Sometimes just when I can't take it anymore I put my foot down and DECIDE to like making my family dinner. I don't know why it 'gets to me'. Once in a while a thought will go through my mind like, "really? again? tonight?" Which is crazy since we have to eat every night. Sometimes what gets me over the hump is getting out a cookbook I haven't used in a while. A seasonal one always helps me feel happy about cooking again. (Susan Branch cookbooks are my all time favorite for falling in love with the idea of cooking for my family, making my home cozy, and my kitchen feel good)
Or taking pictures of the food we eat. Here is Monday through Friday of last week. We are not a 'take out' family. Can't be with EoE. But that's okay too. We save money and it tastes better. And the oven warms the kitchen.
And all of us around the table on a cold, dark, winters night; that warms my heart.
Chicken pot pie... heavenly on a Monday night
Mama's parm chicken bake.
A new salad dressing I love... made with honey!
Baking makes me feel complete.
