It’s no secret that I hate cooking. At least, I don’t think it’s a secret. I am quite capable of whipping up some pretty cool dishes sometimes, but the cooking part of my woman gene, never fully developed. I have sporadic moments, when I’m excited about trying something new in the kitchen, or that June Clever body invasion gets popping, but if I am going to be honest, I’d rather make my family cornflakes every day for dinner, instead of preparing a proper meal. The funny thing is, the kids would love to have warm cornflakes for breakfast, lunch and dinner everyday 😀 , but because I am a good mommy, I don’t oblige. 😀
Yesterday, I didn’t really feel like cooking, but I am very aware of how quickly one can be separated from all of their money, just buy doing the take out thing. I resisted the urge to buy them a cheese pizza and side stepped that look that a husband can give, when he wonders ‘why the hell did I marry this lazy bitch.” lol 😀
I cooked, but I did it lazy people style. I learned a cool trick on the Food Network though. It doesn’t matter how crappy the dish is sometimes, you still get points for presentation. So, I tried to make their plates look pretty with a little bit of cabbage flair. And you know what? ‘E min taste good too’.
I made brown sugar gravy (from scratch) , none a that pre-mixed shit. Spaghetti, fried plantain and fried chicken for the kids. I can’t give ingredient amounts, because I eye-ball everything, but boy did my gravy turn out awesome. I sprinkled a little parmesan cheese on top, just to finish it off, after I shared the plates. Peep the awesomeness of my cooking.
