I have, of late, kind of forgotten that I'm a good cook. I haven't been in the mood to cook much, and so I've been eating out a lot and making low-effort meals like cereal or bread and cheese or the like, which is really more like assembly than cooking in most cases.

Tonight, though, I came home and was in such a good mood that somehow, the thought of cooking didn't seem so daunting, and I didn't want to go out, even to buy ingredients, so I threw together something from what was in the pantry and freezer. And you know what? It was awesome. Beyond awesome, actually, thanks to a last minute inspiration. And it was easy, and now I have left-overs for lunch for the rest of the week. THIS is why I like cooking! Why have I not been doing it??

Happily, I have a social cooking date tomorrow evening, too. Because life is just that good.
