Mom of 4 + 1, ex special events planner, current unemployed writer.
I used to love to cook, but after so many years of cooking and cleaning up, I no longer love it.
Because I have been cooking for so long, I have started to give myself rules for cooking... like, no stove when it's over 85 degrees out, T for Tuesday (have to cook something with a T on Tuesday), leftover brunch, etc. It makes my chore a little more fun.
My favorite things to cook
I love to invent soups and sandwiches. I also love to use my crock pot/slow cooker.
My favorite thing to cook is breakfast for dinner but my kids don't love it so I do not do it very often.
My cooking triumphs
If you ask my husband why he married me, he will tell you it is because of my Sweet Potato Casserole. I think that is a triumph! :)
My cooking tragedies
Oy... Many years ago, when I was a single mom, we had breakfast for dinner every Monday night. One Monday morning, I made an egg casserole in my slow cooker. All day long I thought about dinner. That evening, the kids and I walked into the house to the wonderful smell of breakfast. The kids and I excitedly took our first bite then spit it out. It was the most vile thing I have ever eaten.
I took the kids' plates, tossed the egg casserole in the garbage and took them to McDonalds.
Worst. Meal. Ever.
