Discovery!

I’ve found that I enjoy coming home from work and cooking — which means cooking up a storm around 1 a.m. It’s much more relaxing than waking up, hitting the gym, trying to each lunch and then cook for the night. This could be the start of a new trend.

Now, cooking is something I love to do, but for some reason, I never indulged too much into it. (At one point, mom tried to push me to go to culinary school — which I’d love to do, if I were independently wealthy so I could play and wouldn’t have to actually earn a living as a chef.) I mean, I learned the staples from my grandma. I learned a bunch of family recipes (and if you’ve ever had my chicken soup, you can’t go back to anything manufactured) — but things like different, tasty ways to cook fish, pork and chicken? Not really on the agenda. This is all new territory for me.

Some friends have also given me some new recipes to try. I can’t wait to try the Jamaican pork and the mango chicken. And making food in bulk for the week — why did I never think of this before? I mean, I remember reading about it, but I was always like, “Pfffft. That’s dumb.” But now that I’m more pressed for time than ever, it makes a hectic life much more manageable and leaves me far less tempted to stray into the land of restaurant food.

Oh my kitchen … renovations may come faster to you than anticipated.

    A couple years ago, I used to come home and bake bread or experiment with veggies a few times a week. I should start up again; thanks for the inspiration!
