You might ask yourself, what on earth is wrong with a meal of salmon, broccoli, tomato, cheese and sweet potato fries?
Well, let me tell you. I burnt the fries.
So while I’m trying to get my healthy does of vitamin A in, I’m also getting an unwanted dose of carcinogens! Yuck!
I guess that’s what happens when you cook and exercise at the same time!
Oh well. I guess this is one example of when multitasking is better left undone.
And well, there’s my salmon. I cooked that the other day and reheated this one in the microwave. It’s chewier than the rubber of a car’s tire! Oops!
I didn’t mean to do that.
It makes me think that maybe I should be looking for some cooking classes.
It’s no wonder that not long ago my main source of nutrients was the drive-thru window or the convenience store food counter.
Don’t worry, I’m not upset about burnt fries and rubbery salmon. Actually I smell an opportunity here, and that’s simply to ramp up my cooking skills. Maybe that will take the form of a cooking class, or maybe it won’t.
But one thing is for sure, I’m not going back to relying on drive-thrus or convenience stores for my body’s fuel, so I better do something because the flavor of char is only good on foods like grilled chicken or marshmallows and there’s a reason that car tires aren’t meant to be eaten!
In any case, I think maybe now’s the time I should start watching more of Chef Meg’s cooking videos! I think they just might come in handy!
At least I learned one thing today. If you chop a tomato and put it on top of plain broccoli, you can completely skip salting the vegetables and they still get a small amount of a salty flavor to them because of the tomato. I just added the cheese because it’s more interesting that way, and it’s healthier than cheese sauce which has the potential of being a sodium disaster.
So anyway, I guess today’s dinner turned out to be a learning opportunity. I love it when I get to learn something new, but then of course my palate doesn’t always agree. Today’s burnt fries, they could be better!
