I need to get back on track with my cooking…not cooking is making me crazy!

Juggling these two internships while finding motivation to cook is STILL a challenge.  Mind you my frequent trips to Trader Joes and Whole Foods have only provided minor inspiration.  I recently bought freshly made pasta (well, I don’t really know if Trader Joes made it themselves but it wasn’t dry pasta for that matter).  In particular I bought pesto filled Tortellini and ricotta and spinach Ravioli.  I created a few easy dishes here and there but I am really feeling the urge to make some with a WOW factor.  I want to try a 3 course dinner: appetizer, entree and dessert.   [Pictured here is Trader Joes Spinach & Ricotta Ravioli with Morningstar Vegetarian Sausage sauteed in garlic and sage…it was simple and delicious…I was just sad I finished it so quickly]

Right now…the only thing that seems to motivate me to cook is because I really NEED to eat something.  The whole working 10 to 6/9 to 5 really drains the body.  The commute home adds to the exhaustion and finding the ingredients in my currently messy home (which is in the process of being “renovated” so to speak) is insanely difficult.  

I did purchase a rather helpful frozen product the other day: pre-made polenta with spinach and carrots.  I plan on making this tomorrow (God willing) with some sauteed vegetables and adding a bit of goat cheese to the polenta.  Since it is rainy weather something porridge and comforting is definitely what the doctor ordered.
