Food is not necessarily happy when I sing while cooking: my dogs are delighted to join in and a surreal howling contest commences as soon as I utter the first note. I find this hilarious, however, that’s only my opinion. I’ve had houseguests run for their lives or call 9-1-1 because they were worried my house had been invaded by a bunch of hungry wolves – “It’s OK officer, they’re only Huskies and wouldn’t kill a fly; they always harmonize during my singing lessons.”
I’ve talked previously about my food’s secret ingredient being LOVE, however, even though happy usually occurs when love is in the air, the same cannot be said of all people’s singing abilities. If it was always meant to describe how much love is present, I’m afraid some would experience something close to loathing if they were serenaded by the likes of moi and the pooches.
So yes, a song from the heart can put you in the right mood for cooking but please, keep it to yourself (and your pets) because even though making a joyful noise is encouraged at church, the neighbors will most likely NOT appreciate it and even refuse your invitation to dinner once they hear you sing to the food. It’s like talking to the plants; once someone sees you do it, your name gets quickly placed on the waiting list at the local institution.

So many songs have been inspired by foodstuff! That’s not to say that all of us should come out of the closet ~ I mean shower~ with our mouth still in action. Wikipedia defines Singing: The act of producing musical sounds with the voice. Hint: If what comes out could likely be misconstrued as noise… just take this as a friendly reminder: Some of us are fortunate to be hard of hearing! J
Salut to all the amateur chefs out there and remember: “Silence is Golden”.
Better be a Little "S" than a Little Less! J
