Monday Memoir - Week 7
I have been taking my Crockpot into overdrive lately. There are so many good comfort food recipes that fit perfectly into the Crockpot AND allow for an easy dinner. I feel like the chicken or the egg – do I love to cook because I love to eat, or do I love to eat because I love to cook? I’m looking forward to hearing about your favorite foods… We’ll be ready for a sweet treat when we get home.
1. Describe your cooking skills and your favorite thing to cook.
Describe your cooking skills and your favorite thing to cook.
My least favorite thing to cook – fish. My husband doesn't eat fish, so I haven’t ever really learned how to handle it. I love to eat salmon, but I’ve never learned just how it’s supposed to be prepared.
Describe one of your favorite foods from childhood.
One of the recipes I miss from childhood is good old-fashioned pumpkin pie. My mother used to take the jack-o-lanterns right after Halloween and bake them. Then she’d puree the pumpkin and store it for pies. The smell of pumpkin pie always meant family and fun. A little dollop of whipped cream on top was the perfect complement.
