What do you do when you are left alone in a big house? I would like to think that normal people throw a party. Or sleep the whole day. Or watch movies which they are ‘not supposed to’ watch. But me. The hopeless person I am, I decide to try cooking. Ok. So, you can’t call it cooking if I am just making cheese omelette’s (this time I didn’t forget the salt) and ham sandwiches. But it should work for now.
So this is the first time this year I cooked. And I hope to learn much much more. Collecting e-cook books and phone numbers of people who teach (in exchange of huge amounts of money, which could very easily treat my tummy in some nice restaurant in Bandra West!)..
But as it turns out its not very difficult. And seriously its self satisfying to be able to make something which you don’t mind eating. I was telling my friend how gardening (thats what he is doing nowadays) and cooking are great passions to have. Sadly, the only gardening I have done was the little pea pots in school projects and school gardens. And somehow my cooking skills have also been stuck at that age – Maggi!
But I think now is a good time to learn! What with all the Jamie Olivers and Nigella Lawsons on tv. People who make it look easy and tempting. And if nothing else works, then I have the consolation that almost all my friends enjoy cooking.. So i wont die of starvation ever! 😀 Food, Glorious Food…
