Kitchen Mantras

• I will not be defeated by [insert food i.e. the pasta dough, a million peas].
I can do this I can do this I can do this (be a 32-year-old changing careers, trying to live out a dream).
Humility in all things, with confidence in the greatest thing.
Taste, taste, taste.
Look around, stay alert, and be curious about everything.
Focus and attend to every task as if my life depends on it.
It's all a means to an end - remember the final goal.

My favorite quote from The Empire Strikes Back is from Yoda: "No. Try not. Do or do not. There is no try."

Hey, thanks for the Star Wars quotes! The only line I can remember is "(heavy breathing) I am your father (heavy breathing)." I don't know if that helps me at all with this culinary endeavor.
