I don’t enjoy cooking. Years ago I was enthusiastic, but lost interest because my family has very narrow menu interests. Pretty much meat and starch. Not much interest in vegetables. I surprise myself now by making an effort to cook nice meals. Life is boring now and we don’t eat out. We are four- two adult children live with us. We keep an eye out for sales on good beef and pork. I love fish- they won’t touch it. I try to vary the starchy side dishes too. Mashed, baked, scalloped, au gratin potatoes. Rice, pasta etc. At times my daughter and I try to avoid carbs and use the riced cauliflower or zucchini noodles. Works well with meat sauce.
We have succeeded staying away from cakes- but there is also ice cream always! And dark chocolate. Saturday’s my daughter and I celebrate with a glass of Prosecco.
This was a lengthy post from someone who does not like cooking.
