Or do you like to cook?
I do 90% of the cooking at my house, I enjoy it. It's not really a hobby but it's close.
I was raised by my grand parents until I was 11. And they were Italian, fairly traditional Italian at that. My grandmother spent most of her day cooking and I would watch, was basically the only kid in the house at that point.
Fast forward a few years and now I'm with my mother in Spokane. She wasn't much of a mother and I had to fend for myself most of the time. The things I learned in my grandmothers kitchen came in handy when it came to feeding myself. I could even make something that tasted decent with not many ingredients in the house.
As time went by I learned to enjoy pleasing people with a great plate of food.
I'm not a gourmet by any means and don't get into a lot of exotic stuff. I have found that using FRESH high quality ingredients, makes a huge difference in the final out come, probably more so than anything else.
I love seafood but my wife won't eat crab, lobster or most shell fish. So I do fix it for myself when she's not around.
The other day I bought some King crab to eat.
When I was preparing my dinner something happened that I've NEVER seen before.
My potato blew up in the oven. I mean with a loud bang blew up, the skin split in two pieces and the meat of the tater blasted all over the oven. In over 45 years of cooking I've never had this happen. Yes i pierced the skin before putting it in the oven.
Do you cook?
What's your speciality?
Got a funny story?
