Variety is the spice of life. I love to experiment in the kitchen as in life, so I don’t follow the rules or recipes… I make my own.
Having recently becoming a dad for the first time when I should in fact be going through a midlife crisis has taught me two valuable lessons in life, other than unconditional love. How to change a nappy and how to manage my time.
Consider this for a minute. We spend about 22 days out of each year preparing our meals. Taking the average life expectancy of your fellow man into account your looking at around 4 years of your life that is spent preparing and cooking food. Don’t get me wrong I love cooking and i’m totally addicted to food as is every human being on this planet, so much so that without it we die. There’s no cold turkey, no rehab it’s straight to the morgue. See Bobby Sands. By simply planning meals ahead, and making food to cover two days instead of one, I have immediately halved the time I spend in the kitchen. And lets not forget the most incredible invention EVER…The humble dishwasher.. The best money I ever spent, if you don’t have one get one.. Saves you time, saves you money and loads of stress.
Embrace the Jonathan Livingston Seagull that is in every single one of you when trying these recipes. Explore, experiment and push everything to the limits.
