My job isn't even that difficult and there are days I come home with no motivation to cook. I know anything I make will taste better than carry out or frozen dinners, so why do I drag my feet? What do you do to convince yourself the effort is worth it?

Baking seems to be a general trend here, and it's something I don't do as much of. I do a lot of my cooking on top of the stove. I think it's time to switch things up!
What do you put on your chicken breast? I seem to always have dry chicken when I bake it in the oven.
I seal it in a pouch of aluminum foil with a little butter, herb, seasoning and slivered veggies. Bake it a quarter hour if it's thawed, half an hour if not, and along with a hunk of bread there's supper. It's a method called "en papillote." Useful.
That sounds so delicious. I'll have to try that.
Try it with a couple of very thin slices of lemon, some capers, a sprig of tarragon. That'll relax you after a long day's work.
I'm the same way about starting projects. I usually have a general plan of what I'm going to make, but I think putting it in writing would help. Thanks!
Thanks for the advice. I will check out your recipes and be ready next time I go grocery shopping!
