I think it is too. It gets me out of my food rut. I use recipe sites like allrecipes, sparkpeople recipes to find recipes with the ingredients I have!
I will often go through my pantry and freezer, plug in the ingredients I find there and find a recipe in which I either don't need to buy any ingredients or have to buy very few--stretching the food dollars. Its a beautiful thing.
Definition of insanity: doing the same thing over and over expecting different results
