DAY 365+51

in my kitchen 

you will find sun rays, 

shelves filled with boxes of lasagna sheets,
unmatched pieces of chinaware, jars with spices
and two or three bottles of different types of olive oil

biscuits, dark chocolate and many blends of tea:
black chai, earl grey, english breakfast... you name it
infusion sachets and crackers

seeds, nuts, herbs and dietary supplements
honey, agave syrup, my old glassware, bottles of red wine
fruits, veggies and chips packs

lots of bowls, big and small; white and colored,
many utensils (like baking molds) that I rarely utilize,
beautiful, embroidery, serviettes
that I use only from time to time
and when I want to photograph some still lifes

it´s not a the kitchen of a gourmet,
it´s not the kitchen of a perfect house wife,
it´s not the kitchen of an expert in healthy eating,
(even when sometimes I secretly envy those who are so)

it´s the kitchen of a person who has many things to do,
who prefers to pile up the dishes in the sink
and go outside to capture a tree blooming or read a book,

it´s the kitchen of a person who has finally understood that eating is about enjoying, about sharing, about spreading gentleness,
about finding light in the ordinary things
not about being conform with any established standard related to diet 


So in my kitchen you will also find conversations and snacks while cooking, 
fresh bread and marine salt,
simple meals made with a dose of love


...and some paws prints of this little apprentice
who curiously observes what happens around



Simple things Sunday

Your kitchen sounds a lot like mine. One thing that is almost always there is fresh bread, the darker the better. And hibiscus tea!
