It’s been a while since my last post. I was very busy with planning for and executing on my mom’s birthday celebration. More on that later.
As I reflect, it’s only been about 9 months since I started this journey and I’m a long way from the “clueless cook” I once was. Tomorrow is trash and recycling day and as a symbolic gesture I am tossing out all of my takeout menus with the recyclables. This isn’t to say that I will never order out when time is an issue, but more often than not I shall continue to cook my own meals, not only to save on money and improve my skill but also to be more aware of what I am putting into my body. It’s a win, no matter how you look at it.
