    Who's joining me in my effort to walk off some calories?

    Didn't I just finish a 2.33 mile walk?
    Now, aren't I sitting down with some "shrimp spaghetti with a kick" and some buttered parmesan French bread for lunch?

    😲 Doesn’t a meal like that make it sound like you’ve got your own personal chef or something??

    Who else would enjoy some Trader Joe's pumpkin bisque? Didn't I just have a bowl with a slice of their Tuscan Pane artisan bread? What's better than soup on a gloomy, rainy day?

    Not better, but isn't a bowl of chili with some cornbread also pretty good?

    Do you know I would actually consider that a tie?

    Do you know how funny it is for me to hear you say that? 😂
    I've never been much of a cook, but didn't I subscribe to Hello Fresh a while back, so I've had some meals delivered, with easy-to-follow recipes and packaged with nearly all the ingredients necessary?
    Isn't "Shrimp Spaghetti With A Kick" one of those meals?
    And how hard is it to put parmesan on buttered French bread and pop it under the broiler, keeping a very close eye on it so it gets golden brown and not burnt?
    (Isn't Hello Fresh more expensive than if I were to buy the ingredients myself, which I'll start doing now that I'm getting the hang of it?)

    How smart are you though, to use that to kick start your 'cheffing' abilities?

    Don't I recall enjoying a few evenings, while in England, on a rainy night, cozied up in front of a nice fire with a cup of hot cocoa, warming my hands?

    Isn't it going to drop into the 40s here tonight? Don't you think there may be hand-warming hot cocoa in my future?

    Isn't there one particular night in England that stands out in my memories, enjoying that fire and hot cocoa, with the sound of the rain being accompanied by the Grateful Dead's American Beauty album?
    Isn't Ripple one of my favorite songs of theirs, having incredible lyrics that include this:
    "Ripple in still water,
    When there is no pebble tossed
    nor wind to blow"?

    Can I get some credit for being that smart, too? Should I get less credit though considering it didn’t pan out the way I had planned and I’m still as bad as I’ve ever been at cooking despite my feeble attempts with HelloFresh and everything else?

    Are you selling yourself short?

    Haven't I kept the recipe cards for the meals I've liked that were easy enough? How hard will it be for me to buy the listed ingredients and repeat it? Beyond that, how hard can it be to do the same for a recipe from a cookbook?

    Or even recipes from the internet?

    Aren’t I teaching my son some one sheet pan dinners that are easy, healthy, and tasty? Isn’t clean up great when there is one bowl and one baking sheet used?
    A beginner cook knocked this one out of the park so why couldn’t you? 😉 s0bv109sl8ou.jpeg

    I'm lying here feeling exhausted and lazy from my job, you know what I mean? What can I do to motivate myself to take a walk?

    Don't you listen to some interesting music? Didn't listening to that lead me down an hour long YouTube rabbit hole about the origins of that song, Jerry Garcia and more?

    Didn’t all the talk of scones lead me to buy some this morning when I went out for a loaf of bread? 🤦‍♀️

    Didn't I have one sheet pan meal that might have been better had I not burned the broccoli? But doesn't that one look like one worth trying? 😋

    Wasn’t it hard to choose? But didn’t berry/white chocolate, double chocolate, and pumpkin win this time? I wonder why they didn’t have any savoury ones?
