Learning 2 Love 2 Cook: Pea Soup
Anyone who knows me knows I do not cook. It’s not that I haven’t tried it’s just that I easily lose interest and end up burning it or I follow the directions in the wrong sequence or while reading the directions forget an important part which ruins the whole dish.
Well, I am happy to report that I’ve moved to a whole new level of cooking in the kitchen so those of you out there who can sympathize with my lack of success in the cooking arena listen up!
Learning 2 Love 2 Cook: 3 Tips 4 Success
As with most things in my life I realized I had the wrong attitude. Instead of being resentful that my husband wasn’t cooking (although we now divide kitchen duties down the middle) or feeling rushed to get the job done you need to walk into the kitchen with the RIGHT ATTITUDE.
2. All We Need is Love
I know it seems cliche but they really do know what they’re talking about when they say to cook with love – it really does change the vibrational frequency of the food and makes for a completely different experience.
3. Spirit of Adventure
Once a week (okay, I’m lying it’s usually more like once a month, but there’s nothing wrong with aiming high) I try something new, even though my family cringes when I announce this. Don’t let them get you down. They are creatures of habit and if you don’t introduce new things into their life they’ll never know that pea soup is quite delightful when it’s made the old fashioned way, from mother’s heart with love vs. poured out of campbell’s metal soup can filled with salt.
So there you have it. I am thrilled to announce that the last 3 NEW meals I made my family actually applauded with “WOW this is great!” (instead of OMG do we really have to eat that?!?) Even though it’s taken me 25 years to learn how to cook – it’s never too late to find your Inner Divine Chef. ♥
