cats can’t cook…and neither can I…

In the second grade, I met Tisha. We have both made it to be a quarter of a century old together, bravo! In the fourth grade, we decided we shouldn’t be partners together for school projects. This is because of my lack of craftiness. She learned quickly to not let me cut anything or it wouldn’t be straight, to not let me attempt to draw straight lines (even with a ruler), to not let me paste anything or you would see the glue or tape seeping out from behind the object, and so on. Thank jeebus she learned this about me early on, otherwise I don’t think we would have made it to a quarter of a century old together.

The moral of the story is, I’m not allowed to do anything crafty alone. Some sort of disaster always happens. The irony here, and not the Alanis Morrisette kind of irony, is that I went to design school. How did I make it through 4 years of art school being crafty-capped? It’s a good thing I took a liking to coding instead of designing. (Thanks, Mark!)

This same rule applies to cooking. Now that I’ve been out in the real world away from my easy-mac making college student friends, everyone is so creative with their food. I thought, hey with the use of the Internet, I could be creative too! Yeah, no, the Internet fails me every time. Although I never even mastered how to make easy-mac so maybe I shouldn’t be trying harder things.

A project of mine never starts without calling my mom first and never ends without my boyfriend, Joe, walking in on the wack-ass final result. I feel sorry for them. Lucky Tisha, she never had to live with me.

During the project is the best part though. My cat, Bull Dozer (Dozey for short), is always there for me along the way to step all over the pieces of my project. Or waits to try a bite of whatever I made. She is the real champion in this process of mine.

(Screw everything I just said, this blog is to make Dozey famous, somehow, someway!)

If you’re into laughing at disasters, fowl language, and cats – then stick around!

    Awesomesauce. Looking forward to reading more. Especially since I managed to make my skirt, wiggle into it and almost then get stuck in it. Next step…zippers.

    Me too – excited to read more!

    Although it doesn’t seem like you’re especially enthusiastic about learning to cook, I thought I’d at least let you know how I got started (so many years ago) … I started cooking ONE NEW RECIPE per WEEK. I started with simple recipes from Rachael Ray … you either love her or you hate her and aside from her Talk Show, I love her! Anywhoo, I made it my mission to prepare/cook at least one new recipe a week. Soon, I was making more and more – learning all the way! That being said, cooking has evolved to be one of my passions – something I know not everyone can say. I like that it “uses a different part of my brain.” In fact, it relaxes me. IF – no pressure – you’re ever interested in some beginner recipes, let me know – I have a ton of cookbooks I can lend, maybe even give!, you. And I am always available for tips! Good luck – can’t wait to read more 🙂
