From car repairs to home carpentry it also has opened my eyes to appreciate what others are doing as a business for their livelihoods. It has helped make a difference in wiser spending as well as saving money even if I do not do something myself. Knowing that my family has developed this habit of eating out more than eating at home getting them to eat typical home cooked meals more often is not going to be to easy. The flickering light bulb moment or idea mentioned earlier was to see about getting some recipes from the restaurants that I could cook at home with the idea of saving some money initially. I also began to see how we have lost touch with the skill of cooking. We sure have all become masters of the microwave but the rest of the kitchen starts to get a little sketchy.
What typically happens when you see an interesting recipe that youd like to save and try out at some future date? You grab the closest piece of paper and quickly jot it down. You then stick it on your refrigerator or place it on the countertop telling yourself that the first chance you get youll put in your recipe box or favorite cookbook. But then what happens? It gets lost or misplaced and you never get the chance to try it out. Another scenario popular among at-home chefs is trying to save your favorite recipes. It may even be a family recipe that has been passed down from generation to generation. The way these recipes are usually stored is to be written down on 3" X 5" index cards and placed in an index card storage box. Or they may be written down in a blank recipe book. This is better than having them written on loose pieces of paper but there are also some major flaws with this method.
This may be a silly reflection but highlights the points mentioned above. When I was growing up I could not stand the taste of cauliflower. I saw no purpose for this food. To me it was a useless vegetable that took up space on our planet. I am not joking! Later when I actually worked in a supper club one of the appetizers we served was deep fried cauliflower with a side of cheese sauce. Ever since then cauliflower has become one of my favorite foods and in all of the traditional ways from raw to steamed and I still love the deep fried method as well. If it were not for that deep fried recipe I may never have had the pleasure of enjoying this healthy and now tasty food. I think it is important to recognize Restaurants themselves whether they be a fast food independent mom and pop big chain type or even 5 star all bring in millions of people every day across our nation.
