Inspiration is back!
I'm making a peach pie this afternoon.
About an hour after I posted my blah post I turned on the TV to keep me company as I did a little housework. Lo - I found Ina Garten - the Barefoot Contessa on the Food Network. And Rachael Ray! I was so excited. I have missed watching both of them. I love Paula Deen too but I can't find her yet.
It may seem like a small thing to most of you but I absolutely love to cook (good thing Fen loves to eat). I haven't been really inspired to get back into experimental cooking of late - I've just been making the same old stuff: lasagna, steaks, chicken in a various forms, etc. Nothing fancy.
Just half an hour of Ina and I was pulling out the cookbooks with wide eyes, eager to create something more difficult than a basic stuffed chicken. We're having folks over for dinner tonight and I'm going to cook up a little something exciting. I'll let you know how it goes down. I love Ina's tomato tarts. I used to make them all the time but haven't in ages and ages. Maybe I'll make them as an appetizer. Hmmmmm... so much to consider.
As I said yesterday, I'm starting to feel at home more - the inspiration is coming. Thank God, again!!!
Back to baking my peach pie....,
