I was sitting in the car with a friend this weekend talking about food- what we love to eat, love to cook, what authors or bloggers inspire us. It brought forth the feeling I sometimes get in the kitchen. Cooking can be really quiet. There are moments, in between steps, when you are just sitting, waiting, watching bacon bubble or eggs get a little less runny. These moments are so brief, there is little room to go grab the entertainment device or start a conversation, so it builds in a little pause into that day. So much lately has been go, go, go. First my beautiful kids take my full attention, then, my job takes my full attention and finally, if there is a second left, my loving husband takes my full attention. But, even so, there are these moments- small, little moments where I pause and watching the bacon bubble.
