Nothing, Nothing, Nothing Sounds Good For Dinner!

We are about to leave for the store and there isn't anything I want for dinner. We really are a country with too many food choices. I sometimes just stare at all the different options, and have a hard time making up my mind. I don't take food for granted and I'm very grateful for the food I can buy, because there are so many that go without. I thank God everyday for blessing me. Hopefully, something will look halfway appealing when we go, especially since we decided to Target, my favorite store in the world. Do you ever have this problem?

Not really, I only buy organic food and I love making my own at home. I made a bean soup earlier, boy was that filling.

I've never heard of bean soup. I'm not that into beans unless they are pinto beans.

That's the beans of choice here @misunderstood_zombie and all I do actually is make a soupy tomato and salsa brew add some meat or chicken then the beans. I still have some of the soup I made yesterday and I'm finishing that off for breakfast.

Yes I sometimes have this problem too. I try to vary what we have so we don't repeat more than once a week.

I agree, the same old food gets boring.

Usually after feasting like what we did during the Christmas celebration, I will opt for simpler food the following day. The next day after Christmas, I use the leftover steamed rice to make sinangag na kanin (garlic rice), a viand of slice tomatoes with Tinapa (smoked fish) and coffee for breakfast. This is what we call a "poor man's meal"

@jstory07 A TV dinner. I couldn't think of anything to cook, so I found one that wasn't too bad.

We a spoiled country, that is for sure. I mean if your voting options are who can make me more money, might have lost the concept of what life is about. Sorry, your post did it to me and made me comment that way.

What's for dinner is a never ending question. I just need to get a book on quick things to have for dinner.

We try to stick to a menu, that way it takes away from the choices, because I agree with you, there are way too many!

Coral is part time carhop, and sometimes that's the only money we have for dinner, so we have developed a habit of going to the store everyday.

No, that's not something I would even think about, but if I see it anywhere I will give it a go.

All the time. I'll look at my freezer full of food and not want anything in it. I'll check out the fridge and do the same, then I'll opt for a potato. Yes, I'm satisfied with a simple potato and nothing else. I've been going through a lot of potatoes lately.

@just4him I've done that before, though lately I've enjoyed sweet potatoes also.

We have that problem almost every day. But thats what happens when you're a family of 3, with all different taste in food.

That makes it harder for sure, to find something everyone can agree on.

@bunnybon7 I try never to shop when I'm hungry, because I buy stuff I would normally never buy, and the next day i'm wondering what happened.

We also have too much food to choose from, but I stick on my list, I make plans for my menus every Monday morning and I know what I want to buy.

This is a good idea, but with the type of funds we have, we go to the store everyday. Not idea, but it works.

@misunderstood_zombie I go once a week, on Thursday. The stores have weekly promotions that start on Wednesday, I check the promotions online and I write my list.

Sometimes I say maybe I should starve myself for a day so I can like food again. Everything is good when you are hungry.

No, I have certain "comfort foods" that I "default" to if I'm indecisive. What did you decide on?

I have written a post on the Christmas goodies that are loaded here some made by us and some received as gifts. Difficult to choose
