Kitchen Witch Challenge - Day 5

catching up...

5. My Favorite Kitchen Task

Stirring.

The simple act of mixing one thing into something else to create a new third thing. I'm lefthanded, so I usually stir widdershins (counter-clockwise). Some will tell you that's the "wrong" way. That mixing should be done deosil (clockwise), to follow the sun.

I say, if stirring widdershins is natural for me, then that's how I'll do it. I like to stir. If I had to concentrate on going in the wrong direction, it would become tiring and less fun.

  1. I love this. Not because I cook (I don't), but I appreciate the zen of it.

    1. For sure. If all there was to cooking was stirring, I'd be cooking all the time!
