I Can Cook! It's A Miracle!
Those of you who know me, know that I do NOT cook. I don't like cooking, I hate eating dinner and doing dishes... so that has always amounted to me not cooking at all, unless the meal comes in a package and all I have to do is defrost or warm it up.
In our five years of marriage, Jason has been very understanding of this and has not asked that I ever cook him a meal. He still doesn't, but now that Jack is almost two I can see the importance of family meals and good nutrition and so I am now forced to open a cookbook and try some things out. I have tried a few things here and there, but tonight was my first REAL success... I actually made MEATLOAF! That is like a staple of childhood, and a real sign of motherhood as far as I am concerned. I actually looked up the ingredients, put them all together in a bowl and then let the meatloaf cook for 1 hour. If I can make meatloaf, I can do anything! :) It was great tasting, low fat (recipe from Body For Life Cookbook), and really easy. Hooray for me!!
Also, a pic from Jack putting the clean sheets on our bed. He loves pillows!
