Normally my meals come together as a dash of some far-off idea crashing into the reality of what is available in my kitchen and within my time frame. These ideas often go from planning to implementation in under five minutes. Elegant, this workflow is not.
Reading this post (or any other post on that blog) has made me start to realize that perhaps a bit more thought should go into my dinners. Perhaps I am missing out on a huge arena of food-gasmic awesomeness simply due to lack of a time investment in the planning stages.
I’m not sure why this concept is foreign to me. Maybe I just rush through my daily life too often, in a hurry to get arrive at a tomorrow that never quite gets here. But I’m starting to realize that there is more. More that can be had by a simple investment of more time in the planning process, slowing down and considering before acting.
Integrating this concept into my life is one of my new goals.
