I don’t cook. Although I can cook, I simply don’t know what to cook, or how to put a balanced meal together.
Well, it’s time I change that. I’ve been married for over 15 years, and it is high time I figured this whole cooking thing out. Plus, I have two young daughters. If I don’t teach them to cook, who will?
The funny thing is, I’m a great baker. I love to bake. So, why can’t I cook? I think it’s because when I bake, I’m making just one thing (usually a dessert). Meals usually only have one dessert. But the main meal should consist of several options. There can be a salad to start the meal, a main dish, and one or two side dishes that include at least one vegetable. That’s simply overwhelming to me!
Are you in the same boat as me? Then come along as I struggle to feed my family meals that contain more than just one dish.
Are you an experienced cook? Then feel free to offer me advice, or to simply laugh at my efforts. You won’t hurt my feelings, since I already know what an awful cook I am!
