Kitchen Time Out!
For the last two weeks, I've been out of my element... meaning, out of the kitchen. Sure, I've whipped up a few dinners here and there, but mostly relying on my crock pot to do the heavy lifting, while I take the credit. Normally, this would be okay with me, and I'd vow to spend the weekend baking bread in my bread maker, making special dinners to entertain weekend company, and planning for the meals for the upcoming week. This weekend, we've got so much going on, that I don't think I'll be reuniting with my kitchen until Monday. This separation does give me time to check out Pinterest, flip though cooking magazines, or my shelf of cookbooks for more challenging, new meal ideas that I haven't tried before, or inspire new ideas. So while I do feel a bit of anxiety about being away from my kitchen for so long, I can't say that it's not for the best.
