Sherri Meyer, MG Registered Dietitian,
With a new baby and 2 toddlers, my free time to experiment in the kitchen is limited. However, we recently underwent a kitchen renovation which has left me with the desire to prepare delicious meals in my new light filled space. Until of course, I hear the crying baby and 2 little "helpers" who end up putting most of the food in their mouth (especially if it involves chocolate). That said, since we moved back into our new kitchen, I realize how an inviting space makes preparing meals so much more pleasurable. A recent meal of grilled cheese sandwiches prepared on our new stove gave me more pleasure than should be allowed when making such a simple meal. My surroundings have transformed my attitude about simple food preparation.
For the last 9 months I was uninspired and my previous love for baking and cooking was dampened. Simply being able to see the light and outdoors while I cook has rejuvenated my previous love for cooking. I am really looking forward to our first holiday meal in our new kitchen.
