    I love it when I make something exceptionally delicious and he goes back for seconds or thirds. It's a nice feeling pleasing the people you care about. It's too bad he's such a horrible cook himself. One time, he tried to make me dinner and I came home to him almost burning...

    I am the cook in my family.

    I really like cooking. Today I made a Madras curry with the beef left over from Sunday lunch. It's Welsh beef from the market. I added onions, garlic, some left over carrots, mushrooms and put in some gravy. And served it with rice and poppadoms.

    I love cooking. I do most of the cooking.

    It means buying the ingredients. I do that on my way home from school from Asda. Each night I decide what I want to cook next day. In the morning I show Mam and she usually gives me the money I need.
