|Time to wake up|
So, I've decided that I need to start using this blog again. I morphed it into a place to just put down my thoughts. But I never really used it as much as I should. So, now, I am.
I'm beginning to get a bit concerned about what I am doing.
I love cooking as a professional. I like that I feel so comfortable in a kitchen. I think it's really what I am good at. I like that even after a full day of cooking, I can still come home and cook a meal from scratch. I love finding ingredients that make me think. I like that change is a constant with what I do.
I love that being a freelance cook has really forced me to become so well-rounded as a cook. I won't say that I cook something new every day. I definitely don't. I just like that I am forced to use all my skills to adapt to new surroundings, new products, and new people. Often. AND in a medium that I find stimulating.
But back to my concern: it's the middle of the dead time of freelance cooking. Very little catering goes on during February and beginning of March. I expected it. But I am still concerned about money. I work one or two days a week which does not generate a lot of cash. And I am suddenly very aware of it.
I am thankful that my partner is supportive of me. I am thankful that I have my severance from my last job to help tide me over. I just don't want to have to rely on that. I have decided to apply for some part-time work in other kitchens. Hopefully they pan out. I just don't want to go back to working in the front of the house of a retail establishment, even if it is with food. We'll see.
So, here goes. I'm going to start letting go of my thoughts here. Be wary. Later.
