A New Interest [Jul. 1st, 2009|10:47 am]
Tony Grist
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.

Now I'm reading recipe books.

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.

Probably it is more joyful now because the work of parentery is often unthanked and unappreciated and novelty discouraged. e.g. "I shouldn't have to thank you for cooking for your own children" etc etc

I mean no insult to your family when I say that, they may have enjoyed your food immensely - I just have the general belief that childery is a drudgeful and depressing state for which I probably don't possess the requisite mental health, so am very anti the wide-ranging and inhuman expectations it imposes on people.

It's a long time since I've regularly cooked for kids. These days it's just me and Ailz.

I agree about childcare. It's the toughest work going. And the anxiety levels are off the scale.
