The writing window

It has been a while since I posted something outside an Instagram photo on here (yesterday’s mini post about an upcoming date doesn’t count because it contradicts what I just wrote).

The wedding is done and dusted, so I sit myself down to start writing the massive backlog I created myself as I didn’t slow down my eating out to stay at home planning the wedding but rather procrastinated from the process by going out even more. Writing about food has to be done during a certain window, when you are not too full to feel sick at looking at more photos of food and when you’re not ravenous and staring at pictures of food just pushes you towards feeling hangry. Today I happened to be hungry while I started writing; I had a butterflied rosemary and mint lamb from Jordo’s chop shop cooking in the oven and I set the timer for just over an hour.

I typed in the title of my next post and I started getting really hungry. I instinctively head towards the kitchen and check the timer that I had only just set only to realise that there is still quite a wait before I can eat. I tell myself to stop checking but this happens several more times while the timer slowly counts down.

The moral of this story is: plan meals better  to avoid this happening to you and to also let you know that writing my next post took a lot longer than anticipated.

Finally cooked: rosemary and mint Cowra lamb from Jordo’s chop shop.
