I need to learn how to cook.
My two favorite TV characters, Carrie Bradshaw and Rachel Greene couldn’t cook at all….they also never got married. (Carrie got married during the movie, but that doesn’t count). That cannot be me. I know how to do a lot of things, but I think learning to cook is making a major investment in my future. Why be content with a major fixable flaw like being clueless in the kitchen?
I have all the supplies that I need (I think) and all that is left is for me to start. I’m going to invest in a George Foreman grill and I’m going to rent a cookbook from the library. It looks like this is the best choice:
Don’t get me wrong. It’s not like I’ve never cooked anything. I’ve made mashed potatoes from scratch and macaroni and cheese from the box a few times when I was younger. That was under my mom’s watchful eye though.
I want to be able to make a delicious full meal — including meat. In the past, I’ve been afraid of cooking meat because I didn’t want to get E. Coli. I have no clue where that irrational fear came from, by the way.
It’s strange that I don’t cook because my mom cooks and my sister does too. Where did I miss the cooking class?
Doesn’t matter now though because I’m going to start cooking. Today.
Here’s hoping I don’t burn the complex down 🙂
