I made a commitment a few days ago which might come back to haunt me. Toney started a new schedule at her job, which requires her to work on Saturdays. She’s never really worked on weekends, so it’s going to be weird. But I told her I’d cook dinner that night — just blurted it right out there — and she happily accepted the offer.
The problem? I can’t cook, at all. Back during a previous lifetime I would sometimes take a stab at breakfast, and it was usually semi-successful. But I don’t know how to cook dinners. Toney got rid of our grill a few weeks ago, because it was rusting out, so I can’t even resort to burgers on the deck. I think I might’ve made a tactical error…
I’m going to give it a shot, though. I’m going to prepare dinner, and have a six-pack of some sort o’ microbrew in the fridge, every Saturday night. Try to turn a negative into a positive. If you guys have any suggestions for good, but SUPER-easy things to cook, please help me out. I’ll be driving back from West Virginia this coming Saturday, but will be starting down the slippery slope of tears, profanity, and “Oh my god, somebody call 911!!” the following weekend. Help me out, won’t you?
The rules: normal stuff (no fancy-ass boolshit), a minimal number of ingredients, and directions that even I can follow. What would you suggest? And I’m serious when I say it’s gotta be simple. It’s going to be like Karl Childers competing on Chopped.
Any suggestions for me? Please use the comments link below.
How are your cooking skills? How did you learn? Did somebody teach you, or did you figure it out via trial and error? Also, any tales of cooking disaster? If so, please share those as well.
And I need to go to work. I feel weird today, physically weird. Hopefully I’m not moving toward the light. I’ll be back tomorrow, I hope.
Have a great day, my friends.
