I have to admit over the last couple of months I have fallen into a bit of a foodie rut whereby instead of trying new dishes I am sticking to old favourites and dishes I know are going to be crowd pleasers.
@foodblog mentioned in one of her tweets about having a ‘To cook’ list and that got me thinking……
I love a good ‘to do’ list, I think it has something to do with the feeling you get when you can cross things off, so a ‘To cook’ list of everything I would love to cook would really get me inspired.
At first I did not know where to start with this. I went to the cupboard and dragged out all the back issues I have of my favourite foodie magazines.
My initial idea was to start cutting out recipes but about ten magazines in I knew that that was not going to work (I am a hoarder by heart; I get it from my grandma).
The dishes that I have shortlisted are not necessarily hard or pretentious, to get on the list the recipe it just had to catch my eye as something that I and my friends would enjoy eating (something that we would be able to give the ‘Reallynicefood’ stamp to).
The big find for me has to be all the vegetarian dishes I discovered as it is an area of cooking that I don’t venture into enough.
Anyway, now I am in the process of compileing my ultimate ‘To cook list’ so, if you have any dishes you think should be on there, send me a tweet. I have to admit I cant wait to start cooking !
Once the list is compiled, I will upload it onto my blog and keep you updated on my progress.
Wish me luck !
