Post 22 of HEIA: Creativity
Today's creativity is all about food and comes from Sandra of Section 89. Try not to drool over her creations.

Creativity to me is a sack full of fresh seasonal vegetables and fruit I’ve just set on the kitchen table to unload after a Saturday morning trip to the farmer’s market. The crisp apples smell like the earth, and taste like autumn; I wonder what I’ll make of them this week. Slice them wafer thin and pair them with some buttery soft lettuce, toasted pecans, and a maple vinaigrette, caramelize them in a bit of sweet butter and browned sugar and crown them with a pastry crust and bake until it all melds in to the perfect tarte tatin, or maybe chopped and cooked down with a bit of fresh cider and cinnamon to make applesauce?

You could say I like to cook. I always have. For me, choosing ingredients and figuring out what I want to do with them is one my most satisfying creative activities. The point of beginning doesn’t have to take days, weeks or years. I can dream something up and be eating that epiphany in a short amount of time.
