To Cook, Perchance to Steam
I know that cooking affords me some quiet time to just let slip into a Zen like state prepping dinner. I know that it gives me a sense of connection to everyone who has ever cooked, back to that caveman who first flung a piece of wooly mammoth into the fire. It gives me a may to show my love to my friends and family by preparing them a special meal. It makes a holiday feel like a holiday for me, manning the stove as my father before me. It is something that I have always done and something I hope to always do.
With so many food options just a car ride or a phone call away, making the deliberate decision to cook may seem like an odd choice. Of course, I feel different and will leave you with this thought. Like a person, take them out to dinner. Love a person, cook them dinner.
