Hi, I am Casserroo. I have been married since last December. My husband and I were married in Edmonton Alberta. It was a small wedding with only close friends and family.
I have a grown daughter and two handsome grandsons. They are 6 and 8 years old. They live in Port Coquitlum BC which is about a fifteen minute drive away from my house.
I also have a guide dog named Cass. That is where I got my user screen name from, we call her Casserroo. She is five years old. Her breed of dog is a black lab. She is very cute and loves a half an apple every morning after we eat our breakfast.
My favorite things to cook
My favorite things to cook are, tuna casserole, speghetti, meatloaf, and sheperds pie in the crock pot.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My husbands family has beem cooking a bread which they call Bannack. It is like a baking powder biscuit with no milk or eggs. They can either cook it in the oven or fry it on the stove in a cast-iron skillet.
In my family my mother every Sunday would cook a big dinner with roast beef home made apple pie and home made bread. As for me, I make speghetti on Sundays.
My cooking triumphs
My cooking triumphs are the first time I made thanksgiving dinner for my husband to be, happened about ten years ago. We had just started dating. I went to his house and began cooking dinner in the afternoon around 2-00 o'clock. I made for him roast chicken with stuffing, mashed potatoes, and carrots and salad. It took me such a long time to prepare everything that by the time we sat down to eat our dinner it was nine o'clock in the evenning. The reason it takes me longer to prepare dinner I think is because I am visually impaired. It takes me longer to do most things but eventually I get them done.
Oh, by the way, here in Canada we celebrate thanksgiving the second Monday of October.
My cooking tragedies
My cooking tragedies are, the time I burned my roast beef dinner and the fire department was called. It happened about two Christmases ago. My husbands kniece was visiting us from Alberta for the holidays. I decided to impress them with my cooking tallents. I turned on the oven and began preparing the roast. When I was about to place it in to the oven my husbands niece commented she could see flames shooting to the top of the oven.
Well when the fire department arrived it was discovered that I had placed a blue plastic tub in the oven. I did not recall doing that. They sprayed some type of soluvent in order to put out the flames.
It took forever to clean the oven racks because the plastic melted all over the two racks. The bottom rack was a right off. Dinner that night was pizza delivered from my favorite pizza place.
