Aran's gorgeous photo + recipe via design * sponge
So (in an attempt to go easy on myself) I'm going to chalk my forthcoming statement up to a sort of holiday food hangover...ok?
I'm not in the mood to cook. At all.
Not inspired, not dreaming up recipes, not thinking about what to make this weekend. Just plain not into it.
And yes, I really think it's partially due to all the heavy food we cooked in December. We were in the kitchen a lot the past couple of months...hosting Thanksgiving, dinner parties, Christmas Eve dinner, a Christmas day feast. Maybe I'm just burned out...oh and my jeans are awfully tight, so there's that too.
So we're not "cooking" a lot, rather we're preparing food. Simple pasta, lots of salad, big pots of easy white beans, hummus with crackers and celery, scrambled egg sandwiches, nothing worth blogging about, but it does the trick.
I'm trying to pull out friends, I am...I even spent Sunday afternoon pouring through kid's cookbooks with Audrey trying to drum up some inspiration.
So anyone else feeling this? Any tips for getting out of a January food funk?
