Can we just take a moment and discuss how ungrateful family members can be when it comes to what you’ve cooked for them? Here was the first part to my two part declaration of how I hate to cook in case you want to read it: Cooking to me is like cleaning the toilet.
Below is a list of items that have been pissed on by at least 1 or more family members at some point. Not because they weren’t cooked properly but because the below did not resemble a chicken nugget.
- Mashed potatoes
- Macaroni and Cheese (oh sorry, let me be clear: non-Kraft Macaroni and Cheese)
- Filet Mignon
- Chicken Parmesan (this is ironic to me as it is a gigantic chicken nugget on top of spaghetti)
- Spaghetti (this has been removed though now everyone likes spaghetti)
- Bacon (like spaghetti, now everyone likes spaghetti)
In addition to hating to cook and my children having the discerning palate of a hobo, my husband grew up with a mother that not only loved to cook but would use sour cream, cream cheese or both as the basis for all recipes. In turn, telling my husband we are having grilled chicken and vegetables is like telling Rob Kardashian we are having grilled chicken with grilled vegetables. I’d imagine the reaction to be equal disappointment.
My mother in law has learned the hard way that I do not like to cook. Over the years, she has asked that I bring one of the following to family events:
- Orange Juice
- Sister Schubert Frozen Rolls
- Brick of cream cheese
- Tub of sour cream
Obviously I can’t screw this up though I have brought the “wrong” Sister Schubert Rolls and have paid for it with comments throughout the day.
So how about you? Do you like to cook? Do you hate it? If you like it, what is it that you like about it?
