Take a Much Needed Cooking Vacation...Just Don't Make it Permanent
You may or may not have noticed the lack of postings on my blog last week. I was on vacation with my family. We spent the week in the Muskoka region of Ontario having fun despite the lack of sun.
This wasn’t only a vacation from work but it also turned out to be a break from cooking. Many of the meals we enjoyed were made by others. We dined on cannelloni, beef kabobs, various pasta dishes and a few hamburgers thrown in for good measure.
The trick to taking a vacation from cooking is to not make it permanent because you don’t want to get stuck in a rut relying on expensive and often fattening conveyor-belt meals.
Think of the best meals you had on your vacation and let those thoughts inspire you to replicate them or create some new flavorful dishes of your own!
