Sometimes you have to remind yourself what it is you love. A week or so ago another photographer friend, Alex, and I decided to just spend some time in the kitchen, catching up and trying new recipes. It wasn’t for work, wasn’t a job, it was just cooking. Sure, we weren’t going to leave our cameras behind, but it was refreshing to be in a familiar space and it not be for work, but because we simply wanted to.
We rolled pasta, made a mess, cleaned it up, made another, and ate right from the pan with our fingers. It was all of the things you can’t do when you are ‘at work’ and all of the fun of being in your own kitchen with people you are comfortable around.
At the end of the day, it was the sort of reminder to me that I love food. I love cooking. I love the challenge of playing with a new recipe and tasting the outcome. It was fun to chat and be real. It was fun to cook. My kitchen always has been the space where we gather, it was nice to remind myself why.
If you haven’t done it in a while, grab a friend, mix your own fun Mint Infused Lemon Drop Cocktail and get in the kitchen. Plan a crazy delicious menu and roll your sleeves up. Smear flour on the counters and fresh butter under your fingernails. Laugh together.
I may like cocktails a little too much, but I am hoping it’s not too long before we decide to try a new recipe again!
If you are in the Philadelphia region and need a photographer, Alex is great to work with and has an amazing portfolio. Check out her online portfolio to see her work.
Cheers with this Mint Infused Lemon Drop Cocktail and let’s have a little fun.
