My love of cooking is back...!

I know I've been scarce...I've had such issues with my connection lately..it keeps dropping which is hugely frustrating! J seems to have fixed it now - I hope!

It's been a while since I have been excited to be in the kitchen.

I am a trained chef and for 5 years worked in various restaurants around Johannesburg. After a while the hours started becoming too much as you work 10 - 12 hour days 5-6 days a week. Its also not a life for a lady wanting to settle down and start a family.

Its hard when you are cooking 10 hours a day to still want to come home and cook and to still enjoy it, lol.

The bug comes and goes...most of the time cooking for me is a chore, something I have to do rather then want to do.

Then there are the times when I absolutely love cooking and my family love it too lol.

The bug has bitten this week...from a Thai seafood curry for my friends on Friday to a full on roast lunch yesterday .....wonder whats on the menu tomorrow :)
