I didn't work yesterday or today. This was my first 2 days off in a row since Thanksgiving. And I don't have to work tomorrow; only a few hours on Monday; and not at all on Tuesday. By the time Wednesday rolls around I might forget how to get to work.
One thing that sucks about cooking food for a living is that it drains most of my motivation to cook at home. Especially the type of cooking I do at work where I get to create everything that I cook. By the time I get home the thought of creating a nice dinner based on ingredients that I have in the fridge is dreadful so I opt for simplicity more often than not. In the past several months we've eaten way too many dinners of frozen ravioli, quickly thrown together fajitas or burritos, and frozen veggie burgers.
Today was different though. I got home from 4+ hours of training and only had 45 minutes before Jill would be here on her dinner break, but I hadn't been to work in 48 hours and I actually wanted to cook. Because of the short amount of time available I opted for a pretty simple Indian dinner of mung dal over basmati rice and vegetable pakoras with tamarind chutney. But dang, it was so nice to not be eating frozen ravioli again for dinner. And with the day off again tomorrow I'm already trying to decide what I should make for my next dinner.
Training totals for the week: Bike 35 miles; Ski 12 miles; Run 81 miles; 17.5 hours.
