How to Cook

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!

Enjoy:

  1. Select your ingredients
  2. Stab, stab, stab!
  3. Insert in oven
  4. Set the controls (muttering to yourself “for the heart of the sun” is optional, but I always do it)
  5. Wait a few minutes
  6. Ding!
  7. Remove from oven
  8. Wait a bit more
  9. Open packet
  10. Eat

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!

  1. I’ve been trying to comment on your post but to no avail. It keeps asking me to log in, and then I hit a buffer.  No matter, I just wanted to say ‘great post’ and to thank you for mentioning my blog, Reluctant Housedad’s Recipe Shed. Very much appreciated.  I’ve just spent a weekend in Manchester looking after my sick dad – and your ‘stab, stab, stab’ method of cooking came in very handy!  All the best Keith http://www.reluctanthousead.com
