Fun Food-Related Activities to Do at Home

Fun Food-Related Activities to Do at Home

If you've recently realized that "eating out" is one of your only hobbies, you're not alone. There are so many great restaurants and eateries near the Parkside apartments in Redmond, WA, that it's easy to forget that you can create your own foodie experience at home. Here are three fun food-related activities you can do from the comfort of home.

Have an Indoor Picnic

Everyone loves a good picnic, and having one indoors means no pesky flies or muddy grass. Whip up some of your favorite picnic foods like potato salad, fresh fruit, and build-your-own sandwiches. Then spread out your picnic blanket in the living room and enjoy! You can up the ambiance even more by playing a "park sounds" background noise playlist on YouTube.

Go Global

Satisfy your travel bug by cooking foods from another country or culture. Pick a country you've always wanted to explore (or one you have fond memories of visiting) and do a quick recipe search to find some of the most common or popular dishes. Then create a themed menu and enjoy a meal that will have you dreaming of your next vacation!

Grow Your Own

It's a fact that homegrown produce tastes better, and growing your own food can be a fun and satisfying activity to do at home. Whether you've got an entire outdoor raised bed to work with or just a few pots on a window sill, you can find something that will work for your space. If you're just starting out, try planting herbs like basil, dill, rosemary, or thyme. They can be grown by a sunny window and will complement many dishes. If you have a little more space, try some veggies like cherry tomatoes, zucchini, or yellow squash. You can read more about indoor gardening for beginners here.

There's plenty of activities for foodies to try right in their own Parkside kitchen. If you'd like to learn more about living in our apartment community, don't hesitate to contact us.
