Things are moving slow. I have lost a total of 10 pounds. Ten whole pounds. … Sighing to herself… I would like to add some more digits to that total, but I will take what I can get. On shopping trips, I buy every low-fat, no fat, some fat that I can afford. Being on a strict budget, it is hard to find the resources to eat healthy. It seems like as I put the food in the cart, it has already gone up in price before I check out. In order to speed up my weight loss and eat healthy, we need to cook at home. This is a must.
I have been pouring over cookbooks, recipe sites,anything to make our meals more healthy. I found this site. It has substitutions for baking and cooking, from A to Z. Since my husband is a diabetic, I found this site, Allrecipes.com. It has recipes, videos, menu planning and an interface for a shopping list. I can’t wait to get started. Kitchen, here I come(and I hate cooking), I mean kitchen here comes my husband.
I am a very fortunate woman. I love to eat, but I hate to cook. Iam blessed to have two of the best cooks in the world, in my life. My son and my husband. Though my son cooking talents came out late, it does not take away from his skills. He has a notebook of recipes that he has tried and will try. I do not foresee a future in cooking or chefing(I just made a new word), but he makes a mean casserole. His true passion is art. I will displaying those talents at another time. Time to talk about food.
The talents of my husband is not to be outdone. I thought I was only getting a cute bald man, who looked good in his jeans. Little did I know, my stomach and my ever-expanding waistline were in for a rare treat. I will post his credentials and picture later (I don’t want women to get jealous).
I learned of my husband’s cooking career over several dates, meeting and get together. A man who likes to cook, I was in heaven, and so was my children. One of his first dishes was a rolled stuffed pork loin. It caused quite a stir. The stir was I did not get a piece. My son happened to hide the remaining roll and ate it by himself. Let’s just say, he is not left alone with food anymore.
Throughout all the meals that he had cooked, what has really impressed me was several things. His ability to from freezer to table in under one hour. He can make a meal out of air, thoughts and dreams. It amazes me that he can take a few ingredients and some meat and your plate looks like it has a mountain of food on it. He has fed over 10 people in one sitting, with one pot, and everyone is satisfied.
He has never burnt a meal. The plate’s are decorated as well, colorful, delicious and perfection. He even fixes my mistakes(I do cook on occasion, ok let’s be truthful, I cook about 4 times a year).
He is truly a culinary artist. His calling card is a delicious and satisfy meal. He wears a proud grin when he sees his family finish their food. Excuse me now, he is heading toward the kitchen. I gotta go.
I have some more posting to do, I but I have been holding on to this one for a while. Her name is Joyce. She can cook. I usually buy her pound cakes. They are big, tasty and satisfying. My husband who is a trained chef, always wants me to buy a cake a week. That is how much he adores her cakes. I had planned on doing a full spread on Ms. Joyce, but we have never got around to it. So I am going to put it out there. Now I have permission to use her picture and name, I have not gotten permission to give out her phone. I will be back with that one once I get the ok.
I like this lady. I believe she is very shy and she happens to be one of the nicest people I have met. We both work at the same school and you should taste her bar-b-que sauce and her ribs. Oh my God, what a tasty threat. Ok, I got sidetracked for a while, but seriously, she can burn. I want her to shine and want the world to know how wonderful her cakes are. So without further ado, here is Ms. Joyce and her soon to be world-famous pound cake. Please excuse the missing piece. My husband was chomping at the bit.
She is a very nice lady. I like the color blue on here as well
Now for the Masterpiece.
As you can see a sizeable chunk is missing. Some people have no consideration. Truth, this cake only lasted two days. When it’s good, its good.
