It wasn't very tasty after all

So much for a potentially delicious new recipe. I was underwhelmed. It wasn't bad, by any means. It just wasn't anything particularly special. Oh well, we'll move on.

It has been an extraordinarily busy few weeks. I've had visitors for two long weekends in a row, had to try and squeeze all of my hours into three days two weeks running because of a bit of a brain fart on my part, have had a few last minute translations and proofreading jobs to fit in at the same time, and earlier this week I found out that my sister had an operation and will be fairly laid up until the end of January. My first instinct is to jump on a train but I haven't been able to talk to her yet. Maybe she'd prefer to be on her own with her husband and kids. We'll see. But it's all been just a lot over the last few weeks. I think I'm ready for a few quiet days.

Hah, you sound like me! Before I retired I was not very experimental with food and always always worked with a recipe. I was not confident with my "winging it" skills. But, since I retired, I am trying new things and getting more adventurous. I still mostly use recipes but will make substitutions and have had some good results. A couple of weeks ago I was buying ingredients to make Cajun Shrimp but left the recipe in the green pepper bin...or maybe it was the avocado bin. Anyhoo I had to wing it without the recipe and it turned out just fine. Need to trust myself more!
