Brainpower Lapse

So, you know a couple of weeks ago, when I wrote about planning meals for the week?

I seem to have lost that ability today. I cannot come up with a single idea as to what we should eat this week, or even tonight.

I usually plan meals on Friday night(yes, my life is just that exciting, aren't you jealous? You know you are!) or Saturday so that we can go grocery shopping on Sunday and buy everything we need for the week. This past weekend we were out of town, and any free time I had was spent being crabby and sick, so I didn't plan meals or shop. Last night we were out car shopping (no news yet) and didn't get home until about 8 pm, so I didn't plan then.

I thought I'd do it today. I like to have a plan so that things are all neat and orderly and I don't have to worry about it because I've already taken care of everything.

Unfortunately my mind is not working and I can't seem to think of anything to make, let alone figure out when the hell I'm going to make it to the grocery store. I don't even know what we're having tonight, and that never happens. I always know what we're having at least a day ahead of time. I'm starting to freak out a little. I don't know if I'm having trouble because the medicine I'm currently on completely kills my appetite and therefore no food really sounds good because I just don't feel like eating, or if I'm just having one large brain fart today.

My brain, she just ain't working. And that's no good.

Here's hoping that I come up with something soon, otherwise Aaron may just starve tonight, and I really don't want to do that to him.

How about this tonight:
It's easy but delicious.

in the past week i have made pot roast (for the first time ever and it was goooood), shepherd's pie and chili. meat much? i think i had a hankering for comfort foods. plus, my housemate and i can have lunches from the left overs for a couple days. and then i get so sick of it i can't stand to think of chili for at least a month.

i vote for take out. you deserve a break being sick and all.

Eh, as long as there is PB&J in the house, he won't starve!

Sounds like a great night for take-out :o)

If I get too bored with the same old thing, I'll go to recipe.com for some inspiration. Or I just go buy a whole roaster chicken and decide what to do with it when I get home. The possibilities are endless. Soup, chicken fajitas, roasted chicken, chicken jambalaya, stir fry....

Swedish meatballs are usually a big hit over this way and it's an inexpensive, relatively easy meal to make.

Or, you could hit a drive through.

Good luck!

(Oh, and I picked up Jen's book today, so I won't be cooking. :)
