Chicken Soup And Kitchen Fantasies....

I don't know what it is about cooking chicken and vegetable soup, but it makes me feel all homey and maternal. Feeling like I just want to take care of everybody.....And for some reason I always find myself house fantasizing as well....weird?? Quite possibly....

Perhaps its because we are so physically displaced at the moment, and my home making instincts are not satisfied....Whatever it is, I visualise the vegetable/herb garden I would love, my dream kitchen - island bench, hanging saucepans, exposed beams, wood floors, raw timber....oh, and a glorious spice rack (that, I have been fantasising about since I was a child!)...I don't want fancy, bring on rustic!

 Something like this *sigh*

 I also love cooking with lots of vegetables and herbs, and thinking about all the nutrients I am fueling our bodies with is rather exciting (not exciting exciting, just exciting)...oops, I am starting to sound like my mother! But really, good food is awesome!

Am I the only ones that gets bizarrely glorious cooking vibes???

  2. Love it. I'm the same. Boiling the chicken to make the stock... adding bits all afternoon... basically whenever I cook I feel that way, and yes I love that kitchen, I imagine it in an old homestead, bull-nose verandah wrapped around, cottage garden out the front, kitchen garden out the back, chickens further on.... Ahhhhh.....bliss.
