Sometimes I feel like I must be an alien from another galaxy or at least another planet. I get funny looks from people, especially other women, when they find out that I cook my own meals. To top that bazaar notion off, not only do I prepare my own meals but, I also bake (breads, cakes, cookies, and pastries), grow most of my own fruits and vegetables, and I even mix my own blends and I grind my own spices, by hand, without the help of a spice grinder.
I really enjoy the whole process from start to finish. When I present my family and loved ones with a meal I take pride in knowing that I am giving the best that I have to offer. Our bodies are made up of what we put into them and so, shouldn't we only eat the very best that is available? I am constantly perplexed at the reasons why this is such a foreign concept????
Does anyone out there still grind their own spices? Perhaps we are from the same galaxy???
