But, if anyone is reading my blog - do any of you love staring at the colors of the vegetables you're chopping and cooking with? I mean, when you're making a salad, or a sandwich, or soup, or what have you, do any of you consider how pretty the end result will be?
I get so much pleasure out of taking in the colors and the color combinations of the food I'm preparing. It seems a little zen, but when I'm chopping celery and carrots and peppers on a big chopping block with the sun streaming in the window, I can't help but soak it all in, and those moments are the simplest pleasures that make up a happy life, if you stop to appreciate them - in my opinion.
But then, I'm a total romantic. I don't expect everyone to get lost in an insignificant detail like celery green.
