I’ve been thinking a lot lately about what I can do to help my wife, who is a SAHM, other than the usual list:
1. Pick up after myself
2. Take the children out somewhere
3. Send her to the spa for a day
Last week I was working late every day and I know that she looks forward to me coming home in the evenings to give a hand. So this week I’ll be getting home at regular time and I’ve decided I want to do a little something extra to help.
I want to start cooking. Nothing too drastic, maybe just once a week to start. This may very well be a disaster waiting to happen. When I was in high school I struggled to make cool aid, but quickly learned the difference between sugar and flour… And I failed Foods class due to a batch of cookies that turned into one giant gooey rectangular mess. (I’m still not sure what happened there, maybe I didn’t learn the difference between sugar and flour as well as I thought)
Now though, I feel somewhat more prepared to take on this challenge since installing several more fire alarms throughout the house and purchasing a fire extinguisher.
I’m no master of the grill, I have only this one perfect burger to add to my cooking resume’!
So I’m just wondering if there is anybody out there who knows how to cook, that can point me in the right direction for a few easy meals, or a good website or blog that I could follow for ideas. I can do spaghetti, hot dogs, tomato soup and lasagna. Other than that, I’m stuck.
