the prompt for today:
I used to have an eating disorder...back then, entering a kitchen gave me a certain sense of nervousness and anxiety.
Most days when I walk into the kitchen I'm anxious to find the exact thing I'm craving (and a lot of the time I have no idea what I even want once I start looking!).
I'm always excited if it's coffee & pastry time (my daily treat to myself as I sit down to write).
Preparing dinner for my family always makes me feel happy. I love my ability to whip up a meal for my loved ones and know that, although I'm far from a five star chef, they eat and enjoy my food.
If I'm entering a kitchen during Thanksgiving, or some other holiday (or family gathering) I feel giddy and festive. Family dinners are my favorite!
Really, the way I feel when I enter a kitchen usually just depends on my mood and what I'm planning to do once I'm in that kitchen.
Let's not forget that oftentimes I write at the kitchen table, so that's always an enjoyable time.
