I am so thankful that I can still cook. I am slower at prep work and make more messes when I cook. A good mixer, processor, and my French carbon steel knives are lifesavers. I have found that using high quality tools in the kitchen helps me avoid accidents and accommodates the stiffness in my hands.
I love to cook. Today I made yeast rolls, cinnamon buns, oatmeal cookies, Harissa, cumin potato salad, and avocado salad dressing. Parkinson’s makes everything take longer to prepare. My Kitchen Aid mixer is worth every penny. I must have taken three naps in between cooking projects today. I did have the pleasure on gathering fresh lettuce and cilantro from my pallet garden today.
Earlier this week I posted two whimsies on eBay. Today, I put semi teen whimsies on consignment at a lovely, quaint boutique. This time last year I was devastated over my recent Parkinson’s diagnosis. It is amazing that I have grown so much in a year’s time. I never heard of whimsies until this past April, now I love making them. I have made fun online friends on food.com where I have learned so much about creative cooking. I have always been close to my husband, but now there is a new sweetness between us. Everyday I feel blessed…I know what hope is…I feel cherished.
