Does anyone ever get tired of cooking and/or fixing meals?

I used to love to cook, bake and prepare food. I don't know what's got into me, but I almost dread it now. Anyone else feel like that?

  • Yes I do, I am so tired after chasing a toddler all day and being pregnant that making food and even eating sounds awful

  • I feel like that too.... I used to love to cook. For me its more the clean up part though! I hate having to do everything all the time (single mom of 3 young kids)

  • I do. I think it's because I can cook for 30 to 45 minutes and the food's GONE in 10, with not one thank you or compliment. I feel that my efforts are unappreciated and at that point cooking becomes just one more chore, especially trying to do it with kids underfoot.

    What I've done is search for new recipes. Cooking (and eating) the same old thing gets BORING. I try to plan at least one new recipe a week. Today we had peanut chicken MMMMM!

  • How bout a crock pot? You can fix all sorts of dishs in there. They even have plastic bag things now that you put inside the crock pot to keep food from sticking to it,,,way less clean up time!
