Thanks for all the helpful advice! My saying and belief is use it or lose it. I even go to the gym to keep up muscle mass. That’s a good thing.
Most of my local friends are younger than me by 7-10 years! One couple we socialize with are still in their 40’s! The kids are millennials, so we try to stay in touch with what that generation is doing, how they think and occasional help with technology if we get hung up.
I’ve been cooking ever since I was 18, making it 47 years now, so maybe I’m just a little burned out. But I hope to get the mojo back and try to spark my old enthusiasm for the kitchen.
Through observation since my thirties I have realized most seniors start to cook and eat less as well as eat differently. Totally agree on the big slabs of protein; a rib eye will usually be 3 meals for me. Heavy foods are often not appealing. At restos a lot of my plate comes home with me.
Linda Whit, I’ve seen your great dinners on the dinner thread and am amazed and admire when singletons take the time to cook themselves a good meal.
Anyway, never really expected to be in a funk like this!! One reason I started to post here. On balance, I’ve had an atypical year since early January, with a few setbacks, though nothing serious.
Thanks again for the help and advice!
