To Refrain or Not to Refrain?

The weekly Five Minute Friday word prompt for this week is “refrain!”

My hands deep in flour. The stove preheating. Cutting peaches and placing them in the cast iron skillet. Mixing the topping and pouring it over the peach mixture. 45 minutes later, a fresh peach cobbler comes out of the oven.

I couldn’t refrain from cutting into it. I cut a piece and placed it on my plate. I took a bite. The warm peach cobbler felt so yummy in my mouth. I can’t wait to eat some more later.

I’ve found so much joy in the kitchen in these days. I love baking and cooking. However, it sure is hard to refrain from all these yummy goodies when it’s just my cats and I in the house. I wish I could share with all of you!

I’m sure there will be more baking and cooking. Will you help me refrain from eating it all? Tell me I can freeze it. Or tell me that it is ok not to refrain during this time of uncertainty as long as I eat in moderation.

  1. Visiting as you FMF neighbor and friend. You made me hungry, girl! Don’t refrain from cooking and baking … especially if it gives you joy. We all need a little bit that right about now. Peace.

  2. I wish I could enjoy repast,
    I’ve memories of food,
    but the good times did not last,
    and I’m not in the mood.
    Some chicken cacciatore;
    dutch apple, a la mode;
    I made some people worry
    my belly might explode.
    But that is all behind me now,
    and baby, I must tell ya
    that these days I am lookin’ how
    they do back in Somalia.
    with an haute cuisine boast
    of applesauce on white-bread toast.

  3. Oh my! I’m right there with you Tara! Baking and eating! I guess there could be worse ways to spend out time!
