Cooking motivation

Sometimes you just need to make the mundane things more fun.  That stuff includes cooking (there are just many other things I’d like to do than stand in the kitchen for something that’ll take me 2 hours to make and 2 minutes to consume).  You can say the cooking bug hasn’t really bit me yet, but it’s a slow thing, I’m getting a lot faster so I can endure the notion of cooking for survival.

I mean, I even do Safeway delivery because I dislike grocery shopping, it’s so blah-ing.  My cooking fanatic friends swear once Whole Foods opens in our neighborhood I’ll enjoy it.  But how?  Will there be clothes like Target?

Hopefully one day I will cook for pleasure, but I think that might come in my later stages of life.

For the moment, this little papaya colored 5-speed handmixer entices me to whip something up.  It will replace my super old handmixer that was $15 from Target that I bought over a decade ago in my early years of college.


Maybe that’s why all these kitchen appliances are coming in fun colors – for gals like me.  Do you have cute colored appliances?  Here are some other cutie kitchen things that I think would help motivate me to stay in the kitchen longer.
