So my aim is to be able to cook at least 2 week’s worth of dinners by the end of the year, in case I do go away. Because as I get older, I realise offering to do the dishes just won’t cut it - I’m going to need to cook as well. As much as I hate it. And pretend that I don’t hate it.
But I went to write down all the meals I know tonight. And I realised how dismal my list actually is. I have a couple of things I could make, but even then, I have my ingredients including things such as “sauce” because I don’t know what kind it is. And I’m so technical that my method looks something like “Chop up veggies. Cook pasta. Cook mince. Add sauce to mince. Add veggies to mince. Add pasta to mince.” Not even kidding.
So I guess I will be paying more attention to the meals my mum and friends cook, and how they do it. Because I need to improve this list.
But I can’t ask because then they will think I like cooking, my mum especially, and she will make me help and try to talk to me about it and probably try to get me to make a meal for the family which I don’t want to do because my family is a bunch of unappreciative bitches (with the exception of my mum who will do the opposite and make a too-big deal of how wonderful it is even when it’s not)
