Some meal prep help is alway helpful
Do not trust a recipe that asks you to to make meatballs with quinoa. NEVER EVER AGAIN!!

I have a friend who is a maverick at making friends. One on one, she seems incredibly shy but I love her attitude to making friends and how deliberate she is about it all. So when I think to myself that I would like to make friends, I always think of some kind of organised activity that brings people together on the regular.
When I think of this though I always wonder how I would go about starting one because it involves putting myself out there in some way or another which is not exactly my thing. But, if / when I get over this hurdle, these are some things I would like to do:
Listen to a key podcast each month and then meet and discuss
Start an article club – pick
a Longread article and then chat about it Pick a cuisine and then assign various parts of the meal (starter, protein, desserts, salad) to different people and thus have a supper club or a
cookbook club if you are fancier. Good old Book club
Board games with a group of friends, I really have mine eye on
this one. A cheese/ wine tasting club.
Do you live in Joburg, would you be keen to do any of this with me and meet some new people?

I am convinced someone might one day want to write my biography so I am cataloguing my life in this blog, journals and keeping significant letters and cards.
I sometimes cook like I am presenting a cooking show online. This involves preparing all the ingredients in advance and sometimes explaining what it is I am doing.
I play back all voice notes I send to try and determine whether I do have a good voice for radio. I am not sure I do.

I love to cook, however,I find that there are certain things that I just never cook or make from scratch. Or if I do, then I just never stray past the initial recipe.
So what are some things that I would love to cook that I don’t currently?
Are there things in the kitchen that you often shy away from attempting?
