Here Is How To Be More Creative Day 6.
The kitchen. It's full of ways to make us more creative. It provides limitless tools and ingredients to combine and subtract our way to a new experience. Food can change us in so many ways. Emotionally it can bring comfort. Mentally it can expand our thinking. Most importantly it can make a creative leap in ourselves and the world around us.
Today, let's expand our creativity by being in the kitchen. Let's make something new and taste how getting uncomfortable develops a creative part of us.
Yesterday, was National Strawberry Shortcake day. After some research, I found a decidedly delicious looking recipe for vegan gluten-free strawberry shortcake on the blog Minimalist Baker. I haven't attempted to make strawberry shortcake or vegan pastries, ever. However, today, I put on my apron and headed to the kitchen. In the first 5 minutes, I had to put my creative thinking to the test when it turned out I didn't have all the ingredients needed to follow the recipe. There I was in the kitchen with the oven ablaze, rummaging through my pantry looking for something to substitute for one of the key ingredients.
Well, it turned out that I used the wrong ingredient and my strawberry shortcake was less than terrific. However, using my creative thinking to solve my recipe dilemma only strengthened my problem-solving skills.
So, let's get cooking and creating.
Until tomorrow Creative Cooks.
