Cooking. I love cooking. But cooking is an energy sucker.
You find a great recipe. Read it. Convince yourself you can do it.
Try making the recipe. It takes much longer than the time frame indicated on the recipe.
Because you have to follow the directions the first go around. Once you’ve become familiar with the recipe, you can tweak it until it works for you.
That happened to me last night. That’s why this post didn’t get written on Wednesday, I had zero energy left.
My Instagram friends saw what we ate for dinner. Did you see, too?
