I've been the family cook for years now. I was competent- and took a certain pride in my competence- but I didn't find it fun. I wouldn't experiment. <br /><br />Now I'm reading recipe books.<br /><br />Monday morning I was at a loose end, so I made a fritata. I had a slice for lunch- and we ate the rest cold when we came back from St. Helens. Yesterday I cooked a huge dish of moussakha.
