I've been rearranging things in my kitchen lately. New space opened up and I realized that I have a small collection of clear bottles. I lined them up together and with the sunlight streaming in and sparkling them, it created a fresh breezy feel. Maybe it just feels like Spring.
This picture is from a couple of weeks ago and I was wondering what to do with it. Nothing particular came to mind, so I decided to post it today to enjoy even if it isn't "doing" anything.
Today is my brother's birthday and I'm getting ready to bake a cake in a little while. It's a joint effort with my mom, who is going to frost it.
While thinking about this joint birthday cake effort, I read this post on Bitten, about cooking together. The writer, Mark Bittman, was talking more about whether collective or communal cooking on a regular basis works. The post generated a great deal of discussion and made me think of pot luck dinners and how I really enjoy them.
He linked to an article, which discussed the concept in more depth. Below is an excerpt.
"The concept is that if four families split the workload of four nights of cooking, so that only one family cooks each night, then each family will benefit. The family whose turn it is to cook may expend extra effort on their co-op cooking night than they would when cooking for themselves, but each family will gain three days of luxury time and the benefit of homemade meals delivered to their doorstep."
I think this would be a bit much for most people, but it might work for some. Especially if it were maybe just once or twice a month. Do any of you cook with your neighbors or a set of friends on a regular basis?
