I feel as though it found me as all good things have a tendency to do. I’m not sure I was aware that I was looking, but now that it’s here – I think I was desperate.
I have cooked all my life. I spent my my teen years cooking next to my aunt at a youth camp in the Smoky Mountain. 200 meal, served family style, 3 times a day from June through August. I would rather cook for 40 than 4 and the recent years as I found myself cooking for 2, I had lost the fun.
As we are approaching 40 years of marriage and 60 years alive, our diets have changed. Eating less and lighter is on the menu. I was to a point that meat and veggies were just that, meat and veggies. Boring, healthy, not exciting, and a daily disappointment.
When my friend introduced me to a company named Epicure, life changed. Seasoning, spices and meal packets that make meat and veggies magical.
Magical is what I was looking for.
I signed up to be consult – started a little company and named it Seasoned – cause I couldn’t think of a reason why not – and today my big box arrived!!!
LET THE EATING BEGIN!!! I have seasonings and spices that are mouth watering, exciting and makes the old cook in me come alive. I can still make meat and veggies but now they have an Asian flair, a Mexican spice, and all kinds of cheesy love.
When was the last time you ate a spicy cheesy dip and an hour later noticed a remarkable happiness in your tummy? Not the ache and heaviness that typically follows such a dish. Maybe it’s the lack of sodium, sugar, artificial sweeteners, MSG, or the other 99 ingredients that will Never Ever be found in their food.
So here we go. A new adventure in food. A new found passion that I thought was long gone. An excitement to see how fun dinner for 2 can be. I want to see meat and veggies dance on the plate every night!
