I Got to Work in the Kitchen

Question of the Day: What was peaceful about today?

I realized, in the past year, that being in the kitchen does a lot of things for me.

It relaxes me when I’m tired. It, in a way, helps me unwind. It lifts my spirits up when I’m down.

It gives me that sense peace I cannot find elsewhere.

And, since I started baking, i realize that my sanity looks forward to the weekend when I can finally spend a few hours in my little kitchen with my new best friend (my oven). Those few hours go a long way in keeping everything grey in the topmost floor.

However, I fear that all these chocolate and sugar will find their way to my hips. Haha. Oh well, everything has a price. And if gaining a few pounds will help keep me sane, then that’s a price I’d gladly pay.

Question of the Day: When was the last time you felt at peace?

That would be really easy to answer.

December 24th. Christmas eve. The last day I was able to spend time in the kitchen.

Our kitchen is really small and not equipped with the best appliances but I make do with what I have and I recently realized that the kitchen is my haven.

Whenever I feel down, being productive in the kitchen helps lift my spirits up. And I just remembered a conversation I had with a friend.

I told her that I just realized that I’m at my happiest when I’m in the kitchen.

Her reply?

“You’re just realizing that now?”

Question of the Day: How ambitious are you today?

I definitely feel very ambitious today.

I just bought my very first electric oven.  I don’t have an oven at home.  I never had an oven at home so this is definitely a first for me.  And a 28L oven at that because Christmas came early fr me today, thanks to my mother and an aunt.  I feel so blessed as I can finally try baking now.

In fact, I actually already looked up recipes for chocolate chip cookies and listed down what I need for when my father does the groceries tomorrow.  And for my first try, I decided on a soft and chewy chocolate chip recipe by Martha Stewart.  I really hope I don’t mess it up.  🙂
