Cooking Lessons Anyone?

It's no secret that I am a terrible cook. I can not stand cooking with every fiber of my being. I am very blessed to have a wonderful husband, who is not only good at it, but enjoys it. He can open a fridge, look at what we have and wah-la - throw something together. It's practically magic.

When Mark is out of town, I usually:
a. pick up stuff to go
b. take Morgan out to eat
c. make macaroni and cheese.

Apparently the situation has gotten pretty dire and it's time for me to consider cooking lessons. This is what transpired this week:

I pick Morgan up from school and say "Let's go home and have some dinner".

She response with a panicked "Why? Are you cooking".

Me: Yes

Morgan bursts into tears

Me: Why are you crying?

Morgan: "I don't want to eat at home. You don't cook"

Me: "I thought we could have some grilled cheese sandwiches"

Morgan (in THAT tone): Do you even KNOW how to make that?!

Yep, it's time for some cooking lessons.

LOL, she's too funny! I don't despise cooking but I'm not good at it and I require recipes. I am totally envious of people like your husband who can just put things together!

I hated coking for years and years. My mom taught me but I was criticized often for using the "wrong" seasoning so I stopped...untul i needed to cook to survive (a very very poor period) Now I enjoy it and come up with recipes and mix and match without many problems.

It is funny Morgan cried like that. Have you looked into the placed like dinner's ready where you can make 15 meals (to freeze and reheat) in 2 hours? THey cook everything you simply pile the ingredients according to their directions (with their supervision)

Oh and here are two of my go-to recipes that are super easy. Try one or both if you are feeling adventurous:

I tried to be strong.. I tried to not laugh, however that post sent me into peals of laughter.

It's kinda cute, and I love the fact that your hubby cooks, you really lucked out!!
