Cooking Made Happy by Eric Dierker. Come on and just smile a bit!
So anyhow it ain't about the food so much as the fun.
People lie and say money cannot by happiness.
If you got the cash cooking is a blast. If you do not it will not last. Cooking is a way to happiness. But it costs time and money. Get over it. If you go out to eat once or twice a week. Stop and have a blast once or twice a week and spend that money on cool ingredients. Don't drink that beverage for a day or two and spend it on herbs.
NEWS FLASH for single men. Really cool women go shopping for really good foods. NEWS FLASH for women, really cool men go shopping looking for really cool women who shop for really good foods. Do you get that synergism. And people who shop for such cool foods are like you. And none of you know what the hell you are doing so there is a conversation starter right now.
I am a happily married man and I love to shop with my honey bunny to get stuff for cooking. In fact my favorito is spaghettio. White, red, black and yellow. Cold or hot and spicey and fishy and beefy -- wow what fun. Sometimes I like to pretend we have nothing fresh and it is dead of winter in Alaska, and I make all with cans. Sometimes I like to go out and about and get every thing fresh.
And of course this calls for some garlic bread and some wild salad with my dandelions mixed in with my iceberg and mallow and such. Tomatoes are huge around here, along with lemon.
Oh yea baby we are talking fun.
There was a time when this Boy was an honorary Brownie.
Ah shucks he hung out with mom and she was a brownie scout leader. And he had a crush on Mimi his mom's best friend's daughter.
You see cooking was a merit badge. Cooking a pan of cookies was love and giving one to another was cherishing. I think we cooked to have fun. And I ate to my hearts desire. Can you imagine we made girl scout cookies from scratch back them. And we raised beaucuop bucks.
I loved cooking ever since my gal Mimi let me lick the batter.
OK we let our disposal get plogged. Do not worry I am the hero.
Cooking is a blast. If you are single go with it.
Be happy and find a group that cooks for fun. I knew a 6'8" mountain man who took about two months of dedicated cooking and shopping and healthy stuff. He met 3 great gals. He was a happy cooker. Of course his specialty was smoking. But we spent 30 days on thirty different spaghetti recipes, what a blast. And pairing it with the right wines was awesome. Plus the after dinner fruits and the perfect fires were excellent as well. Desert is all about sweetness and explaining the constellations to a city girl is fun.
Cooking is so wonderful. From pancakes to crepes, to fondues to picking wild berries for a cobbler it is the juice for happiness.
I was meant to eat. I am a big old boy. But then I found out I was meant to cook.
One time I worked in a tortillaria for the poor. Really I am not kidding. The Church paid our wages. We cooked tortillas for the poor all day long.
One day and night I cooked over 2,500 steaks on wood I cut and split, and with meat that I caught and butchered and hung and prepared.
These were the days of the great American Southwest. We loved cooking out doors for hundreds of people, on mesquite we cut our selves, with oak and some fruit tree for flavor. We labored and caressed our fixings. We sang and burnt our selves and sang praise for the wonderful fruit of nature that loved us and brought us such bounty.
But today, I just love sitting with my gal and son and eating sour soup and crunching healthy vegetables.
I Reckon cookin is like riding a favorite horse. I reckon if you cook for work it ain't love. But if you cook for the pleasure and share it, now you are living.
I just suppose I lost it some how. Sometime somewhere I started cookin and livin for love.
But joy of cooking is not just a Julia Childs title it is a way of life.
