Passion for cooking

Don't count me in because cooking will be the last skill where I'm going to excel. My passion is to eat and not into cooking that's why I'm always having hard time thinking on what meal to prepare for my two boys. Hubby will be coming home early today and I can’t make alibi for not preparing anything because our freezer is still full of stuff that silently screaming, 'get me out of here now' (lol). I must admit I'm too lazy to cook. I don’t know, I'm really not into cooking! I can cook but mostly it’s because I HAVE TO. The saying, ‘the way to a man’s heart is through his stomach’ is fortunately not applicable to my hubby. I have better than that, my wit and humor, (lol) . Ok fine, humor only! I recall the first time I attempted to fry a chicken, I rolled it into starch, wondered why it didn’t turned out as what I expected. *Tupid me, I should bought flour not starch (lol). Well, currently the recipes into my roster are anything fried, chicken curry, shrimp with veggies sauted in teriyaki sauce, tofu and sprout in teriyaki sauce, steamed cauliflower / broccoli with cheese, ground turkey and spaghetti (my son's fav), the rest are unhealthy ones /microwavable ready. These are the only recipes that I know how to prepare. Hubby can’t complain maybe because he’s too tired and just want to eat whatever is available, otherwise he’ll be starving. Poor hubby, he doesn't have any choice. Mostly women are good cooks than men but I’m wondering why the majority of Chefs or professionals in the kitchen are men. Why oh why? Is it because at home, it is expected that the wife is in charge of cooking, thus, let the professional cooking (source of income) handle by men? Well, I believe that cooking is a very challenging skill and whoever excels on it whether women or men, they're blessed. I'm not lazy, it's just that cooking doesn’t interest me that much yet. I love eating more but, I'm trying because I want my son to be healthy. So, to all women and men who can cook and a good cook, hats off to all of you.
