I realized something the other day, after reading a comment on this blog.
First I had to stop laughing!
I, apparently, gave the impression that every night in my kitchen is filled with
blissful inspiration, laughing and dancing around to the delightful smells and sounds of gourmet food cooking in a timely, orderly fashion, with smiles and witty quips galore!
That was really, really funny!
Then I read some past posts and... OMG... SHE WAS RIGHT!
It did kinda sound like that!
I would like to officially dispel the rumor.
I don't actually enjoy cooking all that much.
Don't get me wrong... I like it okay, but my passion lies in the teaching of cooking, and not so much with the having to come up with a dinner every night.
My passion lies in the needing to give my family the very best I can in their meals, without breaking our budget, and while making sure the meals are healthy and preservative free.
Having to figure it all out ahead of time is a real drag, which is precisely why I had to come up with a way for me to continue my quest. I had to come up with the Prep Day, or I would be in a looney bin by now!
All the chopping, mincing, slicing, dicing, shopping and such gets me down... so doing it all at once free's up my mind for the week.
It was so funny thinking about Adrians comment. It made me literally imagine us all laughing, floating from task to task blissfully, smiling all the while.
It would be so nice if it were that way!
I'm just a Mama, trying to save a lot of money, feeding my hungry brood, trying to teach them manners, help their palates become international, and teach them to cook for themselves, and do it well. There's nothing sexier than a man that can cook!
So there you have it.
I cook because if I don't someone else will, and I just won't have that.
I am a control freak...hear me roar!
Love ya Adrian!
I so appreciate the eye opener!
