Day 5. Food: What’s for breakfast? Dinner? Lunch? Or maybe you could write a poem about that time you met a friend at a cafe.

In real life sometimes we cannot observe the results of our actions at that moment, we need to work or practice more due to achieve what we want. But when it comes to cooking, I think we gain the dopamine of creating something we need at the shortest time. You can see the result quicker than other things. You enjoy creating something with your five senses.
Let’s start with main vegetables, onion and garlic. You can smell the pungent smell and a little burn in your nose when you peel them. Then you put them in a pan with hot frying olive oil. You can hear them cracking and next it comes patatoes, my favourite veggie. You can still smell and feel the soil that created it, everytime you touch. The choice of the spices for the most amazing vegetable in the earth are endless. You can mix them with blackpepper, red pepper and salt (if your choice is basic for tonight), and different colors of peppers you can just watch and enjoy the color combinations while you are cutting and putting them into the baking tray. Waiting for them to cook and make yourself a plate by placing the patatoes at the bottom, topped by soft peppers and the onion and garlic. Nothing will be complete without homemade yoghurt and tomato sauce. You grate the tomato while you smell the amazing freshness of it. After preparing a little saute in the pan, you place the yoghurt and tomato saute on the top. Last but not least , you can enjoy the taste of your meal and sharing it with loved ones can increase the taste of your quick art.
We have just prepared probably the most basic dinner in the world but your 5 senses and your stomach will thank you for that. Since we have been the creatures who have been consuming their food by producing or finding them for many years, because of the obligation of our fast life brought by “modernity”, we often consider that preparing our meal is more of a chore than a therapy method. This can be sometimes true but not always because there is a saying “You are what you eat” which sounds very cliche but actually very meaningful. We can start taking care ourselves by starting to cook our food.
So tonight, for dinner, there is a basic vegetable saute and a cooking philosophy. This reading caption is written for your 5 senses and the frontal lobe of your brain 😊
Next Day: Eye Contact. Write about two people seeing each other for the first time.
