This isn't going to be a typical post from me about food. As we all know, I have a love/hate relationship but that's not what today is about.
My mom was a great cook. She learned from her mom who sadly died when mom was 15. Then she cooked for dad & brothers & then married my dad at 17 & cooked forever. She wasn't much of a recipe person. I have a cookbook she had that was kinda beat up & had a couple of recipes she cut from the newspaper but mostly she cooked by instinct instead of a cookbook.
I don't have those cooking instincts. When I started to learn to cook mom would tell me what to do & I tried writing them down but mostly I depend on cookbooks. Even with mom instructions & cookbooks, I'm not a great cook.
I have horrible eating habits & my meals are basically unhealthy. But I would rather have that junk at home than eat out. And I've reached the point in my life where nothing really tastes good. Except Schlotskys, which is nowhere near where I live & I only eat once a year. If I do eat out, I eat at Taco Villa which is around the corner & the same consistant food they've had for 40+ years. They are my comfort food.
There is a "save" site called Pinterest where you can find a website & save it to a private board to find later, Mostly what I have on my Pinterest board are recipes. I try them usually only once before I abandon them. But I keep trying.
Today I made a single serving mac & cheese. Pinterest is not just recipes but it takes you to the original site where it came from. That usually means a food blogger who doesn't just give the recipe but the entire history of macaroni & cheese & every grandmother who ever made it. Basically a recipe I can read in 30 seconds takes longer 3 minutes, mostly trying to find the recipe.
It was pretty mediocre. I don't need to cook it again.
