Yesterday, when I got home from work, my plan was to clean my apartment after Melly and I went for a walk. It needs to be cleaned up a little and yesterday would have been a good day for it. Well, after the walk, my thoughts went something like this: "F*ck that, I'm drinking wine tonight." And that's what I did.
Around 8:30 pm, I decided that I wanted to try and make this almond butter that I have been thinking about for a while. I had all the ingredients and everything and nothing much else going on, so I started. An hour and a half later, I finished my cooking project and started cleaning up. By the way, if you want a good arm toning exercise, get a manual food processor. My butter turned out to be more of a spread, but it's still tasty. If I ever want to make a really blended product, I need to get an electric processor.
I noticed last night, a trend of sorts. This happens often, I thought. I always get the urges to cook or bake or try a new recipe later in the evening during the week. It's never: "I don't have plans for Sunday, maybe I should try that recipe." Nope. When I made bread, I started the whole process at 6 pm on a Wednesday or Thursday night. I even made a loaf this past Monday. When I made frozen dog treats, it was a Tuesday night. The breakfast cookies were made on a Monday evening. Seriously, I think all of my recipes were made/tried on weeknight evenings. Even my cakes. Huh. What does that say about me?
It probably doesn't mean anything except that I get my creative urges during the week when time is limited and energy tends to dip. I don't think I have ever made a wreath or some other craft project on the weekends either. At least not many if any.
So, I ask you, do you get creative urges at odd times? Do you have a tendency that makes you go, hmm?
