I hate cooking with such a passion, I think I would literally starve myself if I was single!!!

I like cooking for other people, making something they'll enjoy. When it's just for myself, it's sustenance and I have a hard time bringing myself to care.

I like doing 'special' dinners etc. I just get bored of the mundane everyday stuff. I find it hard to stay inspired, and 2 of my kids are horrendously picky eaters which makes it even harder!

Yeah, I know what you mean. I can cook well, but because I've always been on a limited budget, I haven't really branched out much. I want to, but I can't.

Ugh, I'm going to have to get up and start preparing dinner now if I intend to eat it during the news. I'd order in if that didn't, you know, cost money.

take away is a forgotten joy in this house. the closest i get is the odd bbq chook and coleslaw from the supermarket, even that is like $15.00 or something , which is a huge cost, even if it lasts a couple days.

One of our mates is a homekill butcher...we're really lucky that we get a shit load of beautiful meat for a 1/2 the price we'd pay retail. Even so, I still can't get excited.

I'm in a cooking rut. My cake has sunk. My meats off. My veges wilted.

Your mention of picky eaters has inspired a tangent here from me:

I was a picky eater as a child. In fact, I'm still a picky eater to a degree now. But my mother encouraged me to be excited about food, to enjoy trying new things and different tastes and whatnot. So although I'm picky, I'll try just about anything once. However, one of my former friends was a horrendously picky eater whose mother catered to her every whim as a child. She was the kind of person who, at the age of 18, still ate the same meals on the same nights of the week as she had eaten when she was six (and was so unobservant that she was still surprised by what came each day and couldn't tell me what, for instance, was served on a Tuesday, just that it had been the same all her life). I had to have an argument with her to get her to try honey (honey!!). She had never prepared her own food at age 19, and although she would eat salami, she refused to touch it for months, until one day when I just refused to make her lunch unless she helped me for a change.

It remains one of the most pathetic things I've ever seen. Thank fuck I don't have to cook for her any more. It's one thing to be a picky eater, but I just couldn't believe someone ended up like that. Seriously, WTF?

I can get two pizzas delivered for like $20 and that would do dinner and about five breakfasts/lunches, but ... $20? Piss off.

FYI dinner is chicken sausages with curry rice and vegies, its fairly tolerable, with lashings of alcohol.
