Sachet You Say?
The first time I made a crockpot stew, I was having friends over for Thanksgiving. Nervously, I added about 20 more peppercorns than were necessary and found myself fishing them out a few hours later. It was a terrible dinner. The company was a mixed bag of uncomplimentary personalities. Peppercorns cracked in unsuspecting teeth. Needless to say, my newness to both cooking and hosting gatherings in my home were apparent to all present and as awkwardly so as the deluge of unwelcome spices.
Stinging Nettle Harvest
When the pandemic hit in 2019, I was working at a local frozen grocery store that catered to specific diets. The idea of applying to this company was to teach cooking classes, but the classes were on hiatus for the unforeseeable future as so many things were then, so I sold frozen dietary meals. My title was Nutritional Associate, but I’ll admit that my ego was somewhat embittered by this turn of events after moving two states north to pursue a career in cooking.
