Trying to get motivated
Thursday, September 05, 2013
I have a lot of stuff to do around the house but I feel limp and tired. I have to go empty the dishwasher and put laundry away. How much this is physical and how much is emotional, I don't know.
I'm taking a page from Rachael Ray and doing some big-batch cooking today and this weekend. Tonight I'm making Italian sausage and mushroom spaghetti sauce. Saturday I'm making a batch of my favorite soup. It's from an old Sunset Magazine recipe. It has Italian sausage (yes, I do like Italian sausage), butternut squash, hominy and other veggies cooked in chicken broth. The hominy gives the broth a gorgeous, rich corn taste. Pictures below:
Sometime this weekend I need to renew my apartment lease. If I renew by Monday my increase will only be $50 a month, which is far less than it could be. I have a hard time I've lived here over four years now.
Time for lunch and to get the sauce on.
