I have not made a meal in about five years. I used to cook in college but it was routinely breakfast. I took a french class once and learned how to make creme brulee. But usually I depend on restaurants, frozen food and the kindness of others. This has allowed me to live about 40 years.
My wife is both beautiful and a fantastic cook. Over the 15 years we have been together I have occasionally made grand gestures such as:
"I will cook, one night a week!"
This has yet to happen.
I am pretty uncomfortable in the kitchen.
I have had problems boiling water.
I have had challenges cleaning a non-stick pan.
When I cut carrots my wife takes the knife away from me. For my own safety.
Last week we had a baby. Our second baby. Two things occurred at once.
1) I was given 6 weeks off work for "baby bonding" time.
2) My wife informed me I am in charge of all meals (except the new baby's).
That is over 100 meals. Including food planning and grocery shopping.
I will try to document every meal as we go starting today.
Let the tale of 100 meals begin!
