Digging out of a food rut.

I’m using these ingredients, ass suggested by Jimmy John’s Owner to dig out of my food rut:






The kitchen has been a lonely place in the Food Geek household lately. Lately, instead of creating masterpieces in the kitchen, I’m eating fast food, fish tacos, Mexican food, and whatever else I can find that is cheap and fast. I’ve been in a food rut. There’s only one way out, start cooking, STAT!

Tonight I whipped up a quick pasta carbonara. Interestingly enough, I’ve never made or tasted this dish before. It has all the right ingredients in it to make the dish fast and tasty. Maybe all that bacon will help me get out of this food rut.

Seeing my mood, there wasn’t much of a recipe here, but I’ll give you something quick.

  • Get the pot on for some pasta
  • Cook bacon until almost done
  • Add some garlic if you want
  • Cook pasta until just about done
  • Grate some cheese into a bowl, add two eggs, and mix it up
  • Drain pasta and add to bacony goodnees.
  • Remove from head, stir in egg mix and parsley
  • Eat your way out of a food rut

    I’m not much of a pasta person – but I respect wanting to get out of the food rut.

    This afternoon I was looking through a cookbook that comes from a restaurant in the uber-foodie region of Napa Valley. I realized that a lot of the ingredients to make some of the dishes I just didn’t have in my pantry. Where’s the champagne vinegar? All I have in my lowly kitchen is apple cider vinegar, rice vinegar, white vinegar, red wine vinegar and balsamic vinegar. Where’s the truffle oil? I have olive oil, canola oil, coconut oil and walnut oil. That’s it.

    If I really was going to make some of these recipes I’d have to go over to “Whole Paycheck” and stock up on stuff I’d probably only use once and then not again. Sigh…. guess it was nice looking at the pictures anyway.
