I’m thinking of food…

Posted on September 25th, 2012

I’ve started reading cooking blogs and I’m kind of becoming obsessed about them. I even downloaded “Mastering the Art of French Cooking Volume I.” Granted, I just wanted to learn how to make an omelette, but still. I downloaded a Julia Child book. The horror of this cannot be overstated. Cooking for me is simply a way to get the fire department to our home. I once told my son he would know when the chicken was ready because the smoke detector would go off. And I was serious.

But I am thinking of cooking.

It’s not my fault. Everything on a cooking blog looks yummy. I love reading about cakes and cookies and what everyone ate for dinner last night (conversely, I hate Twitter because I feel like all I read is what everyone ate for dinner last night, so go figure). Anyway, the pictures are wonderful. And all the care that goes into those dinners. I mean, it’s not like picking up Taco Bell takes a lot of thought. Or good china for that matter. Or even utensils at all, now that I think about it – and when I say utensils, I’m not talking about a spork.

But after reading a cooking blog I get that urge to light up the stove and boil the hell out of something. But then I remember that while many people have pictures of super yummy dinners on their blog, I have this picture on my blog:

Yes, these are potatoes. And a prime reason why I shouldn't cook.

And this one:

If you recall, this is food my dogs won't even eat.

Yeah, probably I should stop reading and start doing something I’m really good at…like watching Real Housewives reruns.

    Try some basic recipes. Crock pot meals. The local Community centers, Jr Colleges, and some craft stores (like Michael’s) have cooking courses. I have done a couple of those. I can send you some really easy recipes that will make you look like a kitchen queen, that slaved all day on a meal. Oh, and there are times when my dog (who eats EVERYTHING) won;t touch what I drop or put down for him. Usually it’s because he wants something else akin to a child refusing to eat anything besides mac n cheese and pizza bagels.

    It’s Angela, from sanitywaitingtohappen.blogspot.com! I found your blog again! You were the first mom blog I ever read….a few years ago. I ran across you again on Networked Blogs a few minutes ago and you’re still just as funny and honest as I remember. Thanks for the laugh. I can relate to your cooking woes.
