I love planning and managing events. I successfully planned a few weddings in the last five years including my own.
I am no different when it comes to food. I plan every meal that comes out of my kitchen. By Monday morning I already know what will be for supper on Thursday.
It’s a habit I inherited from my mother.
In the days leading up to my wedding anniversary I served food that is light and filling at the same time. The intention was to eat myself stupid on the actual day which didn’t happen – After a piece of steak and veggies I just could not carry on.
One of those meals was a (deconstructed) sausage pie.
No, I didn’t make my own pastry. I took a shortcut.
There is always a Fresh salad on my plate. I don’t always eat it, but it always makes its way way onto my plates. After all, salad does make for pretty presentation and that’s what I like, a great-looking plate.
Lettuce is my least favourite thing so I keep coming up with ways to make salad without it and I think I have succeeded.
My 18-year-old little sister has beef with one thing when it comes to my cooking, the dishing up.
She says I take too long. In fact, she refuses to wait for me to make the plate look pretty. She just wants her food on the plate. No “styling or stacking”, which according to her, is what I do. No truth in that by the way. Well, at least I don’t think so.
Hope this inspires you to try out something new in your kitchen tonight, or tomorrow.
