I don't cook unless there is an occasion, and by occasion I don't mean Christmas. I mean: Someone I work with might bring in a bunch of basil from their garden so I'll make pesto. Or my friends might beg me to have them over so that I'll make them a vat of Macaroni & Cheese with Sticky Toffee Pudding for dessert. Or another friend might be having a baby shower and will suggest that I create a special cocktail. Or I'll just go out for dinner five nights in a row. And... sometimes I'll come home from work and have popcorn for dinner. To me, these are all occasions. This is how I cook. And I plan to share these experiences, occasionally cooking.
