I've been in something of a slump since I got back from Austin. I haven't really felt much like cooking, and I haven't had much inspiration. It's been harder getting back into the routine of going to work every day than it ever was before, even though I like my job and I like going to work. I suppose I'll get back into the swing of things next week now that all of the holidays are over. And I always love to cook in winter, when I can really crank up the oven and let all those warm wonderful smells blanket the apartment.
Walking home from work Friday I stopped at the grocery store with the hope that I would find some inspiration, but it was so crowded I just left the few things I had picked up and wandered down to Treasure Island instead. Nothing appealed, until I wandered by the deli and thought to ask if they had any Best's Kosher Salami. They did, so I bought some, along with some dark Polish rye bread and mesquite barbecue-flavored potato chips.
It might not have been home cooking, but it was mighty tasty and went down marvelously with a nice cold glass of milk.
I stopped at the Big Apple Market on the way home from the knitting store today, where I did find some inspiration. I've got something planned for tomorrow. I hope I feel like making it.
