Kitchen Rut

May 1, 2006

Anthony and I have been in a little bit of a rut. A kitchen/food rut. We are normally super hero’s when it comes to whipping up something especially tasty and quick, but everything started to taste the same.

It really started with the change of the seasons. It wasn’t limited to our cooking, we couldn’t even find restaurants we were satisfied with . Dark beer no longer satisfied, heavy meals didn’t fill the right way and not eating always sounded like the easiest, best option. We ended up eating a lot of cheese, bread, fruit and fresh veg for a few days. All the uncooked, no preparation kind of stuff.

Luckily this weekend we broke our change of season rut. I pulled out some pork chops from the freezer and sent Anthony to the kitchen. The first night he made cranberry, onion, chipotle pork chops. The next night we combined efforts to create a marinade of honey, mustard and apple cider vinegar. Both were wonderfully tasty and I feel like I can take over the kitchen again.

    I totally know what you’re talking about! Kat and I are normally able to throw together a relatively decent meal from whatever is in our fridge, but lately we have been unable to work up the motivation. Eating out wasn’t even satisfying. But we switched it up and started eating raw, just fruits and veggies (maybe some salad dressing) for a couple days and soon we were starting to make entirely new meals that satisfied our shifting tastes.

    Those marinades sound dank, by the way.

    Its good to hear that we aren’t the only ones. So far the rut has completely left. Cooking is going to be so much easier when we get into the house. We won’t have to remember trasporting food every evening for the dinner. It will all just be in one place.
