I can’t believe it’s been nearly three months since my last post, everything is so different now to back then. I’m not sure what month it is sometime let alone what day! Since then I think most places in the world have been in some kind of lock down or another and each day sort of blurs into the next. I’ve also had my 31st birthday (literally 2 days after the last post) and my Grandma died so I’m still sort of recovering from that as it’s all been so surreal.
I should probably mention that I actually wrote this goals list about two months ago, so they’re not all that up to date in some ways but I didn’t have any to add and still wanted to do a post on them. Even with lockdown changing here in England, things opening up and life getting closer to normal, I still think it’ll be a long way till it’s properly back to how it was and a lot of time will be spent at home so I’m trying to stick to the goals. To be honest the routine parts are probably things that I should try to stick to afterwards anyway!
I don’t know what it is recently, maybe I’m feeling a bit better in general or it’s that whole start new goals and get healthier with my eating and not have loads of rubbishy snack food that’s made me want to start making more food again. I’ve always liked cooking, not really baking on my own unless it’s carrot cake or cookies (mainly because they’re my favourite cakey things to eat and that I can actually make well without messing up something), but more savoury things and actual meals.
Recently, probably the last five or so years, I have become more interested in finding new recipes, I haven’t made many but I like looking for them anyway and finding out about food from other countries and traditional food for different regions. I think this is probably 50% because of ME, not being able to do any actual travelling to these countries, and 50% my age as I’m getting older and probably people get more interested in these things in general in their 20s than they would be in their teens. I know I’m generalising but I’ve tended to think of cooking as something that’s a grown up thing to do, maybe that’s just me.
