January is almost over… let’s collectively breathe a sigh of relief. It’s a tough month to go through, what with the foul weather, short daylight, bleak landscapes, etc.
My cooking creativity is waning under these conditions. I’m losing my cooking mojo, gasp!
No, no, no… I’m just being dramatic. I hope that’ll never happen. But it does feel like I’m in a little bit of a cooking rut.
Lately, all I’ve managed to make are standard, and occasionally sub-standard (gasp!), soups and stews.
The husband doesn’t complain – he’s not a complainer – but I feel bad about it.
Last night’s chicken cacciatore was pretty good, though.
It almost makes up for the sub-standard stuff. Still, I’ll be glad when February arrives. It’s a short month, and then before we know it, spring will be here! Spring will awaken my cooking mojo!
And now, a few things to help awaken your cooking mojo
“These sushi cups are brilliant! There’s no learning curve here; anybody should be able to make them. Even for those who are more than slightly challenged in sushi-making (ahem, that would be me!) — Angie
“I’ll be darned… I’ve never seen upside-down cornbread before, at least not with onions. How intriguing!” — Angie
“Easy to make, but elegant. Will surely be a crowd-pleaser.” — Jhuls
“I love this idea, there’s plenty of flavors in one bread. Such nice party food, too!” — Jhuls
