Well, I'm not actually in the rain, but as I type it's raining outside.

This week is going so slow. Does anyone else feel that way?
Maybe it's because I haven't seen much of The Mister this week. I am missing him.
Maybe it's because sleep hasn't come so easily in the last couple of weeks, which makes the days feel longer.
Who knows, but whatever it is, I cannot believe it's only Wednesday!
I've been in a bloggers slump recently. Not sure why.
I hope it doesn't last as long as my cooking slump.
Have a mentioned I have been in a cooking slump? It's not a rut. Well, on second thought, it might be that too. I've been in this slump/rut for a long time now. Maybe even as long as a year.
Anyway, I used to be super organized about meal planning, and shopping, and yadda, yadda, yadda, and somehow, it just stopped.
Now I just buy a big bag of Costco frozen chicken and use the same four recipes over and over in a mix and match type style with carbs and veggies, and the same old salad. It's boring, but it's what's for dinner.
My kids have been complaining about this rut for a very long time now.
The Mister never complains about what I cook for the family. Even when it's not my best, he eats it happily.
That is a quality I love so much about him.
I could feed him saltines with peanut butter for the next twenty years and he'd be fine. He has many talents and abilities, but he can't cook, so he's grateful to eat what I fix.
When I was talking to him about my cooking rut he offered to get me a subscription to Cooking Light for some inspiration. He knows I love that magazine.
Have a mentioned lately how cute The Mister is?
Back to the rut. What do you do in a cooking rut? Do you ride it out and hope for better days? How do you find motivation to get back in the kitchen groove?
OK, that's enough thinking in the rain...
