I Forgot I Needed To Remember That Recipe


(What's this called again??)

I have a condition called recipe amnesia.

If I stop making a dish, mostly because I'm sick of it and feel I'm getting in a rut, I will forget it. It never existed.... Call it an existential food crisis...

And then the following scene will eventually happen:
Hubby:  Why don't you make that dish anymore?
Me:  Blink, Blink
Hubby:  You know that dish???
Me: ?????
Hubby: I really liked it with the ____ and the ____
Me:  Hey have some of these chocolate cookies I just made...

And scene...

This is why I have a food journal...Most people have a food journal to reduce calorie intake and track what they are eating....My journal probably packs more calories into my diet because the best recipes are never the ones that have few calories....

I go through periods where I will write everything in it and then there are periods of nothing....Did cooking happen? Were cakes baked? Who knows...

Maybe that's why I started a blog..

But I can't remember.

Asian Carrot Slaw
1/4 cup mayonnaise
2 tbsp Sriracha
Juice of 1 lemon
1 bag of shredded carrots

Mix Mayonnaise, Sriracha and lemon juice together in a mixing bowl. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Add Carrots on top (if you aren't serving right away leave the carrots unmixed until you are ready. It will prevent them from getting soggy) Mix and top with poppy seeds as a garnish.

  1. Whatever that is looks scrumptious to me--carrots, right? I love carrots and I keep food journals also. Sometimes when I get in a rut, I'll think, "what did I make last year?" Voila, I can look it up.
