Spicing it up.
After eating the most deliciously spiced fake meat ever (made by “Mr.” Hit By A Pitch) the other night, and then eating bland boring food the next few nights, it hit me.
Somewhere in the past few months, I lost excitement in cooking and in eating. Nothing I made for dinner seemed appetizing, seemed worth gobbling. More often than I would like to admit, I turned to the sandwich fixings meant for lunches or even Greek yogurt with fruit or granola instead of chicken in the freezer or steak in the fridge.
Armed with a 20% off coupon to the local spice shop given to me by a co-worker, I went a little wild tonight buying a few blends that should inspire some adventurous cooking and eating. Taco seasoning, garlic salt, Hungarian paprika, and a Moroccan spice mixture all bring delicious ideas to the forefront of my mind.
I can’t wait to start cooking again…though I think the empty fridge and freezer need a good restock before I can share what goodness I am concocting.
