Those Darn Veggies
Husband and I have gone lightly vegetarian. (We do fish.) And it's quite a strain.
I hate to cook. I hate learning to cook new things. And here I am confronted with chickpeas and cocoanut milk. We have a couple of good cookbooks, but I'm just not interested in spending hours chopping and peeling so I can experiment. Husband loves it. He's a great cook and really has fun.
But because he works like a dog all day it's my job to do the cooking. Tonight we're trying Potatoes and Carrots in cocoanut curry over rice. It sounds good, but we'll see....
I've never enjoyed cooking. Baking I like. The process of making cookies is fun to me. The process of peeling eggplant or chopping endless carrots just isn't fun for me. But I suppose I'll learn.
But it'll take a lot of doing for me to get over the process of having to consult recipes and dealing with unfamiliar with ingredients.
Yeah, I'm cranky. But i'm allowed. It's part of my charm. Hell, it's all of my charm.
