My Hate/Hate Relationship with cooking
Okay, so I'm a horrible cook and don't like to cook. The guilt and shame associated with being a woman who can't cook caused me to try and fake it and even learn but now that I'm older I just say heck with it and am not ashamed to say that I seriously lack any culinary credibility and am happy to have a gourmet hubby. I still like to eat, just not cook.
That being said I have a story. I can't even boil a darn egg apparently!! I am one of the parent helpers for Austin's Easter party in school today and they didn't want to give me too difficult a task with the new baby and all so his teacher just asked if I could supply the class with 2 dozen hard boiled eggs for decorating. Sounds simple right? I went online to just find out how long to cook them in the boiling water. Little did I know that it was a many step process and even should have used "aged" eggs to get them to peel better, yada, yada. What a joke. Cold water, just boiling, then off the heat, then cold water again. Sure a few steps but simple right? I swear I followed them to a tee! I made extra just to make sure they were okay, well I made flippin' soft-boiled eggs instead of hard-boiled! For Pete's sake I can't even boil a dang egg! I suck eggs! GRRR!!!
