Do men wear pink... or do they cook?

I think that the "short" answer is, if a man is secure enough with himself, he most certainly could do both (even at the same time!) although I've never actually seen a chef in pink! Seems the drab white and "checkered" pants are the norm in this neck
of the woods... Do they still wear those awful hats?
So, as I pulled into downtown San Diego on my most recent visit (20+ yrs ago...) I happened to have worn a "polo" style shirt, that was a salmon-ish color at the shoulders, with a wide stripe below of a blue, and another green. A police car pulled up beside
me at a red light... I nodded and smiled... and the officer backed up to get behind me. The light turned green, I proceeded 1/2 block to my hotel - by now his lights were flashing, and he followed me... Trust, when they say "lay on the ground," and then
cuff you... they do that and only that! As I sat in the back of the squad car, I read the note attached to the dash... description of a man... fitting my general appearance, and wearing a PINK shirt! I guess a bank had been robbed, a witness was brought
by - she shook her head "no," and I was released. Despite, I still enjoyed my "vacation," and headed back to Phoenix when the time came!
So, here I am oh so many years later... That shirt has been gone for a long time, however I do own a solid pink t-shirt which I do wear on occasion. Do I wear it when I cook? Guess I must if I put it on in the morning, and fix dinner that evening!
Speaking food, I once again made "extra" this evening, thinking enough for both this evening's meal, and one more... alas, as so often happens, I can never figure out how much dry pasta to toss into the pot! I was hoping not to have to cook more tomorrow,
but fear if I want "leftovers" for lunches, I'm going to have to boil one more pot! I've been craving tuna casserole for almost two weeks... added a can to some l/o mac&cheese a while ago, but it just wasn't "right," if you know what I mean!
Oh, I have found a recipe for a creamed soup substitute, if you're interested... I skipped much of the seasonings that the recipe called for, as I figure if I want "cream of mushroom," I can add mushrooms, or "cream of celery," some diced celery and celery
salt.... I guess my version falls into the category of "all purpose," if you will. I'm simply looking for "homemade" substitutes, afterall, I have the time to mix my own. Onion Soup Mix, make my own... Taco seasoning, make my own... Casserole sauce mix,
make my own! Perhaps this whole topic should be the subject of an individual post...?
So, be healthy, be happy, be crazy...
