Are you one of those women that stay on pinterest pinning delicous, decadent recipes? Are you one that not only cooks them, but can present them with such beauty?
Well I’m not! You can even check out my pinterest boards here to see for yourself!! For so many years I have thought something was wrong with me because I just don’t get into cooking! I mean who wants to stand in a kitchen for hours cutting up and preparing food! Not me! I would rather be on facebook chatting away with my friends or reading up on my favorite blogs! I am learning to accept myself for who God made me to be! We all have things that we are good at, and it is ok if you are not good at cooking! You can read my blog post, how-to-clean-a-scorched-pot, and know that I am not joking when I say I am not a good cook!
It’s crazy how things in life go. I have spent the summer with Angelia, my newest BFF and a professional chef! That’s right, a professional chef and me! I guess the Lord had something in mind! Angelia is a chef at Glen Arvin Country Club in Thomasville, GA and has spent the summer in North Carolina cooking all the meals for the camps at Living Waters. So much for dieting and loosing these extra stress pounds that I seemed to have packed on very quickly before David left for Afganistan! She has made sure that I fed my stress, and fed it well! Not only is she an excellent chef, Angelia is a hoot! Angelia is always cracking a joke and you will always see a BIG smile on her face! She has been such a blessing for me this summer, she has made me laugh so much and laughter is good for my soul! Thank you Angelia!!
I have to admit, she can be a little intimidating! I mean she makes crepes from scratch! I have never even tried to make a crepe in my life! Just the name itself has kept me from giving it a try!
Sometimes I feel guilty and actually put a lot of effort into a meal, but basically we have a very rigid menu that we follow, and it is something easy like tacos or spaghetti!! And I am not a rigid person! During the Holidays, I do put forth the effort to be somewhat festive! I got to have the opportunity to decorate a table at least!
So do you think she taught me how to cook?
Are you a Gourmet chef or a quick and easy short order cook like me? Or something in between?
