One of the biggest things Zach & I do together is cook. It's one of the only times we're each guaranteed to be focusing on the now. I love cooking with Zach because he's so creative & it's just nice to spend time with each other coming together on a yummy meal.
A lot of the time I'm surprised by how delicious the food he's made is. Sometimes it's totally new, sometimes its just a tweak on an old recipe. I love when he comes up with an new idea & just gets to cooking. He's wonderful at peaking in the cupboard & fridge and then creating a meal with what we have. Grocery shopping involves a lot of idea bouncing on what we'll make for dinner. If we aren't in the kitchen on Sunday's drinking wine & cooking, you can find us at the grocery store deciding on what to make the following week/weekend.
Spending time together, focused on a non-stressful common goal is great for us. We don't have to butt heads on anything, we don't have to make too many decisions, we're just working together on good food! I love that it's a creative place where Zach takes the reins & I just trust.
Isn't there a saying about good food bringing people together? It sure does work for us!
