This One Time, I Made Dinner

Okay, so.  I don't cook.  I don't cook because my children actually asked me to STOP cooking.  TWH is a brilliant cook.  He enjoys it. I HATE it. I suck at it.

Unless it's a casserole.  I ROCK the oven and all things that can be made in it.  The oven is where I rule.

But yesterday...  Yesterday, I made dinner.  From scratch.  And to quote an apron I saw yesterday in the kitchen store, "Hardly anyone got sick".  Really No one got sick.  It was edible.  Like go-in-for-seconds edible.

I made cheese soup.  Yesterday we had out first official "Fall" day.  It put me in the mood for soup.  We were heading to the store and I looked up a recipe for cheese soup on my phone, bought all the ingredients, came home, chopped stuff up (TWH helped), put it all in the pot, followed the directions, and MADE SOUP.   I. Made. The. Best. Soup. EV-ER!!

And I'm totally having the leftovers for lunch.

Because I can.

And I don't want anyone else to eat it.

I'm kinda selfish like that.

One day, I might be able to rock the stove as well as the oven.



  1. I'm the queen of the crockpot soups and roasted big meats.
    I'm available for advice.
    When you can snatch the baster from my hand you can take over turkey cooking.
    ok - is it just me or is there something seriously weird about that last sentence I writted there?

  2. Yea! So glad I'm not the only mother in the world who sucks at cooking!! And, coincidentally, I made soup this weekend too (chicken tortilla soup) and it was delicious!

    1. Cooler weather just BEGS for soups & stews. TWH has a stew in the crock pot right now.

      Also, I'm carrying on a family tradition. My Mother is a non-cook too.

  3. Congratulations on making soup! It really is the little things, isn't it? I like to pretend that I know what I'm doing in the kitchen. I think my family is onto my ruse though. I still can't get used to corn starch as a thickener though... I end up with brown/grey/yellow Jell-O. (oops! That may have been too much... again.)
    It's always nice to be able to carry on traditions. Hopefully at least one of the kids will learn to cook eventually. Somebody has to feed you when you're senile...

    1. Miss A wants to go to culinary school so maybe she won't let me starve.

  4. Is the oven the thing that McDonald's and other restaurants gets food out of? That big thing that people keep in the kitchen?

    I use mine for storage.

    1. I use the stovetop for holding stuff. the oven is MY domain!!

  5. Oh man, that sounds awesome! Now I'm craving cheese soup. I hope you're happy! :P

  6. YUM. I love cheese soup. Bravo to you! You deserve to eat every bite....with a large baguette. I also abhor cooking, unless it involves a casserole dish or a crock pot.
