The Advantage of being The Cook
Monday, May 13, 2013
You know how when we were kids, and when we served our own kids, they'd really like something and plead "Make this dinner again!!"
Because I do my own cooking, I can do just that. I can have anything I want. I don't have to find a restaurant, I can make Indian, Italian, Mexican, Southern, whatever my little heart desires. I don't have to eat a pile of it because, as The Cook, I can make it any time I want. I can actually get up in the morning and wonder "What am I in the mood for?" and I can make it. I can make it lighter or the real thing. I can select the components any way I like; no trying to tell a waiter "no anchovies". I just don't put them on. I can please my hubby or my family by giving them exactly what they want. I am not subject to a restaurant cook. I AM the cook.
I don't get my way in a lot of things in this life, but I am the final word about what goes on my table every night.
