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.

  • Or just put the spice rack really high up to where you need a ladder if your REALLY need it.

  • I don't blame you because a lot of that stuff that is ready-to-serve needs a little help so spice it up my friend and enjoy it.
