This weeks story telling theme is: WHAT DID YOU THINK YOU WOULD BE BETTER AT BY NOW?
I’ve never really been interested in cooking, ok anything domestic, but I did have this illusion (fine delusion) that once I moved out of home and started being able to make my own decisions, I would magically be awesome at it. I am after all, the Queen of Awesome. I could go on about how much I suck but this video sums it up.
My cooking has improved slowly over the last couple of years. Having to feed a small child means that my not eating for days and then scoffing a box of mac cheese was made redundant. The world of easy internet access means that I am slowly improving my bag of tricks aka throw this shit together and hope it works.
Papa Devil is one of those arsey cooks. He throws stuff together that you wouldn’t think would have a hope in hell of tasting like anything edible. Then BAM! awesome tasting food, it rarely looks good but it’s usually to die for. When I trie to recreate that same effect…it looks crap and it tastes worse, so I stick to the recipe books and hope for the best.
Having a toddler does nothing for your self esteem in the cooking department. Matt and his cravat have nothing on a fussy eater. Slaved over the stove for the last 2 hours to provide a tasty, nutritionous meal for your little darling? 9 times out 10 they will declare it yucky and proceed to eat something disgusting 10 minutes after dinner…usually off the floor.
What did you think you would be better at by now?
