LOMP on hiatus

Well, that didn’t last long. Two weeks?

Judging by my stress levels and general bad mood regarding cooking the past two weeks, the LOMP tag is sure not going to be getting any bigger anytime soon.

I will be too depressed to read back on my LOMPs and see lists like this:

– take out x100
– ramen
– lean cuisine
– jjpagetti
– fried egg on rice
– tuna bap
spaghetti and jar sauce

It’s just impossible for me to juggle full-time work (longer hours coming soon), school two nights of the week, the requisite schoolwork, going to the gym, grocery shopping and any real cooking.  Plus, in order to stay sane, I need at least one hour of drama-watching or putzing around on the internet. Srsly.

Maybe, there will be enough free time on some weekends, and I will feel motivated to try new recipes.  But, I think its safe to say that LOMP is on semi-hiatus until after May.

GOMP: 2/8-2/11

Take my OMP with a grain of salt, too because if today is any indication of how this week is going to go, this could all drastically change. (Have I mentioned that I’ve been shooting longing stares at McD’s lately?)

– leftover kimchi bokkeumbap

– Italian Sausage, Red Pepper and Mushroom Risotto

– Cajun Chicken Pasta

– Mushroom Soup

Feeling so blah. I guess this will be the true test of the sustainability of OMP because it’s fairly easy to cook when you have time and are in a good mood. But who – tell me WHO – wants to prepare meals, albeit already nice and neatly pre-planned, when you’re feeling so crappy?

LOMP: 2/8 – 2/11

Looks like this week’s LOMP is a wash for the following reasons:
1.   I’m tired.  and PMSing.  BLEH.
2.  I have homework to get done before the long weekend.  BLEH x2.
3.  Pooh departs for Cali on Wednesday (less motivation to cook if its just me).

– Kimchi jigae
Too tired to write this up separately, but note to self:  don’t use gochugaru AND gochujang.  yowza.

– Leftover kimchi jigae

– Fridge stir fry (to use up tomatoes, mushrooms, and onion.  maybe a breakfast scramble a la Gulez)

– Jjapagetti and kimchi.

We’ll make up for it on Sunday!
