Cooking Confession

Looking For Food by foundimagination
My Mom's been helping me cook some meals as I've been here. It's one of the things I asked her to do with me, since I'm not known for my cooking skills mainly because I don't know how to make a lot of things...mainly because I don't.

So I've made a few new things from scratch and while I'm probably supposed to be very proud of myself and looking forward to making them again when I head back to my place, the truth of it is that I don't enjoy it.

I have some friends who love to cook. They love to cook and entertain and make food and serve food and they love making people happy by cooking.


I make the stuff, I cook the stuff, I serve the stuff and it's all kind of... meh.

My Mom even said the other night how much enjoyment she gets cooking and feeding us.

I just don't know if this is my thing.

I admire people who enjoy cooking, and I love to eat their tasty, lovingly prepared meals, but I don't get much enjoyment from being the one doing the cooking.

So I guess I hope I find a man who does.

Or else I'll just keep eating at my friends' houses.

Cooking...yuck. I never liked cooking either. The joke between The Husband and me is we'd have tortellini and Coke every night if I did the cooking. Luckily he really loves to cook and he's great at it.

Cooking isn't everyone's thing. I personally enjoy it when I get a good end result, but I know not everyone feels this way. My advice (as someone who is slooowly getting back into cooking regularly) would be to find some really quick and easy recipes that you enjoy. If you like pork, this is a great pork tenderloin recipe:

It takes about 5 minutes of work, and it's a great end result. Mmmm. And frozen potato wedges work just as well as the garlic mashed potatoes for a side.
