The ideal snack (aka my lunch)...

Today I decided to care about my lunch. And since I'm feeling so blah, I decided that I'd fix something I love.

You know how a taste, a smell has the ability to transport you somewhere else?

Well the first time I ever had gorgonzola and honey was at Zuni Cafe in San Fran. It was our last course, and it was (literally) heavenly.

So here's the plate...

Stella gorgonzola with Marshall's East Bay Wildflower honey, Breton whole wheat crackers, organic Granny Smith slices, organic strawberries.

The only thing that could have improved this heavenly lunch would have been a fab sparkling wine...Chandon would be nice.

I find that sometimes even making simple meals when time is limited can seem like a chore. What you said about enjoying some time to yourself and listening to music that you love made me think of something I do daily. I am a creature of habit and routine puts me at ease. Each night after work, I walk the dog then come home to make dinner. I used to turn the TV on in the other room for background noice to keep me company. Meaningless celebrity news usually. But I have now been listening to music while I cook. I have discovered new music that I love and even pulled out some old favorites that I had forgotten about. Listening to an album is so different than the radio. So many good songs that you would never know otherwise. Music can really change your mood. And just like food, it can take you to a place you might have forgotten or a time where you just wish you could be back in. Sometimes stepping out of what you do on a daily basis introduces you to something that is even better. Making a meal now is something I look forward to every night. The 30 - 45 minutes flies by and relaxes me. Now I just need to figure out how to make doing the dishes something to look forward to and enjoy!!! And by the way, your lunch looks delicious. I agree, a glass of Chandon would be perfect. A carmel pot de creme would also hit the spot right about now!

While the thought of gorgonzola leaves a not-so-good taste in my mouth, I am intrigued by the idea of taking true pleasure in what we eat. Having a baby has changed my life and has returned me to being able to choose food that tastes good and is healthy, rather then what won't taste bad coming back up. (sorry, that's gross) Perhaps I will be taking more time to think about what I eat. Right now I am enjoying a glass of delicious wine, although it is not expensive. A good idea.
