Menu Plan Monday May 5th

Leave a comment

Happy Cinco de Mayo everyone!
I would like to tell you I have a fun Cinco de Mayo menu planned for tonight, but I don’t.

I kinda forgot about it when I was menu planning and since I have already been to the store, it is too late to change it.  Plus we just had Mexican food….

I am feeling in a cooking rut lately and I am having a difficult time coming up with dinners.  Between Pinterest and my Plan2Eat menu planner/recipe book, I have tons of options, I just can’t seem to decide what to cook.

You might not know it, but I don’t really like food.  There are somethings I can enjoy eating, but I would prefer not to eat.  This has nothing to do with calories or weight gain or anything like that.  I just don’t really like food, or the whole eating process, but I do like to cook.

So sometimes it gets hard to cook, because I don’t take pleasure in the eating, everything becomes a chore.

At least I know it will pass and I will once again enjoy cooking and menu planning.

Just so you know, it took a lot of effort to make sure this week’s menu wasn’t entirely made up of recipes involving Parmesan cheese.
