I can feel myself becoming less inspired to cook as every day passes. I just wish that I could hang out with the kids, doing whatever we feel like doing, and come home at dinnertime to - dinner! However, I just don't think my dream of having a personal chef will ever come true.
So, it's back to reality, and needing to make a dinner plan... sigh.
Here's what I'm making, using foods I have in the house:
Green Pea Soup (saute onion, garlic in olive oil. add frozen peas, water or soup stock, and salt and pepper to taste. bring to a boil, lower flame, and simmer for 10 min. Puree. add milk (you can use soy or rice milk, if you prefer). gently reheat, and serve)
Couscous with lentils (remixing some leftovers!)
Make your own salad (we have lettuce, cucumbers, tomatoes, yellow peppers, green onions, and green olives that need to be used!)
Eggplant & Zucchini non-Parmesan (just layer breaded eggplant and zucchini with some homemade tomato sauce, topped with mozzarella cheese - no parmesan for so many reasons.)
