The Things We Do Together // Good Food Brings Us Closer

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!

What brings you & your significant other - or your family - closer?  What do you do together that lets you focus on the now?

  1. My husband doesn't venture into the kitchen too much - which I actually don't mind, I love baking and I'm coming to love meal creating and adventuring for main dishes a lot more then I thought I would. Estate sale picking every Saturday is something we love doing together, we've actually both admitted we'd be poor at picking without each other - we always see things the other misses and if there's something the other is doubtful over the other one will just buy it anyway haha.
