The one thing that I did not do much of last year was cook. As many know, or wonder, how do I constantly go out and eat, almost on a daily basis. There were many months last year where it honestly felt like I was at a different restaurant a day, so going forward to this year, I hope to cook more. For people who know me, not many know that I can actually fend for myself in the kitchen!
Some think that my cooking would be either packaged based, frozen based, or can based, but if I actually put my mind to it, I can cook a formidable meal. I was a little rusty going into this year, as the last time I truly prepared dinner it was over a year ago. Even my own mother did not realize that I can hold my own with a wok, and given the creativity in my mind when I am at a grocery store, I can think of new fixings.
Cooking at home, and having meals where we don’t go out can be a way to conserve on funds (which we are doing), but can also be some intimate times of spending time with people. I have a significant other who is willing to try my food, and I also do encourage some feedback into what I can do better to improve on this ‘craft’. I will say there needs to be more polish to cooking my meals, but it feels good to do this again, and I look forward now to cook again.
My partner, she is, in my mind a great cook, I hope that I can pull my own weight in the kitchen!
