More cooking

I quite shocked myself this evening by both eating leftovers from the other night and also whipping up a banana smoothie to go with it. I asked for a hand held blender for my birthday this year and even got a recipe book so that I could make smoothies. I thought this would be a great way of getting more protein and also eating more fruit and so on for good health. And then, like many of my such ideas, it fell by the wayside.

I think it was a combination of pulling the blender out yesterday to make the muffins (I don't have a food processor) and realising how easy it is to clean, as well as leaving it out AND having the right ingredients in the fridge that made this so easy. I'm still really enjoying being creative about using up all the perishables in the fridge before they perish (something I couldn't do during the OCD years). I had some yoghurt leftover, fresh milk and some bananas looking to ripen. I added vanilla and some honey and it was awesome! I am addicted.

Lots of thinking through what I should be ordering/buying in my weekly groceries so as to actually enjoy cooking and make things that I will actually eat that are also good for me.

It's an interesting exercise.
