It’s amazing that, for no more than I tend to cook at home, I can amass so many kitchen gadgets.
Included in the above items are a teakettle, a toaster oven, and a bunch of silverware I NEVER should’ve moved to my new location. In fact, those three things were three of the FIRST things I bought in my new apartment. Why I ever chose to move the old ones to Dallas, I can’t imagine.
This will be the first kitchen purge, of which I suspect there’ll be several over the next year. Cooking is one thing I really enjoy doing – I guess like so many of us I tell myself I don’t have the time to do — so I tend to eat out — FAR too much.
And let’s face it, we all hate the clean up.
But looking at these items in this morning’s post gives me a reminder that I should make the effort (and the time) to cook at home more. It’s healthier, it’s better for me, and a good argument can be made that it’s better for the planet.
Looking at these items also makes me realize I need to invite OTHERS over to dinner more. I truly enjoy having people over, having good wine, engaging in great conversation. Again, I just always tell myself I don’t have enough time to do it right, to plan it, to put everything in place.
So, here’s an idea – employ more sponteneity…maybe PLAN less dinner parties, but HAVE more.
Now, there’s an idea worth celebrating.
