Rule № Twelve
Enjoy Yourself In The KitchenDon’t complain or curse to yourself while you are cooking. Never look on it as just another chore. That will sour your taste to cook faster than burning tonight’s supper. (Yes, that has happened to me, and boy did I curse up a storm.) It is fun, and the moment it becomes drudgery, whip out your credit card and order in, or go out to a local restaurant. Take time off and close down the kitchen for cooking. On the other hand do not be ashamed to admit to yourself and others when you find you are enjoying your new found creative spirit. Those that laugh at it, cannot do it. Simple as all that. Derision is always the last defense against inadequacy. You will find more often than not, that you have gained the respect of your peers and your kids and not their condemnation.
