Make it easy on yourself
Nothing else will complicate your life as your own ambition!
You can quote me!
I want to take a few minutes to explain this NEW PHILOSOPHY of mine in a few statements, applicable to anything in your life, especially during holidays.
Cooking is no longer the task it used to be for our ancestors. They had to grow their own food, raise and butcher their own animals and provide for hungry mouths with whatever resources they had on hand.
We can find fabolous food every where, from all parts of the world.
Think of cooking as your artistic expression and your health barometer.
Cook only when you feel the passion to create.
Cook only what connects you emotionally to the task.
Cook only if your health depends on your skills in the kitchen
Cook only if your efforts in the kitchen cannot be duplicated by anybody else.
Hence, my getting pizza on the table through the quick method I borrowed from someone. If I had great pizza available to me in town, and I could afford it, and it had the health benefits, little salt, little cheese I need, then, gladly, I would let someone else do it.
Women tend to kill themselves with MUST DO LISTS!
Thank the purveyors of good food this season. Go out of your way to appreciate the butcher, the baker, the organic farmer. They are your best friends during holiday season.
Enjoy the holidays. If you are the cook in your household, figure out what others do well, and use their products.
WE HAVE EARNED IT!
