That’s not entirely true — I wrote that title to see if it would get any attention 😆 Let’s just say that cooking isn’t any of my great interests, but there are times when it can be a little fun, though. I rather like to eat what others have cooked.
Had a co-worker who always liked to state that she didn’t eat ice cream. I honestly don’t know how true that was — maybe she didn’t, I don’t think I ever saw her eating ice cream — but she sure got a lot of attention! I heard that so many times, during coffee breaks at work, and the same reaction from all the other co-workers … «are you for real?! you really don’t like ICE CREAM?!?!»
Now … I don’t think she would have had the same reaction with cooking. There are probably many people out there that don’t like to cook, or aren’t interested in it. It’s that daily thing … to come up with something every day … I tell you, we eat a helluva lot of meat balls here! Ground beef — that’s my go to-thing. While I was still in Sweden, there was a certain kind of sausage that was the go to-food. Most Swedes have a ring of that sausage in the fridge as a back-up — it lasts for quite some time too. If nothing else, you can put it on a sandwich and eat it as it is, but there are many other things you can do … just like ground beef. The varieties are almost infinite 🙂
Yesterday, it was so cold here, so we decided to stay close to home. The same question presented itself as usual: «what’s for supper?» Had a big bag of potatoes — that’s another thing I’m never without — and decided to make another attempt at scalloped potatoes [or potatoes gratin]. That’s something I really love, but never in my 50+ life managed to get it right when I make it. This time I looked up a recipe and finally I got that nice, creamy consistency that I’ve always aimed for! I was happy.
We had it with some ham, I ate more than usual because it was really good with all the whipping cream and cheese. Afterwards I would have fallen asleep, had it not been for the strong, black coffee.
PS: Here’s the link to the online recipe I used. I exchanged Parmesan cheese for an ordinary cheese.
