I'm so bored with my own cooking that I could scream. This whole "trying to buy more natural ingredients" thing that I've been doing since last spring (thankyou Nourishing Traditions...more like BORING Traditions), combined with B being on the gaps diet means we've been eating ground beef, and a whole chicken for our meat (fasting period excepted of course) for lo these many many moons, and I am SICK of hamburgers on sprouted grain buns, I'm SICK of roasted chicken and vegetables, I'm SICK of meatloaf-especially the gaps kind, and I'm SICK of meaty pasta bake (ground beef, pasta, sauce and cheese...yay rah!)....What else is there? I don't cook much else. Boring, boring, boring. I'm in SUCH a rut!
I can't think of anything to cook, and I've been making the same darned thing over and over and it's just not good.
Yeah, sometiems I'll take some of that ground beef and do a stir fry with curry powder. Oh, the thrill! (Not!).
I want to buy breakfast cereal. I'm SO GLAD that convenience got ruined for me. NOT!
Perhaps my new year's resolution ought to be finding RECIPES, and actually using them. And then what would Bethany eat? Meat and veggies, veggies and meat. poor kid. Well, that's all she eats anyways. And what would Eric eat? See, he's got aspie food issues and stuff has to either be hyper processed or super plain. Perhaps I should just buy a stack of frozen pizzas for the boy and wash my hands of his food issues.
It all gets to be a bit much and I truly wish sometimes I could try an exotic recipe on this family and have it be something that people would or could actually EAT.
Can you tell I'm needing to go grocery shopping right now? Should I spend it at Kroger, Aldi, Whole Foods (aka WHole Paycheck) or the dread Walmart? Maybe I should find a balance between my pastured beef, raw milk and some Lucky Charms?
And to top it all off, I need to lose some serious weight in 2010...and I have no idea where to begin other than drinking black coffee and gagging down eggs for breakfast.
It's all so complicated, and yes, I guess I'm crying right now. Happy homemaker I am SO NOT. Good thing no one is going to fire me.
