In COVID-19 times, being a “good cook” means using what you have, being adventurous and not expecting perfect. If you are too rigid with your recipes/meal plans, you might find you don’t have what you need after you go to the store/pickup supplies as what’s not available in any given area is changing pretty quickly right now.
I admit I’ve fallen off my usual foodie game and am relying on much simpler meals lately and cooking has become a bit of a chore.
If you are feeling the same, here are a few tips to help you rev out of that dinnertime rut and hopefully avoid “ingredient panic” when something sells out at your local market with no sign of restock. Remember like many difficult times in life this is a “transitional period” that can’t last forever. So keep calm everyone, and cook on!
Also if you have another cooking capable person in the house, now is a great time to increase their cooking capacity! My partner made this chili while I was working today with no Helprin
