I Should Cook More Often
Above you can see a dish that I cooked yesterday. I made meatballs stuffed with ewe’s cheese. I did eat it with noodles and gravy. I used ground beef and ground pork, I added one egg, ketchup, mustard, freshly sliced onions and fresh parsley. I added some salt and pepper and breadcrumbs. Then I did knead everything together and started to form meatballs. I am not sure if this is different elsewhere, but that’s how most people do it in Germany. The only thing that was not so German about my meatballs is that I stuffed ewe’s cheese into them before I started to roast them. The ewe’s cheese was a nice tip I got and I wanted to try this and it was super delicious.
I can cook some basic things but it is not much. I do now want to learn more, and maybe I start to cook a little bit more often. The thing is that this was a nice idea that I took out of my therapy. Not that my therapist would think that my nutrition would be the only reason why I still have some phases with anxiety and depression at times, but she said it is at least one piece of the puzzle. She suggested me to cook more often and to eat less convenience food. That was an idea that inspired me. I do see that my nutrition is not the best.
When I for example do visit my mother sometimes, then I can eat very good food, however, at home I would rather open canned soups way too often. I don’t think that the nutrition alone would be a big problem, but I agree that it is one part where I can improve my life. Now I must admit I am more the lazy guy and it probably will never happen that I cook every day, but I do at least want to do this more often than usual now.
Talking about the stuffed meatballs I was amazed because they were super delicious. That is a new dish I can cook now. I want to try other dishes soon. I think as soon as I can cook more than just five dishes or so, I will have more choice over the week then. Maybe that was one of the reasons why I didn’t cook so much, because I would create the same dishes over and over again. I will expand my list and learn new things, and maybe then it is more fun.
