    I'll Do All the Cooking

    I've been cooking virtually my whole life. I come from a family where most of the men know how to cook. I like it so much that I considered going to chef's school. What always stops me is I worry that if it becomes my job then I won't want to do it in my leisure life. I love...

    I really enjoy cooking a roast dinner,

    then watch my boys devour it as though they had never been fed.

    My challenge this year (new yr resolution) has

    been to prepare ALL of our meals without ANY genetically modified ingredients. So far, so good! Now, of course, Jon has eaten at the pub quite often and we've eaten food prepared by others. So, perhaps we've ingested a small amount of gmo. But the amount has been minimal...

    I made ramen in a frying pan.

    It thickened up nicely and I like it more than boiling.

    Last few nights I've had an unexpected guest

    and her kids stay over taking over what feels like the whole house. In the past weve always been really competitive where cooking is concerned, but tonight was really different. (maybe we've grown up). We cooked together over a bottle of wine. Pan fried scallops with chorizo and...

    I tried to make a gourmet meal with Ramen

    noodles. I used the shrimp flavor kind. I cooked it, added shrimp and red pepper flakes and minced scallions, garlic seasoning and pepper. I thought it was pretty yum!

    The stereotype of the divorced middle-aged man

    is lots of prepackaged or take-out food. I like not being the stereotype, and making myself real food. (Last night was roast pork and corn on the cob.) Sometimes life is too much and I'm just too tired (I'm still rebuilding my life), so I'll resort to something from the store...

    Since my mom works at the moment,

    I do most of the housework which involves cookings: My speciality is Chilli Con Carne, Spaghetti Bolognese and Lamb Rogan Josh.

    My best dish is my omelette.

    I enjoy trying all different sorts of omelettes, with different cheeses, meats, and vegetables on them. I fold them in many neat ways as well. It's unfortunate that I'm terrible at cooking anything else. My mother has a lot to teach me.

    So I'm doing a vegetarian

    casserole/stew/creation and I thought for a bit of a variation I'd add some curry powder. I think it will turn out quite nice. Bonus: The house smells so nice right now.

    Made some honey garlic chicken tonight

    and it came out amazing!!! I am so happy my cousin gave me the idea. The sauce only consisted of chopped garlic, hot sauce and honey boiled together for about 3 minutes and then glazed over baked or fried wings. It is something all should try if you like wings! :)
