The Simple Cook

Pinterest is driving me insane.

Seriously.

Between the food artistry “pinned” and available for anytime viewing and the large variety of food blogs at my disposal – I’m going nuts.

I believe in food.

I mean… I really do love food.

But there is something about having to get dinner on the table every night that takes my food level involvement to a point of saturation.

And that doesn’t include breakfast, lunch, and in-between snacks.

I know what some of you are thinking: meal planning is the answer to all my woes. I’ve done that too, and let me tell you, after awhile… even the planning can get monotonous.

Yes. I want to feed my family well.

Yes. I want to keep them showing up to the table in anticipation of what’s-for-dinner.

Yes. I want to give the people I love food to eat that’s good to them and good for them.

But can I just say what I’m sure I’m not the only one thinking? Mealtime can be an ongoing, overwhelming and inescapable responsibility.

So I’ve made a decision: I’m keeping it simple. At least for awhile… I’m taking the easy road.

Spaghetti, salad, toast (the toaster kind not the fancy garlic bread)

Beans and rice.

Stuff like that.

Why?

Because a simple non-stressed mom is better than a gourmet stressed-out mom.
