Anyone who knows me well, is very aware that I hate cooking. In fact I really don’t enjoy food much at all. I know it’s terrible, but seriously I really don’t understand how people can get so excited about food. To me, eating is just another task that takes up precious time.
Of course my children are completely unaware of this bizarre side of me, and I plan to keep it that way so please be kind and shhhhhhhhhh keep this between ourselves. I don’t want them thinking that food is not important or a bad thing – we are all aware that children are self concious as it is and so we don’t need to add in the whole food issue.
So back to my cooking issue. I won’t lie – I have no objection to making an entire dinner – from a box. Yes I “cook” packaged food and use the microwave (GASP!). I have no idea how some mothers are able to cook these elabrate meals and from scratch no less. I really wish I could and I am really jealous, but again its the whole lack of desire here that is kind of holding me back. However, that is about to change!
One of my new years resolutions was to try to cook more for my children. So I have decided that I am going to try a new meal once a week and report back to you. I will write a post each week on what type of meal I attempted to cook, how badly (or not) I burnt a bit, half or the whole meal, and of course whether or not my children attempted to eat it and if they hated it or loved it.
Please feel free to send me any recipes or family meals you think I may want to try and I promise I will try not to burn it or destroy it:)
Until next time,
