I have a million and one excuses as to why I haven’t posted in *gasp* over a month. I’m sure you don’t want to hear them, but I’m going to tell you anyway:
- Hubby got a new job (okay that was in August – lame excuse)
- Day job has been uber, uber busy and leaving me exhausted at night (this one is for real)
- We have a toddler (that really is an excuse in itself, right?)
- Said toddler has been going through a tantrum stage
- Said toddler has also been cutting 2-year-old molars
- Said toddler has also needed ear tubes for the last 8 months, and is finally going to be getting them, so we’ve been going back and forth to doctor’s, specialist’s, and allergist’s appointments
- My site crashed. For real. That one was pretty bad. One day – POOF! – all the content was gone. Not cool.
I haven’t been cooking for all the afore-mentioned reasons (even hubby getting a new job…we’re still adjusting to his schedule!), and it’s pretty hard to post recipes when you have been living off of KD and Mr. Noodle bowls. Unless you’d like step-by-step instructions on how to make KD?
But probably the biggest excuse of all?
Sometimes I get in these ruts. Even though I love to cook and the kitchen is where my heart is, there are times when I feel uninspired and out of ideas. I even had to ask for supper suggestions tonight.
Fortunately for you, I have so many friends who write cooking blogs, and they’re not stuck in a rut right now. So this is my peace offering: a collection of recipes from some great websites, which will hopefully help give YOU some inspiration!
