My kitchen and I are generally on civil terms, though not necessarily friendly terms (especially when it comes to the oven!) People tell me that I'm a good cook, but I think that is because I actually cook - so few people take time in the kitchen these days! But I'm not always so great of a cook! Take dinner a few nights ago...here's the "recipe" I followed:
***Brown some ground turkey with onions and garlic.
***Retire to living room to allow meat to finish cooking.
***Forget about the meat for a while.
***Suddenly remember meat, and rush into the kitchen.
***Just because it is stuck to the bottom of the pan, does not mean it is "burnt". We cooks call it "caramelized". Yeah, that's right. It is still perfectly edible.
***Dump in contents of spaghetti sauce from a jar in the fridge. Stir well.
***Discover mold growing on the sides of the jar.
***Shriek and cry! Utter despair. It is already 7 p.m.!
***Run out to Taco Bell. It tastes better than spaghetti anyhow!
