Waste Not, Want Not

If you needed a reason to stay home, despite the current climate, turn social distancing to your favor. After all, your place is a Safe Haven. Now may be the time to expand your creativity in the kitchen by being budget-friendly, challenging your cooking skills, and focus your energy on healthy alternatives. Take a look in the pantry, the refrigerator, and the freezer. People buy food they like in the first place. Right? Have fun when pulling meals together. Pretend you’re a celebrity chef and make cooking a choice of entertainment. Display some of your placemats, napkins, and dishes to keep it fun and interesting. Some of my posts have been favored by the “Food Network” on Twitter (Snapshotsincursive @DornaGail) as well as Ina Garten’s The Barefoot Contessa, on Instagram (gail _dorna). You can even find me on Pinterest at Gail Dorna. I’d love to connect with you there as well. I also met Chef Michelle Tribble of Hell’s Kitchen reality cooking show. Fun times. Experience different flavors and textures one bite at a time. Catch a glimpse of “Eating My Way Through the Alphabet: Waste Not, Want Not!” This remarkable journey of the palate is unique because it gives me a few moments with you. Thanks very much to all of my guests and followers on http://snapshotsincursive.com for the uplifting support, award nominations, and moving words of encouragement. As of this writing, WordPress has acknowledged that I’m on a 1853-day streak. Let’s keep it going!

    • You and I agree. I kept “saving” my Lenox China for the family gatherings (that never happened for one reason or another), so I sold it before moving to Florida. 🌴🌊

  1. 1853-day writing streak? Wellll, that’s a little tricky, doncha think? I mean, all the blogs are great, but quite a few repeats this year, verbatim and even the same pics? But selecting and sorting does count for something. In any case, congrats on 1,853 days of blogging. I had to take a year off in 2018 to prevent burn-out.

    • You’re right. Real life has a way of moving in and changing the ability to spend hours on end creating and posting recipes. I did the best I could considering I dislocated my right shoulder, had no use for basically 5 months during a kitchen remodel, and then sold everything I owned to move 1200 miles away and live in a hotel for 9 months until my house was built. Now I’m unpacking and hanging art to make the house a home while recycling, reposting, and blogging without interruption. WordPress told me today that I am actually on a 2698-day streak. But there is a light on the horizon. I have begun cooking again, so stay tuned for new material. Thanks for checking in and commenting on my material. We need more followers like you.

      • Your blogs are well worth reading again! Besides, I do not think I was following you in 2019, so don’t let me give you too hard a time! Keep the memories coming as long as you want! 👍

      • I actually went back to the 1970’s in my Betty Crocker Recipe File last night to make a pork chop dinner. 🤣 Old favorites never die. Have a blessed day. 🌟✨💫
