(Un-)Inspired Food Choices

I'm just not feeling it today.  It could be that having my tooth removed yesterday (don't feel bad I didn't tell you, I didn't even tell myself until I was already in the chair) has dulled my appetite.  Or it could be the frugal miserly side of myself rearing her ugly head and demanding that no more monies be spent.  Or, heck, it could be pure laziness; I doubt it, but it's possible.

Either way, I'm not feeling like menu planning/grocery shopping/cooking much of anything at all.  Two things I am on board with are these:

Mac-n-Cheese Wedding Cups

and these:

No-Bake Cookies

But that hardly constitutes a balanced diet.  Doesn't mean I'm not going to make them this very afternoon before I go grocery shopping, but it does mean my Mom would be ticked if that was all I fed my family for the remainder of the week.  Especially Duke, she's concerned about him.

So I turn to the place where all of inspiration happens.  The place where dreams are given a picture, and where ideas are shared freely and with encouragement: Pinterest.  Here's what I've come up with:

Slow Cooker Lime Chicken Tacos

Mozzarella Sticks

Spiced Chipotle Honey Chicken with Sweet Potatoes

Honey Mustard Bacon Chicken Tenders

3-cheese Chicken Alfredo Bake
Alrighty then.  No, I'm no closer to actually having a menu, and no, I'm not even ready to grocery shop, but now, NOW I feel inspired.  I think I'm going to go make those mac-n-cheese cups now.  Because on top of being inspired, I'm also hungry.

We only have pictures of food,


  1. I think everyone has those uninspired days sometimes, and it's okay to not feel guilty about it. Enjoy those mac-n-cheese cups & no-bake cookies. They look yummy!

    Rest up, and be inspired another day! I know you will!

  2. @KyFireWife,

    Well now who's being the encouraging one?? Thank you for your sweet words! I think I'm on my way out of my funk... perhaps a little more pinterest :) Have a great weekend!
