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.
