My point is I have been cooking, baking, preparing MORE at home and what I realize is that it makes a big mess. My dishwasher is filled to the brim AND I always have some big bowl, pot or pan sitting there soaking.
I just made a chicken pasta dish and used half of the chicken to make a chicken salad. It feels very good to make something and prepare something for the next day. Today worked out but somedays when I am doing it, I HATE it. I hate the mess, I hate that the meal I made might taste like crap, I hate that if I didn't plan ahead the meat was too frozen and didn't cook well. AND some days I am just exhausted and when I see that sink full of dirty crap it makes me pissy.
I am realizing that it is all about PREPARING !!! If I remember to take the meat out of freezer, if I remember to have all the ingredients, if I give myself enough time to cook, and freezing or prepping for the night where I don't have the time. Life is better. BUT it seems so disciplined.
What about you ? How disciplined are you ? does it help ?
