I have recently heard from a couple of different sources, “How you do anything is how you do everything.” Is it true? I
recycle recreate food. The eggplant parmesan dip was not totally consumed and was begging to be out of the ‘frig. So I used it as a spread in a roll-up. If the quote is true, do I recycle recreate in everything I do? Or, is the thing I do….”save leftovers” … and that’s why my garage AND basement look like they do? Or, is the thing I do…”be spontaneous/be inspired in the moment”… and that’s why planning is hard for me, who knows what surprises await me?
I often don’t know what I am cooking in the kitchen until I’m finished. It gets created along the way. It’s more adventurous that way. But there are plenty of people who must have a recipe and they follow it closely. Is that how they approach the rest of life? Life must be predictable, planned out, a well-traveled road. Could it be said that who you are in the kitchen is who you are in life? Is that what the quote is saying? Is this true? Do you agree?
flour tortilla, eggplant dip, shredded cheddar (next time I’ll probably use mozzarella instead), browned ground beef (with purple onions), romaine lettuce, diced tomatoes and a bit of Ranch dressing to “juice it up.” (Do I always want to “juice things up?”)
So, what do you think? Is who you are in the kitchen a picture of who you are in life? What kind of cook are you? What kind of life do you live?
