Cooking: BORED

I have been working a lot lately. 
No, I did not get a job, at least not a paying one. 
However, I have been painting the wood in my house which basically is about 
14 miles of baseboards and crown moldings, 
87 kitchen doors and drawers
and 9 large old doors 
(I am not exaggerating about the doors, or much else for that matter). 

I hate "detail" painting so I have worked on just a little everyday so I don't get sloppy and aggravated. Thus, it took me two weeks to paint the doors and drawers in my kitchen.

My focus has also been on getting ready for the consignment sales
that I own with my super efficient partner 
(who is quite excellent at pulling her weight and mine as well, now that I think of it.)


So, between 100 loads of laundry, painting and setting up websites and mailing lists, 
I have become uninspired by food. 

Dinner is a dreaded thought. 
Last night we had hamburgers. 
We have had lots of tacos (three times last week, only once cooked at home) 
and grilled chicken...lots of grilled chicken.
I have eaten LOTS of salads and I am sick of salads.

I know  it is a mother's blessing/curse to create meals every day of the week.
I am privileged that I can afford chicken and seafood. 
And that I am not forced to scavenge my next meal. 
But blessings become monotonous as well. 

Anyone have a  go to website, cookbook, etc. that they love? 
I would love to hear about it!

I need some inspiration...maybe  you have some place you get yours?
A website? Favorite cookbook? 
Please share!
