My First....

.....kitchen adventure
Cooking has never been my cup of tea and kitchen would always be a mess if i am around. My mom and sister has enough patience to work wonders in the kitchen which i lack in myself. The only time i find myself in the kitchen is when there is no one home and i feel like i have no choice. This doesn't mean that this room intimidates me and i am just a jerk with no knowledge of the tools there, its just that i feel i don't belong there. But there were also days when i was a teenager in college i used to experiment the stuff i would watch on TV and made my family victims of my awful cooking. Sometimes i have this crazy impulse of doing something great with the little abilities i possess and that's when my family gets alert. My family don't trust me in the kitchen because they know that i would ruin their appetite with my stupid experiments. But it is also true that if i make up my mind exhibiting a little patience, i just do wonders there. There are certain dishes which only i can cook better in the family and thats when my mom gets a break and feel restful of my presence in the kitchen. You wouldn't believe me if i say that i learnt my first dish from my brother. He is not a great cook either, but, apparently, he ate it somewhere and when he tried it turned out to be an interesting recipe. Do you want to know what that recipe is? Sandwich, yes its that simple sounding dish and i say its our kind of sandwich. When i said our kind of sandwich what i meant is a perfectly roasted bread slices in golden brown with the cooked vegetables potatoes along with onions and tomatoes stuffed in between. I don't like a sandwich with a raw stuff in it, and neither anyone in my family. When my brother first tried it home we didn't even have a micro-oven, so he made it on a frying pan. I usually don't bother to remember things i learn in the kitchen, but this one somehow made its room in my mind and i never forgot its recipe. After that, it was me who made it whenever family wanted to eat sandwich. I am glad i learnt it because its very easy to cook anytime, besides i master it in my family. Its not just my family who liked it, but also my friends and neibhourhood family friends and, all those who tasted it, for that matter. And ofcourse this was not the only dish i mastered, but i have quite a list that follows it.

  3. My sister is the same way. She can cook some things now, but she doesn't really like to do it. My mom always tried to teach her to cook, but she was never interested. the best things she cooks are a few simple things I taught her.

  5. Your specialty sandwich sounds amazing. It's probably better in a frying pan than a microwave. Grilled tastes better than just "hot."

    My specialty is Lean Cuisine. I always make a nice steamed vegetable which fills up the plate, and people actually think I cooked it. Haha. : )

  6. Your sandwich looks and sounds very tasty.

    My daughter does most of the cooking now, but I taught her when she was young. It was a very good investment of my time. :)

  7. I love to cook. I definitely experiment in the kitchen and more often than not, it turns out well. I think it's like anything else, it just takes practice.

  10. Yeah, I second the motion, it just takes practice. What important is you have enough patience and drive to try over and over until you succeed. :)

    I usually don't like my sandwich to be heated on Microwave. I want a real toast, so I toast on pans most of the time since all of our electric toasters conked out.

  12. Wow, that sandwich looks really good an your ingredients are quite interesting. I never would have thought to put roasted potatoes in a sandwich. I also love grilled sandwiches. I actually made grilled cheese for my husband and I for dinner last night! :)
