Now I do not know what to cook Have you asked yourself that question. Each day you invent things now left without ideas. And you happened to you is that you do not know what to cook.

I usually plan for the month..the favorites foods my family wish to have..so i prepare a menu for the month and so i have number of choices to decide on a day. I would add few creative dishes in the menu so make it interesting!

I have this problems sometimes. I try to be creative and made food in many different ways. Sometimes my friends suggests me some ideas or I can find inspirations in the Internet. I have few cook books.

That is the exact reason that I am on here right now. I was looking in the freezer to see what I could cook for dinner and I really just do not want anything that we have in there. I find that I get so frustrated when I do not know what to cook. I have a whole freezer full of food, but it is so hard to find a dish that sounds appetizing!

Not much fond of cooking so it doesn't happen to me that often. ;) I am conventional in my cooking and most of the days you will end up eating same things over and over again. But still there are times when you do want to eat something out of routine and that's when I try to "invent" something new usually which is a mix of many dishes around the world as I would look it up on internet. LOL

Hi nezavisima, cooking is an art no doubt. It is a process of invention. Exercise your brain. I'm sure something will come out. You can make cocktails. You can mix European dish with Indian spicy dish. I think that will be extraordinary and delicious. Please let me know the result of your experiment.

I do have moments like this that although there is plenty of food, somehow nothing seems appealing. When I have moments like this I tend to make something of the usual simply to get something started.

Oh everyone has those moments. I know what's good but just no way. I think sometimes we fed everyday, so it is received. Thank you for your reply and nice day!

I think that is a common problem! I get tired of being the one who always has to decide what to make...the response when asked is always....i don't care or whatever you want. I don't even bother asking anymore. I make it, you'll eat it is my new motto! LOL! But, what I find fairly easy is: I buy meats in bulk when they are on sale and store in the freezer, so I will have chicken, fish, beef in seperate sections. Then, for dinner, I'll pull one out and just alternate them during the week. Then, I just fix a different vegetable each time. Of course, this doesn't work if all you have left is chicken because I can't always afford to keep it stocked up! Another option is to pick something you like tom make and just tweak the recipe..add or replace an ingredient with something else. good luck!

to try and do different things just fine. For me it is bad that when I ask my family what they want to eat they do not know myself and I have to fabricate lunch or dinner. Thanks for the reply and nice day!

Although I love to cook, now that due to illness I have a lot of no-nos as cooking goes, I find myself wondering what to cook with the permitted ingredients. I am always trying to make food that "looks" like the forbidden one. I crave for pork, yet I must only have chicken, turkey and fish. Nothing that can make cholesterol go up. Veggies have been of great help as they provide vitamins and minerals, fiber but, most of all, different colours in my dish. The only must is not to overcook them so they retain their beauty. A wok and sauteed veggies in almost no oil help a lot.

to eat vegetables is definitely now. I still think that cooking must comply with all. But I love to cook but sometimes I do not know what to do. Thanks for the reply and nice day!

Actually it happens to me a lot. Each week I try to plan in advance what me or my husband will cook for the whole week, not only it is hard to think of what to cook on just one day but think of planning it in advance for the whole week. It's time consuming and very hard. But a lot of times we tend to stray off the menu of the week, so we're like "okay hon, how are we gonna mess the kitchen today?". hehe. =)

This had happened to me too. I really don't like it when I ran out of idea on what to cook for lunch or dinner. I have no problem for breakfast dish since I can invent any combination but for lunch and dinner sometimes I find it hard what dish to cook for my family. Gathering my recipe books or checking the internet for new recipe would be a big help for me. But sometimes I'll stare at my fridge on what are available to cook and start cooking.

Good to that refrigerator to invent something and see what we have. Many times I have to do different things and experimenting do anything to get one. But it is very bad when exhausted. Thanks for the reply and nice day!

Oh yeah do not know what to cook is not pleasant when you know that you all wait. But sometimes, sometimes quite often find themselves in such accident scenarios. Thanks for the reply and nice day!
