There seems to be a surge lately of "I've lost my mojo" posts out there in the food-blogosphere, and sadly, friends, your Nervous Cook is no exception. We're all promising it's temporary; we're all blaming it on social obligations, workload, oppressive humidity, and generally being too busy living life to spend time blogging about it, and here I am raising my hand and saying, "Me too."
Me too, I'm too busy living my life to spend time blogging about it; too busy making and eating delicious food to stop long enough to snap a picture or write down an ingredients list. Most of what we're eating these days is as-is anyway: A handful of fresh strawberries; a cucumber sliced and tossed with scallions and greens in mellow white miso; peaches just barely brushed with balsamic and grilled to perfection.
You don't need a blog post about all that: You're probably doing the same things yourselves.
But rest assured I have still been cooking, still been eating, and still been writing. Those things will never change: They're as much a part of the fabric of the Nervous Cook as my anxiety in the kitchen is, and I wear them all like earned badges on a Girl Scout sash.
I'm also still taking photos, and would love it if you'd join me on Instagram: Search for justmeister. I'm also pretty noodles about Pinterest: Find me there as well.
And don't worry, all: We're bound to get our mojo back soon enough. In the meantime, let's just keep being too busy living to blog about it.
