Well not food so much as cooking and thinking of what to cook day in and day out.
I am still meal planning each week and shopping to the plan but I don’t think there has been a single day in the last couple of weeks when I haven’t walked in to the kitchen to start cooking and realised that the last thing I feel like doing is cooking what is planned for the evening.
Before anyone shouts I do realise this is a first world problem – with famine, war, conflict in so many parts of the world I should just be grateful that I have food to cook and a kitchen to cook it in. I know that and I am.
I am just not usually so bored or disenchanted with cooking for such a long period of time.
At no point have I resorted to takeaways – too expensive and generally not nice. Nor have I shot out to the supermarket to buy other things when I haven’t fancied making what was planned, I have either gotten on with it or adapted things slightly to suit what was available. I just have no inspiration, no urge to cook which is not like me.
I think I need to get out all my (far too many) cookbooks – yes I am aware of the irony of having vast numbers of cookery books and no urge to cook – and try to find some inspiration.
Perhaps, also, I am spending too much time at home, I am not used to working from home quite so much as I am doing now, and it might be that I am missing going out to work, missing getting out of the house as much as I used to. I need to look for more things to do outside the home so I look forward more to coming back to it.
Either way my cooking mojo (I am not sure I really know what mojo means!) has vanished and I would like it back! Any suggestions?
