“Cooking Crazy”

The Monday dinner hour – who would imagine that 7 women (well, 5 girls and 2 women) in a kitchen between the hours of 5&6 pm could actually be so fun?  Monday is the night I cook and 9 times out of 10 I’m frazzled and running late.  But here’s what’s so cool – 5 girls coming in asking “do you need help” turns in to a cacophony of chatter, laughter, chopping, washing dishes….. It’s so great.  Everyone talks about their day, from the 8 year old to the 34 year old, dinner gets on the table, and we’ve just learned a little more about each other and thought a little less about ourselves.

About Renaissance Girl

I moved to the Community with my family in 1988 when I was 10 - which gives away my current age! I am now a solemnly professed member - I work at Paraclete Press, the publishing arm of the Community and I love my job! I also sing in the choir Gloriæ Dei Cantores, and am a member of Elements Theatre Company and Spirit of America Band. As a Docent for the Church of the Transfiguration, I get to discover new things about the church every time I share it with someone else. When I'm not doing one of those activities, I love to spend time with my dog or my "extended family". There's a lot of variety in my life which keeps me energized - and I'm learning how to be more in the moment so whether I'm at a rehearsal, or making dinner in the kitchen with 5 girls, they all get 100% of me!
