Wow, this is hard. Eventually I wind up thinking about cooking anyway. I guess I like to read, even things that aren't about food. And play with the dog.

Okay, I will put a more serious answer. Watch the food network, read cookbooks, spend time on DC....oh really serious? All that plus spending time with my wonderful hubby and two pups, hanging out with our youth group (having them over to bake cookies), walking when my leg allows it and listening to music.

When I am not cooking I am either a) at work, b) reading a book or magazine c) walking the dogs or cuddling with them, d) on my computer goofing off, e) if it is nice out, I'm outside walking or gardening, f) doing most of these non-cooking things with my hubby, g) I'm usually thinking about or planning what I'm gonna cook next.

hanging with my family (running after my granddaughter), reading, and gardening
The only difference between a "cook" and a "Chef" is who cleans up the kitchen.

Read, fly fish, walk the dog, eat, think about cooking, grocery shop, eat...
If you can't put it on a plate, it probably isn't all that important.
