I’m an Impatient Cook…

Happy Wednesday!

I have been avoiding the kitchen A LOT lately!  Mainly because I haven’t felt the desire to cook, but I’m missing my creative outlet…ie…Cooking.  It allows me to create and satisfy others at the same time…what could be better?

I find that now that I’m returning to the Kitchen…I am very impatient.  I am an impatient cook.  Just like everything else in life…I want my dinner done NOW. So I’m noticing that I put the heat too high, or I don’t allow enough cooking time.  I have to learn to be more patient in the kitchen.

Our meal planning system is still only so-so.  We really need a list of meals we cook on a regular basis and we need it posted on the fridge.  That way grocery day (Now Wednesday) is easy!  Easy is good after a long day at work 🙂 I just got the list started by adding dishes that we cook using ground beef.  I can also note flavors, spices, or dishes that we don’t like, so I have a quick reminder of what new dishes to stay away from.


Ground beef~

  • Spaghetti & meat sauce
  • Burgers
  • Tacos
  • Meatloaf

So what am I making tonight?  My Pa’s famous meatloaf recipe with a couple of extra ingredients:  garlic and worcestershire sauce.  I’m not making just one…I’m making two 🙂  We are having company and one wasn’t going to be enough.  The meatloaf is in the oven and will be ready in an hour.  I am looking forward to tasting the results, and what I need to do is sit back, be patient, and enjoy my Beer….

    hrmmmmm food! 🙂 I am impatient in the kitchen too… LOL usually its with baking though. I want brownies NOW! 🙂

    We need to start looking at quick and easy meals too that are good for you, when I get home its already so late, the last thing I want to do is cook. If you have any tips for quick and easy chicken ideas let me know! I love chicken and I am getting tired of chicken stir fry LOL

    • Haha…My brownies from the other night were awesome!! I made popcorn too…I was in a sweet & salty mood…hehe.

      That’s pretty much what works for us too: quick, easy, and good for you.

      I will keep you posted on the new recipes I try that fit that criteria. I try to cook a mixture of ground beef, turkey, chicken, and steak 🙂 Check out Martha Stewart’s website too…I love her recipes.
