Where does inspiration come from?
It may come from a photo or a story. It can come from something someone else wrote or did.
Maybe it comes from something you pass every day, or on just the right day.
Inspiration can be in the unusual or the ordinary.
We usually think of inspiration being related to artistry — a great performance, a work of art, a novel or poem that moves you. Have you ever thought about inspiration in the kitchen?
Oh, wait . . . inspiration is reserved for great chefs, right?
NO! Absolutely not!
You can find inspiration in the kitchen just as well as any chef you’ve ever heard of. Just look around you.
Open your pantry and think about what you have that might taste good together. Or do the same thing with your refrigerator. Or maybe the grocery aisle.
I used to play a game with one of my best friends for his birthday cake. I would ask what kind of cake he wanted and he would start listing things he wanted in it. The challenge was to figure out how to combine all the ingredients into something wonderful.
Try that with someone in your family or one of your friends. See what happens.
I bet you will find inspiration! (Remember, Sponge Bob came from somewhere!)
