The kitchen has been repainted, the shelves put up, a majority of the clutter gone, things put back neatly, and I'm back to cooking my own meals again. One more goal for this month done!
While I was in the middle of the kitchen painting, I stopped cooking. It was too difficult to do food prep and cook amongst all my debris (I'm not the tidiest of painters). If it wasn't microwaveable, it was not being cooked. Plus I ate lunch out a lot since I had no leftovers to bring to work. Laziness on my part as well, I don't deny that at all.
I did a mini food shop yesterday, cooked dinner last night, have leftovers for tomorrows lunch, made a quiche for dinner tonight (unless I end up going out with freinds) and spent some time getting my mindset back into a make your food mood. Over coffee break this morning I read the store circulars and it looks like it's going to be a soup, salad, pasta and pork week. The local grocery store has pork tenderloin on sale and one of those babies will make three meals.
Right now there is something very soothing getting back into a domestice routine.
