Not to break the world down into gender-based dichotomies or anything, but I absolutely suck at cooking. It’s not ’cause I’m a man or anything like that, and my wife isn’t great at cooking ’cause she’s a woman (though she is great at cooking; seriously, getting home-cooked meals made by her several nights a week is just this side of paradise.
Okay, it’s not that I can’t cook, just that I’m not particularly good at coming up with interesting food. For instance, the wife asked me once to make chicken and rice, so I gave her some pan-fried chicken tenders with a side of minute rice. She just gave me a weird look.
But there are a couple of things I do pretty well when it comes to cooking: I do alright at baking and I make a nice baked mac and cheese. So tonight, I decided to go ahead and fix dinner, just for the hell of it. I’m pretty pleased with the results, which you can see here.
Anyway, yeah, I cooked tonight. I am impressed with myself.
