The Government Didn't Shut Down...

...but my motivation did! Sorry folks!

I'm sure you all know the feeling I've been having these past couple of weeks... You get home after a long day at work, having run a number of errands on the way home, and the last thing you want to do is dream up what to cook that evening. Times like these are why frozen pizza is a multi-billion-dollar industry!

(For the record, I find the best frozen pizza to be Freschetta Rising Crust cheese pizza.)

This day-in, day-out tedium of eating to survive (not to enjoy) is a rut we all fall in to at some point. I'm sure even Ina Garten (love her) orders Chinese delivery every now and again. However, there will always be something to break us out of our food shell.

For me, this week, that something is the upcoming Easter holiday. For you, it may have been Passover. Or the weather getting warm enough to grill again. Perhaps you saw some amazing looking artisanal cheese when your local farmer's market started back up. What ever it is, run with it! Spring is a time of delicious ingredients, a time for the return of fresh fruits and vegetables to the table. Let the food inspire you!

Like I said above, the coming Easter holiday has knocked me back in to food mode. Unlike many years, when I travel to see extended family, this year they are coming to me! Obviously, I've been fantasizing about this meal since January.

Over the next couple days, I'll be posting recipes that I will be making, or those that came in a close second to the final choices. I hope you all enjoy them!
