I’m referring to food. As in “I’m not going to make that dish again as I’ve made it before”
The entire dish in the photo above, are all elements of dishes I’ve made before, brought together to make a good lunch. Call me lazy, I’ve had a hectic weekend of functions and running around, so coming into work on Monday was a bit of a mission. All in all though, I obviously need to make sure that my family (as in the ones I work for) get fed and their tummies are nice and full.
I’ve posted the lentil and sweet potato patties before, this time I added, corn and chickpeas. The carrot salad is also a recipe I’ve used, gaucamole is universal, my kale pesto is always in the fridge, and chicken breasts are one of those items that most people have in their fridge or freezers.
Being creative or reinventing recipes are all part of the cooking process. If something doesn’t work for you in a recipe, think of things that could replace it. (Without stuffing it up)
This can work for almost all recipes (besides baking!) and ingredients can be substituted accordingly!
Food is about love, joy, passion…also to calm the stomach growls when you are hungry…obvious?
So eat what you enjoy, what you love. Make things that excite you, cook something new, but don’t be embarrassed about eating your favorites!
Above all, just have fun with it.
