Not hungry

Don’t I sound like a little kid?  After being AWOL for over a month, you would think I would have more fun things to report than my lack of appetite for the last few weeks.  Sadly, this is the truth.  I go through these phases where I’m not hungry and barely eat.  The problem is that with the way I eat, this means that I actually don’t eat unless I can find some motivation to cook.  Well, as you probably already guessed, I haven’t been much in the mood for cooking either.  If you know me at all, you know that I survived the last few weeks on eggs.  Yup, easy to make and easy to eat, that’s pretty much all I’ve been eating.

I sort of found my appetite over dinner on Friday with some friends, but then yesterday, I ended up making chocolate muffins (of the primal variety) because I didn’t feel like washing vegetables.  I think vegetable washing is my nemesis, especially when it gets cold.  Just the idea of water and cold vegetables from the fridge…shiver!

I did manage to cook myself a decent meal tonight using pork loin from my freezer to make Spiced Pork and Butternut Squash with Sage from Mark’s Daily Apple.  So maybe my inclination to cook and eat is slowly coming back.  My theory is that between the cold and the stress I’ve been under lately, I’m feeling the urge to hibernate rather than cook and feed myself.

We had a rare warm day today, but we’re heading back down the thermometer as I write this post.  I needed more of a transition from summer to fall, but we’re almost to Halloween and I don’t think there is any turning back.  Hopefully, the snow can hold off for a good long while.

All right, that’s all for now.  I’ll try and get some photos and other posts up here soon.  After all, I did get a new phone and should be able to make some magic happen…in theory.
