When it's Done it's Done!
Are we there yet? I’m hungry, is dinner ready? How much longer till dinner? Sound familiar?
To this day, I can honestly say that I have been victim of such questions, especially when I am back home in Seattle with my family. In culinary school, we all fell victim to asking the Chef, “how long will xyz take” to which they would respond, “it’s done when it’s done.” Yes Chef, end of story!!! I was one of those students so I am not here to ridicule or make fun as quite frankly, we all do it! Pressed for time with hungry kids or friends asking the same question, it’s hard not to.
I invite you to venture away from that mindset and to really enjoy the process. By taking that question out of your head, you immediately take a load off your back and can relax without the stress of hungry guests salivating around you. I know you are probably thinking “that’s not realistic” but it absolutely is if you start your week with a plan! Look at your calendar, determine what nights you have a little extra time and which nights you do not. Figure out when you have time to shop and how you can maximize a week’s worth of meals with one visit to the grocery store. With planning and forecasting, cooking can be rewarding, delicious, nutritious and on the table in no time!
