Making the same meals so often makes dinner easy to get out, even on the days when cooking is just about the last thing I want to do. The flip side of that is that cooking gets really boring. Really. Boring. Even when I have the energy to cook, I'm so uninspired that the first thought that comes to mind is whether I should call for Pizza or Chinese. Being bored quickly defeated all of my good intentions behind menu planning.
My approach this week is a bit more ambitious than past weeks. I'm trying out a few new recipes. Prep each night will be required to make the next night's meal. But to feel inspired to cook each night is worth it. Motivation will follow. I hope.
