually remember the last time I had a green leafy vegetable. But I have been blowing up my Pinterest boards with soups and easy one-pot dishes so hopefully soon, I’ll dig out on of my sauce pans, and uncover my kitchen mojo. Until then…I’ll be over here, ya know, perfecting my semi-homemade skills! 😉
What do you do to get out of a rut?
What’s the last thing you COOKED?
