I am bored! Nothing sounds great to eat, I just want something fresh and taste! I am tired of my bulk comfort food. I am not saying comfort food has to be boring, I just have managed to make it that way. I just have gotten a little lazy in my cooking from scratch. So I needed inspiration and I got it. I have been watching Rick Bayless, Mexico: One plate at a Time on the Create Chanel. (Alright, my frugal friends, this is not a cable channel, it is a free PBS channel; thanks to the wonders of the digital converter box.)

So I went to the library, yes, I am too impatient and cheap to buy the book. I am a want it now, kinds of gal. I grabbed the only book they had on the shelf (did I tell you I have been druelling when I watch his show?) and went home to make THE LIST. I am very excited about have the simple pleasure of allowing fresh food to intoxicate my taste buds once again. It seems this whole motherhood bit has caused me to get a bit lazy in my preparation and menu planing for food. So here is the cookbook I got.
I sat down with it and went over each recipes and the ingredients that it requires. I did omit the fishes, mostly because it is not in my budget to buy and I am unsure what the cost would be to take on this taste adventure. I omited the salad dressings, mostly because I have a fridge full of them. I looked for easy to prepare food that could be appealing for my family. So I made my menu out for the week. Yes! I am making a week of mexican food, but why not, I got the book, lets put it to some use. Besides, like a typical 12 year old would say, I ammmmm sooooo bored! with my food. Atleast this week it is about to be different.
So a shopping I will go, hi ho the grocery store a shopping I will go.
I will let you know how this goes!
