Tell me I'm not the only one that goes in phases when it comes to cooking. Sometimes I find time to plan an entire month's worth of dinners at once. Other times, I have no idea what to fix, no desire to go to the store and can barely find the energy to cook. I just can't seem to keep it together on a regular basis. Coming up with meal ideas is the WORST!
With both kids away at college, I'm in one of my organized phases because I'm looking forward to trying out some of the recipes the kids would never eat. (Keep in mind, it's only been three days since they left. We'll see how long the organized phase lasts this time.)
It's also nice not to have to cook a full meal sometimes. These homemade soft pretzels with cheese sauce were just enough for a light bite for two. And, they aren't as hard to make as you would think.
If you would like to give them a try, you can find the recipes here:
