My mental state and cooking

11 May

Tonight after dinner I had the great inspiration to cook some cakes, only to find there were no eggs. End of the world! It didn’t even register to me that there were ways to get around that (thankyou Fiona for reminding me).

So instead, there is now a pastry cooking away in the oven. Hoping it turns out alright, we don’t even have any ice cream or anything to put with it. Shopping doesn’t always manage to take enough of a priority at the moment it seems!


While waiting, just hanging out in the kitchen avoiding all the things I ‘should’ be doing (yes yes, I am well aware ‘should’ is a swear word), I realised that I only cook when in a reasonably fit mental state. Crazy food experiments that don’t always work out, or just baking a packet cake – there is zero interest in doing that when having a crappy day. I eat (too much) and cook (what is required) but there is no joy in it.

Cooking is such a natural pleasure for me and I am so happy to say that I am enjoying it just about all the time now. Making real food for the kids instead of slapping up something ready-made and knowing how much better it is just makes me smile.
