so here’s the truth,
i am not a very good cook.
i don’t really even enjoy cooking.
there, i said it.

it’s not something that comes naturally to me. 
i have no knack for “season to taste”

i don’t know what to do to make something that 
doesn’t taste great 
taste great. 

a few nights ago i overcooked the green beans
and i burned garlic bread.
it’s usually not that big of a deal 
(because i tend to do stuff like this all the time)
but when i messed up two of the three things we were supposed to be eating for dinner,
that’s when it’s uber lame.
big time lame. 

i can 
never ever 
remember that something is in the broiler. 
even if i have just put it in there.
two seconds earlier.
i have a hard time just sitting there, watching it cook.
it’s probably because i have a hard time being patient. 
and, i try to do too many things at one time in the kitchen 
(and in life)
and the end result is never good. 

(isn’t the fishie tucked in his shirt absolutely adorable?)

K would say i am not a very good cooker.

well, that’s not actually true 
because for some reason, she thinks that i can cook.
but she does think that people who cook are called cookers.
makes sense to me.

and you must read this incredible post about this very thing.
