The irony being that I am not even a great Tea maker. I am a great match maker though(If that helps maintain my self-esteem). However, that’s not my issue right now.
Introducing my new enemy (after Sun ) : The Cooking Monster !!!
I can be (read: am) a total mess in the kitchen. I don’t know why though. My mom and sister love cooking and as a matter of fact my dad is a great cook too. Though my mom doesn’t trust his cooking instincts that much (She has to clean all the mess after he cooks) Lol but he does really make delicious mutton that I could die for. You can know more about my mom and dads cooking adventure in Why Women Prefer To Do Their Own Work?
This and many other reasons is why my sister always tells me I am adopted. No I am not. Trust me. Just because I am younger she has always got the upper hand on me. As a child she used to tease me saying that I am the maids daughter and I being the stupid one always fell for her words and start crying. Now that I am clever enough I know that she is the adopted one. 😛 Anyways I don’t have much to complain. I always had a happy ending to my story. Of course she used to get into trouble because of teasing me(to my delight). It turned out I wasn’t so stupid after all. But I was, I am and maybe I will forever be a terrible cook.
There have been times when I left the burner on and forgot about it totally and saved by those near me only to get scolded. (Thankfully).
The other day I cooked fish. Yes you heard it right and yes it’s summer here. I was all sweaty and my parents were (oh so sympathetic) that their daughter was out their cooking for her survival. I don’t need sympathy. I need a cook!!! Period.
It’s not like I can’t cook at all. I just don’t want to. I don’t get the feeling of eternity and happy ending from inside. I have more bruises from oil than I have from anything else that I love to do. If I do feel like cooking something special or just on experimental basis, it’s just a one day thing or a one night thing. No strings attached. I can follow the recipes well enough to bring out something edible but each and every time I am in the process of cooking I feel I need to have a chair and definitely an AC to cool me off. I can cook while sitting. I know there are kitchen rules but can we just include a chair in it? Tell me will that make the process any harder or easier because I clearly have no idea whatsoever.
I know for a matter of fact that there are people who love cooking and it acts as a stress buster. Are you one of them? For me it is just another way of annoyance. Well most of the time when I am just hangry. I love eating but hate cooking. Does that make sense? Do you belong to this category too?
For all the great chefs and well Moms out there do you have any tips for me to maybe become a cook someday? I would definitely like to know if we can include a chair and AC in the kitchen too. That might solve my problem. At least I think so. Don’t you?
PS : I did discover I am more of a starters and dessert person. I can cook small and easy things that would serve great as a starter and of course you don’t need much playing with oil while making dessert. So I feel safe. The main course on the other hand requires time, dedication and a warrior outfit (which I don’t have ) and it seems I am not ready for this serious commitment yet.
For all the hopeless cooks out there,
I Heart You All <3
