I don’t know about you all but I love the day time show The Chew! And I don’t even know how to cook! I love the cast and I tune in every day just to hear Michael laugh. He’s adorable! They have great ideas and recipes, and the best thing is they make it look really easy to learn to cook. The key word is look.
So here I am after thirty something years (I’m not telling exactly how many lol) I’ve decided to learn how to cook. I believe you should always challenge yourself, once we quit challenging ourselves life gets boring. We sit in a slump of the "same ol’, same ol’" day in and day out. It can get very monotonous. So spice things up! (Pun intended) And step outside of your comfort zone and do something you wouldn’t normally do, whether it’s exercising, cooking, or maybe even traveling. If you’ve never traveled before, maybe it’s time to give it a go!
Never stop trying new things. It’s good for you, healthy, and keeps life interesting.
So, the last time my mother tried to teach me to cook I was nine and staring outside at the boys (my brother and his friends) playing football. *Sighs* I wanted to be outside, too. Needless to say my poor mother tried so hard to make me into a "girl" by putting me in ballet, modeling, and etiquette class...sadly I don’t think it paid off too much. LOL. By the time I was a teen she finally gave up her efforts and I was allowed to finally be myself, which is now a crazy assortment of both girl and boy traits. But I look back and really wished I had paid more attention to a few things like cooking. After twenty years of cooking out of a box my kids would’ve appreciated it too.
It’s really funny because my oldest says that he really appreciates that I’ve decided to learn to cook now that he’s moving out. Love that kid! Now where in the world did he learn such sarcasm?
So now dear readers I am sharing my mess of a goal with you all. My attempts thus far have sent my neighbors into a panic and called the fire department, sent my hubby into hiding and my four year has learned to “Sea food” by spitting it all out. LOL. Please note my sad attempts at homemade sugar cookies to the right here. And don't laugh at my horrible attempt at decorating said cookies. So please help me Obi Wan, you’re my only hope. I need some simple, easy to understand recipes for a beginner! Can anyone help a girl out here?
