This weekend I was listening to a podcast where the host mentioned that he couldn't boil water. However his wife was a chef when it came to meal preparation. It was yet another area that I identified with him.
I can make a sandwich, put the coffee on, and make a salad. I have not been one who can put together a dish. There are too many details and ingredients. The recipe calls for things I have never heard of and then there is the whole measuring challenge. I have noticed that when it comes to food, I like to eat it, but I get sleepy when it comes to assembling a dinner.
My contribution in the kitchen is clean-up and putting things away. Although I don't relish getting my hands into the sink and scrubbing used dishes and utensils, I do it out of a sense of responsibility and a desire to contribute.
