    I'm actually cooking my dinner now

    so I can eat early and sleep early. I'm glad that somehow I know how to cook especially some food that I like to have. Food just makes my day! :)

    Cooking is awesome it relieves my stress.

    Who thinks that men who cook are sexy as hell? I do. If we cooked together I don't think we would end up eating the food. Just each other!

    Tonight for dinner I am steaming cornish hens

    with some ginger and onions other spices! My daughter's favorite meal. I am then going to use the broth the chicken was cooked in as the water for steamed rice. It adds a nice texture to rice that is second to none!

    I live on a farm. I'm one of six children.

    We all have jobs to do. Mine is shopping and cooking. Actually I love it. Today I cooked salmon. I caught it on my way home from school. In Asda! They sell it with different butters. It's easy to cook! But everyone enjoyed.
