There must be a correlation between rain and cooking..
Just made a wonderful breakfast..now, for lunch.
Do your cook more because its raining?
Yup, raining inland, too, and I'm baking. I definitely love to cook when it's cool and wet out.
I'm with you. I even plan on "rainy day" foods after hearing that there is going to be a gloomy day on the weekend. It's a free pass to stay home and cook, when you might feel like you must be out and about and not cooking on good weather days.
My Le Crueset 7 qt. must think that chilly, dreary weather is the bomb because that's when I fire her up. Pot roasts, short ribs, chickens, chili, soups...
I am so glad to know it's not just me! Those indoor days make me itch to bake something wonderful, and dinner usually becomes a much more complicated dish than I had originally planned.
Whenever I tell DH that it's a blankie-and-book-on-the-couch-day, that lasts long enough for a quick read, a 10 minute power nap, and I'm off the couch and into the kitchen.
