“Just as appetite comes by eating, so work brings inspiration, if inspiration is not discernible at the beginning.” – Igor Stravinsky
Cooking is an inspired action. Cook and you will be inspired to cook more.
A good long walk creates a hearty appetite.
Both of these put together create a delicious meal.
I was not inspired today; nor did I have much of an appetite. I will say that I know myself well and that’s just how I am. I had my usual coffee, English muffin, I came home and did not feel like much of anything except pomme frites. I made 2 potatoes and usually eat them heartily, but the rest of them, however, are still sitting on the paper towel. Washed down with a big mug of tea.
I did go for a walk, it felt good but not good enough to whet my appetite. I have thought a lot about food and put lots of loose notes together in my book which made me feel productive – I am committed. I have a flank steak to cook tomorrow that I know will be amazing.
The weather has been lousy, cold and raining sporadically. When I was driving home it was horrible, the rain came down and it thundered and then hail hit hard – I actually screamed in my car because it hit so loud. Moody weather; moody me. 🙂 I will have another mug of tea now…
