Cooking with Laura

So, since we have been married and I have SO much time on my hands..I decided to start cooking. Now let me give you a little background on "me" and the word cooking! All through college, I never did it. The best meal I knew how to make was spaghetti. I think it was because I had no one to cook for and I found it boring to cook for myself. I was also working a lot and it was my first year of teaching, so I was really busy. My mom always tried to teach me, but if you know me at all, you know I like to do it myself! :) haha Fast forward to now and I am really enjoying it. I find recipes online and make them! It is so much easier than I thought. I also have a kitchen of my own to cook in too, and that makes it more enjoyable. The first meal I made was blackened catfish with rice. It was good..The seasoning was a little much, but that's what cooking is all about right? Trial and error! The next meal was..crab wraps, then spicy pasta, and tonight is spicy chicken and white bean salad. Of course I don't make these meals every night..Cooking can get quite expensive..I need to learn how to make meals in bulk so we can eat them all week. Maybe that will be my next challenge! :)

Something funny..About a week ago, I made dinner and asked Matt, "How is it?" He replied, "good!" Then I asked him, "Did you ever think I would be this good of a cook?" To which he replied, "No!" hahaha There is hope for me!

You definitely give me inspiration!! I NEVER cook and Jack does ALL the cooking. Maybe I should try it out sometime?! :)
