Married since 1980, two grown children, 2 many pets, husband cooks more than I do. I used to cook all of the meals but hubby would come behind me and taste while cooking and add his own spices, etc...and it ticked me off, so I told him he might as well cook! (His father always helped cook) Now that I am not working and he is, during the week I TRY to cook, sometimes monotonous, sometimes experimental, hate thinking of what to cook each day, cheap budget, lots of chicken breasts, hamburger, roasts, kelbasa sausage, turkey sausage, pork chops & cube steak occasionally. Veggies are the worse to think of...it's usually called "a can o' something"...peas, beans, corn!!!! I don't like much meat, my husband HAS to have meat. messy and boring is how I describe my cooking...
My favorite things to cook
yummy desserts from scratch. Creatively different things using leftovers. Things you can dump into a crock pot and let it go!
My favorite family cooking traditions
Sunday dinner: Roast N gravy with carrots, potatoes, rice, macaroni pie, lima beans, and wonderful dessert!
My cooking triumphs
A few things that I threw together that were a hit. Like not having another pie crust for my "beef pot pie" so I topped it with mashpotatoes and cheese....
my turkey sausage breakfast casserole, my creamy peach pie....etc....
My cooking tragedies
mostly cooking things that I hate but my family loves, I get bored with it and don't seem to put a whole lot of effort into it after the 20th time, I think I know it by heart, and end up leaving something out...and blah! My family thinks that I do it on purpose and honestly, I would not waste food that way! Putting too much spices "creatively" into a recipe and have the taste be just awful!
