I was all gung ho about getting stuff for my kitchen and learning how to really cook.
My kitchen now has a lot of items it didn’t have before…like a pizza cutter and grater and different kinds of vinegar and even olive oil.
I have even used some of that stuff. But it has become clear to me that I will NEVER be a gourmet. And probably never a really good cook either.
I just don’t have the enthusiasm, or even the interest it would take to be really good. I love reading other peoples posts about cooking and some of the cooking shows on TV are really cool.
The idea of great cooking, and great presentation of course, is really cool…but actually doing it? Unless one of you really good cooks comes to my house to fix dinner someday…it is never gonna happen in my kitchen.
At least not this year. Maybe next year? People do change…
How about you? Do you fix fancy dinners that look great? Have dinner parties that you fix yourself? At what age did you start?
