I'm in a cooking rut.
 
For the past couple of months it seems I haven't been able to muster any real creativity in the kitchen... I've been off the fresh fruits and veggies... been eating out more and, when I do eat in, it's something like frozen chicken nuggets or some other 'easy fix'.

My health is fine. Maybe I just need some kind of creative shot in the arm. I'm not lazy and I do cook well...

Does anyone else get into cooking ruts? Any ideas on how to break out?

I get that way too. I get back into it when I find recipes that I haven't tried or ones that are just a little off from ones that I really like.

Buy a big bag of ice, some fresh fruit and go crazy with your blender.

I'm thinking I might need to schedule a party or something to kick myself in the pants.

That would be fun, Z. But, I'm too far away!!:lol:

Sounds festive.... I'm listening... (and I like tex's idea to add a little adult beverage to it)

Ah! That's it! Check the appetizer forum and plan on making 4 different ones. Then, invite your friends for poker night (or movie night or whatever).

Usually works for me, too.... That's why I think I need 'extra' help this time.
