Day 64: kitchen nightmares, take 2

4 Mar

Fear is only as deep as the mind allows.
Japanese Proverb

Tonight, I took my kitchen nightmares to the next level and put my cooking skills to the test.

I made dinner for a living, breathing, human being — Justin.
(And, he’s still alive!)

Of course, I made some beginner’s mistakes — like cutting the oranges the wrong way, oops!  And, the chicken had a little more pep, as in pepper, than desired.  But, I must admit, the asparagus was just divine.

Overall, dinner was not perfect, by any stretch of the imagination, but I did it.
More than anything else, I squeezed a little more fear out of my head.

And, to that, I say:
Bon Appétit!

    Oranges are cut just right. It is all in the perception.

    Our fellow Smithie Julia Child would be proud! “Practice, practice, practice,” she’d say.

      Ah, thank you Sarah! I will repeat that mantra in my head – practice, practice, practice!
