You may have noticed – and the readers of this blog, all 3 of you, I’m sure are smarter than the average bear – that this purports to be a parenting blog.
There’s a bit of an elephant in the room here though. Cooking is quite an important part of raising children, & it’s not my strong-point: hence the absence of posts about it.
I’m not suggesting that you cook an elephant, by the way: I suspect even an AGA couldn’t manage that. Plus, I’m pretty sure it’s illegal.
You see what I mean? Cooking: not exactly my specialist subject.
I can cook, or at least I have done, but my last attempt nearly started a fire. And that’s not a joke!
I’ve seen so many great parenting blogs that have posts full of great cooking tips & recipes for mouth-wateringly good food, & have often thought that it was a bit of a shame that I couldn’t do that myself.
That’s why I was so pleased to host a guest post here yesterday with some really good autumn recipes to try out.
And I’m now inspired, so inspired that I want to present my first, very own recipe post!
- Select your ingredients
- Stab, stab, stab!
- Insert in oven
- Set the controls (muttering to yourself “for the heart of the sun” is optional, but I always do it)
- Wait a few minutes
- Remove from oven
- Wait a bit more
- Open packet
I know, right? I bet you just can’t wait to try it out!
On a slightly more serious note: let’s just say that I’m out of practice.
I would like to cook more though, & who knows, one day I may be even be able to post my own cooking tips or recipes here!
In the meantime you could do a lot worse than have a look at a proper cooking blog like Reluctant Housedad’s Recipe Shed. I rarely read it myself because it always makes me hungry, but it looks really good.
And I’ve just noticed that this reads a bit like some sort of sponsored post. It’s not. I just admire people who are really good at things that I’m not so good at. Yet? And yes: that’s a long list, but cooking is up there!
