I want to get back to really enjoying my food – actually tasting and recognizing flavours and textures. One of the smaller ways that I am going to slow things down is to turn off my Blackberry for a couple of hours every evening. I am constantly “in touch” and out of sheer habit am always on the damn phone. Who am I? The President of the United States? Do I need to have my phone with me at all times for fear that something so majorly important will not get through to me? Or that some important information will be tweeted out or put on some FaceBook status and I need to constantly be ‘standing by’ just in case? Seriously.
Anyway, as mothers, I know we all feel this busy-ness. I don’t believe that it’s at all possible to shut it down completely, but I feel that we may all be able to do better jobs of picking and choosing what is important – and what needs focus (and thus slowing down, and being able to be more present in whatever you doing – eating or otherwise). For me, cooking, eating well and enjoying food with my family is very important, and I am going to continue to make these small efforts towards doing more of that. Prepare to see more recipe experiments and photos of food. Coming soon ;)
On this theme, I would like to leave you all with a few photos taken by “Blair Marie Photography” of my daughter and I doing something we both love: baking cookies!
