Perhaps it's because we've been a bit under the weather around here, but I'm feeling rather uninspired in the kitchen these days. I've been getting less sleep thanks to that crazy little man of mine, and all the sleepiness makes me want to crawl onto the couch with a warm blanket and a cup of hot cocoa. Not make dinner.
And then trying to be creative and budget-wise. It's just feeling a bit more like a chore than I'd like. Perhaps I'm also feeling a bit sorry for myself because we've just started watching Mad Men, and I just can't get over how beautiful Betty keeps her house clean, her kids looking just as beautiful as she and the meals hitting the table. She is in therapy, though, right?
This week I cooked a pot of beans, and now we're playing the how-many-meals-can-be-based-on-beans game. Don't tell Seth. I'm hoping he won't notice.
Until next week, send me your quick and easy dinner recipes. Please. I can't even keep my kid and house clean, so dinner will sink without some inspiration.
