Bad Mojo: How Do You Deal with a Cooking Rut?
Normally, I just shake it off. If you cook every day, you’re bound to get a few whoopsies in there every now and again. To re-energize, I’ll do things like take myself to the farmers market, flip through old cookbooks that I’ve been neglecting, or take myself out to dinner at a fun new restaurant.
But this just seems like one thing after the next, and I’m feeling seriously low. My gut feeling is that I need to take a break. Just step away from the stove, ma’am! Not a forever kind of break, but maybe a day or two of just not forcing it. Or as Dana would say, fallow time.
What do you do when you’re in a rut?
