You’d think after a couple lazy weeks in the kitchen and a long holiday weekend I’d be all recharged and ready to kick some culinary ass. But not so much.
I did attempt to bake sandwich bread yesterday in an effort to stay out of the grocery store. But I was out of AP flour and 100% whole wheat bread has the density of a brick and the loaves were about as flat as one, too. It all worked out though because I sent Matt to the store and he picked up ice cream, too. (Read: I sent him out for ice cream and remembered the bread as he was in the check-out.)
I also bought a $10 free range chicken at Trader Joes and roasted it last night but once I saw the mess from roasting said chicken, I began regretting it. Although I do have to admit it was pretty delicious. I love me some crispy chicken skin and you just can’t get that from the crock pot.
And I still have that applesauce to make and celery to process for the freezer. Plus we’re about out of yogurt, so I guess I better get to work.
Funny how those three tasks are so simple but I. Just. Can’t. Make. My. Self. Do. It. If only I had someone who cleaned up after me. I’m sure that’s what is stifling my culinary genius.
We do have quite a few leftovers currently in the fridge and some things in the freezer to eat through, so it’s going to be another easy week at Chez DMB.

What do you do when you’ve lost your kitchen mojo?
