But doesn’t everybody?
I say this because of something my Mom said to me a few weeks ago after I was complaining about planning our family meals out for the coming week. “You want so much to be domestic, don’t you?”
And it’s the truth. Rather, I want to want to be domestic, if that makes sense. And Pinterest, well, Pinterest makes me want to shove store-bought cookies that I didn’t stay up until 11:00pm making from scratch after the home-cooked meal I served in my crock-pot down my throat.
I didn’t actually start attempting to make whole meals until a year or so ago when I was staying at home with Grayson. Before that, Oscar cooked, and I let him. I didn’t know how to make white rice. Yes, really.
But now I have about a dozen recipes that I have memorized, and we keep eating those same recipes over. And over. And over. So then I go to Pinterest, hoping that I’ll pin something that looks delicious and that’s easy to make. And that happens. And then I never actually make said dish, making spaghetti for the umpteenth time, because it’s easy and I know Grayson (and myself) will eat it. (I can be slightly picky about food.)

I guess what I’m asking is, does it come easy to everyone else, or are you all faking it? I really, really want to ENJOY cooking, and coming up with new recipes without it seeming like a chore. Gimmie all your secrets.
Please and thank you.
