Just One Of The Many Reasons I Hate To Cook

Please don’t analyze too closely why I am still in my workout clothes while cooking dinner. 🙂

Just to prove that I am actually cooking, here is what has been produced thus far:
pork chops, brown rice and green beans, and blueberry citrus salad
roasted red pepper soup and garlic & herb bread sticks
frozen pizza – What? It totally counts!
steaks, rosemary roasted red potatoes and asparagus
And for tonight, beef barley soup and sides that are yet to be determined

I hope everyone had a nice weekend. Ours was pretty tame. We did see Thor, which we both liked and thought was worth going to the theater for. Also, it’s nice to have the husband home on the weekends. He’s very nice about helping me with the sick dog.

Fat Tuesday Volume XVIII

It’s almost the end of this Fat Tuesday. After much consideration and a cheeseburger, I have decided that I must go back to some of the original impetus for this blog. I am challenging myself not to eat out, and to fix the husband’s lunch every day. I won’t be as strict as I was in the beginning. I can eat out once a week for dinner, and once a week for lunch. Can doesn’t mean have to.

I don’t know why I dislike cooking so much. It’s really ridiculous, especially when it’s usually so much better for you. And it’s definitely better for your wallet. I find the grocery shopping and the kitchen clean up to be so annoying. The actual cooking is okay.

If anyone one has any super easy and healthy recipes to send my way, I’d be very grateful. I have a couple of good cookbooks by Pam Anderson (not the boobtastic one!) and I heard she has a new on out with one dish meals. That sounds like it’s right up my alley.

So, I guess I will do this for the next 40 days. Hopefully, both my waistline and my pocketbook will be in better condition at the end. And holy crap, the blog name will have some meaning for a while!
