Taste First

I will never make a good chef. I can't cook. I've tried and it doesn't seem to work. If I do cook, I have to follow a recipe perfectly, without deviating. It is the only way that this creating will taste like food.

I tend to spice something before I taste. It's a bad habit, I know. I throw salt onto my meal before I take the first bite. I thank goodness that my blood pressure is pretty normal. This maybe the result of good genes or else because I try to exercise a couple times a week. I can't imagine what my BP would be if I didn't work out or drink water constantly (and flush everything out).

I told myself today that I wouldn't spice without tasting...and I was cooking a frozen ready to serve meal. And yet, I still threw some garlic salt into the mix, without tasting it first.

Maybe the next time I put together a kitchen, I will leave the spice rack at the store.

Where Did The TIme Go

Not really sure why I haven't visited...or checked in.

My life hasn't changed. I'm still boring. I still don't have a life. And so, maybe that is why I haven't written anything. I haven't had anything to tell you.

But I do know that I'm going to Vegas in October. My cousin will be celebrating her 21st birthday there and I was lucky enough to snag an invite. I don't know what I'll be doing there. I don't drink, I don't gamble and I do like staged shows. So whatever happens in Vegas can also happen here at home. But it's something to do.
