I’m back. I’m back in the kitchen, recovered from life, and ready to take this kitchen head-on.
It was a hard year. And not that the hardness is over, but I’m moving forward again. I was pretty stuck. Financially, emotionally, spiritually. Hardly exercised, barely meal-planned, struggled to spend quiet times in the morning with my God. As with all things, there are lots of components to being stuck in a pit. And while those things that put me there are still kinda hanging around, God’s gently raised my chin to Him and said, “Enough. I can get you out of this, but staring at the floor of the pit and complaining will do nothing to ease this up.”
I managed to keep the facebook page going in all of this – even if just for myself to remind myself that this was still here. This thing I was called to was still here. God didn’t tell me to stop, I just got tired.
I miss cooking. I cooked a ginormous meal of homemade Korean dumplings with Einkorn Flour (courtesy of the new cookbook from Jovial … it’s really the best). I cooked the entire thing from scratch. Took me nearly two hours. It was cathartic. I felt at home again. I need to cook, need to create.
So here I come. I’m sick of this pit. January – a fresh start reminded me of how much I was sick of sitting like this. February, the second month, the second chance is here and I mean business. God’s got this.
