I‘m terrible…(or not)…the gas has been turned off for safety reasons (boiler was playing up due to gas leak) and all I can think of is yippee, no cooking for me…I’m not bothered about hot water or no hot water…I’m just delighted there is no gas…so I don’t have to cook. I really wouldn’t mind two more weeks of this. Cooking is (can be) so tedious. In order to cook a tasty meal, I have to be in the right frame of mind because I don’t even like being in the kitchen for starters. So half the time when hubby’s like “what’s there to eat?” and I scowl (even a tiny bit), he’s like “don’t worry, I’ll fix myself something”. Sometimes I feign exhaustion, so that I don’t have to cook. I would rather live on muesli, tea and toast than cook a meal. It just takes so long…you have to keep checking on the food…it burns so easily…you have to taste for this, taste for that…gaaaahhhhhh. Now, with no gas 😀😀…I don’t even need to find an excuse to avoid the kitchen. It’s plain as day…two more weeks of no gas would suit me just fine. Pity technicians are coming to repair boiler tomorrow.
I am sitting in the kitchen blogging…no heat, sounds and smells of food cooking…just a blissful room…the kitchen is such a great communal area (especially when it is not hot).
I would love cooking if only I didn’t have to do it everyday.
You must be a good cook…I bet you cook effortlessly. Wow…if I cooked everyday, the fire brigade would have visited by now. I really do not like cooking… I love food though. Curious…do you ever burn food? Cos I do most of the time….it’s tiring.
Isn’t the sound of the smoke alarm going off the signal that the food is ready?
