Am I the only one that feels like this?
I have virtually no natural desire or urge to COOK!
None, nadda, niltch, zip.
Occasionally the urge takes over and by choice I rock into the kitchen and whip something fantastic up…but that’s few and far between.
Am I the only person in the world that feels like this?
I LOVE to eat delicious Food.
I love the act of sitting down together with family, friends and people you love to eat, catch up and while away the hours together.
I like buying yummy Food.
I enjoy flicking through the odd Cook book. I even own quite a few.
If I didn’t haaaaave to cook, I probably wouldn’t.
Of course I DO cook…you know
…would starve if not
…you know kid needs feeding – like everyday!
…you know vegetables need to be eaten…blahdy blahdy blah
But its very nearly always reluctantly.
Is it just me out here in the internets on my own confessing my dislike of cooking…or are you one of these Mom’s too?
In years past, sometimes I would feel guilty that I wasn’t ‘THAT Mother’ that was a whizz in the kitchen that just LOVED feeding her family with delicious home cooked meals…
But nope, no more, no time for guilt.
I have about a dozen or so dishes that I can cook really well that taste delicious, so that gets us by.
What’s that got to do with the #NZBloggers topic – SAGE (that I’m a month late on)?
I’m late to the party with the Blog Greatness Challenge…but I was reading through the list and the very first one (from MAY!!!) was SAGE…
I giggled thinking…goodness me what would I write about Sage?
I don’t even quite know exactly what it is?
Or how I would use it?
But thinking about Sage further, I worked out that, I would rather:
…Pay a Cook…than a Housecleaner
…Pay a Cook…than a Gardener (and I also don’t love gardening)
…Pay a Cook…and work an extra hour at work everyday
…Pay a Cook…than even having my dishwasher!
I can’t afford to pay a cook…but maybe one day! 😉
I love the My Food Bag concept, and think it’s a great idea for families (if in budget). The food looks DELICIOUS!
…but I kinda wish that Nadia would turn up everynight and cook it also for me…
…hey I would even be happy to have the very 1st person voted off MKR cook it for me…
…hey I would actually even be happy with anyone that can wield a pot and whip some yummy food up at my disposal.
Being a Single Parent its just about always ME on cooking.
Yes Miss 15 cooks and cooks quite well. But reality is, she has a very full schedule not just during the week but weekends too where Homework, Multiple Trainings, Study, NCEA and commitments take priority.
There’s not alot of downtime, so the last thing I want to do is pull her away from finishing assignments to cook…so it’s still me.
Note to future husband out there…start cooking…
They often say “The way to a Man’s heart is through his stomach”…but maybe in my case “The way to my heart is through my stomach”!
Did you always love cooking…or something that came latter?
Sometimes I wonder if in 5 years time, it will hit me and I’ll be like “Ohhhhhh, that’s what everyone is talking about!
Maybe I’ll even learn what to do with Sage 😉
