Yesterday I decided to rediscover simple foods.
Part of my cooking slump has to do with over thinking. So I did what I used to do, simply react to what I have on hand.
This is what I came up with…
I feel like I’ve been in a kitchen slump lately. I’m just not motivated at the moment to whip up meals for the family or even little things for myself.
I think balancing the tastes and whims of a picky husband, a 6 year old, the baby (who now eats what we are eating for the most part) and myself, has sucked all my creative juices dry.

Sometimes I’ll make something and then get obsessed, making it over and over and over again.
It happened twice last week. First with The Most Amazing Bowl of Oatmeal EVER! I now have to stop myself from eating it every single morning. I decided to make a deal with myself and alternate eggs and oatmeal for breakfast from now on. Today was an omelet. Tomorrow you can bet I’ll be going to town on some banana, peanut butter, and chocolate oatmeal.
The other was this tuna burger. Read the rest of this post
Four years ago I posted a photo journal of “The Toddler” and I making pizza.
FOUR YEARS AGO!
Click here to see it. Honestly, it’s blowing my mind for 2 reasons. 1.) I can’t believe how old my baby is and 2.) I can’t believe I get to do it all over again with Little Bean!
