Fun in the Kitchen

Invest in a good blank journal. Add your own recipes and write them out by hand into the journal. This act allows you to put your energies into the book and bind the recipe to memory.

Get into the habit of bringing cloth bags with you when you shop, cutting down on plastic.

Share recipes with loved ones and try theirs. Maybe you can give a bland dish some spice.

Grow your own herbs from heirloom seeds, organic seeds
Support local farmers markets and push for fresh free range food at the local grocery stores

Buy one or two classic cookbooks. Throw out old papers with recipes on them but copy the recipes in to your blank journal first

Don't throw out glass jars-store grains or teabags in them. Make neat labels for the jars.

Try something new. Experiment. Paint the kitchen. Put a goddess shrine on top your fridge. Tie up dried bundles of herbs on hooks and have herbs within your reach at all times.

Reduce, reuse, recycle. Cut down on plastic. Clean the kitchen with lemon, pine or other citrus mints. Use vinegar, a more environmentally friendly alternative to the cleaning supplies, for cleaning. Invigorating scents make cleaning less of a chore.

After all that, you may not be able to stay out of your kitchen
Blessed Be
