The act of a countdown serves to focus and prepare me for the main event.
I use it as a reminder of how far I have come toward a goal and as a niggling little nag when I haven’t finished things in time.
But to use it most effectively I turned it into a spreadsheet like my friend, Wendy.
With this I am ready to go for the timing of the prep, cooking and serving.
Now to plug in all the recipes and create my shopping lists.
