What’s your love language?

Have you ever heard of the term “love language”? Love languages are described as the way you express your love and appreciation to your significant other. They are broken down into five categories: gifts, quality time, words of affirmation, acts of service and physical touch. I’m not sure where food falls in those categories, but it is 100% my love language.

I used to love spending time in the kitchen and would get excited thinking up dishes to make for my significant other. There is nothing that makes me happier than surprising the person I love or even a friend or my roommate with a home cooked meal.

 Since becoming single I haven’t been spending much time in the kitchen. I’ve been using Baltimore’s food scene as an excuse to get together to with friends and family. Trying new restaurants and revisiting my favorites has become something I do at least 3-4 times a week. Not only is my wallet hurting, but so is my waist line and it’s not as enjoyable to me as making the meal myself.

It’s just really hard to cook for one person. If it’s just me eating I’d rather go to Chipotle, pick up a bowl and call it a night. But I randomly decided to try a new recipe last week and found myself humming while cooking, gliding across the kitchen with ease and smiling. Just because I don’t have someone else to cook for doesn’t mean I can’t still spend time in the kitchen doing what I love. 

So for now, I’m fine tuning my skills in the kitchen so when the time comes to cook for two, I’m ready to give it my all.
