I don’t really cook, like at all. I mean, I occasionally throw some vegetable sin a pan with some olive oil and garlic but that’s it. I can follow a recipe, kind of, but I never do. It seems like a lot of work to find a recipe, go buy all the ingredients, try to make it, and then maybe not even like it. I’m also a bad grocery shopper, but I think the two go together. If I knew what I was cooking and how to cook it, then I would know what to buy. I tend to just wander around the store and pick up items until I’m bored. Then I go home with $80 worth of candy and 4 avocados and I eat microwave popcorn for dinner every night. But what if I learned to cook?
On some blog that I read a while ago that I can’t remember any more, someone said their husband was cooking his way through some cookbook (Jamie Oliver, maybe?) a la Julie/Julia and I thought, yes! Why don’t I just do that! I have cookbooks! So maybe I will. Except without any of the time limits or restrictions, but just try to make every recipe in one cookbook and see what I learn and how it goes. I’ll probably start…. in January. well, maybe in December. We’ll see. I’ve tried 365 photo projects before but once I quit on day 50 and once I quit on day 4. Stick-to-it-ness is not one of my strong points.
As for the book, it will probably be one by Isa Chandra Moskowitz because all the cookbooks I have are by her. In fact, it will probably be Veganomicon because I bought it and I have yet to cook one single thing from it. Not one! I’m not vegan. In fact, I’m not even vegetarian anymore. But I like to cook vegan because of all the vegetables and because touching meat totally grosses me out.
Add it to the list!
