COOKING = HEALING :)

The other day I cooked. I made stew with my granddad!:) It was so much fun…especially cause I haven’t cooked in such a long time!! I took pictures too-something I did on impulse as the ingredients looked so colorful and natural:)

I had gone out the whole day and when I came back home…my mom asked me to help my granddad cook stew. At first I was reluctant cause of my blah mood and I was tired but agreed anyway.

Cutting the veggies

So I started with the carrots,then the potatoes,and chopped celery..yeah chopped leaves! It looks so easy when people do it..but I looked at the leaves and thought ‘How the hell do u chop leaves!?’: Being a perfectionist this thought occurred to me.I had to get them right and equal..then I said screw it..it just has to be chopped..so without any aim,just chopped!

Onto the stove


Putting in most of the veggies into crackling oil I began stirring. So I stirred..and stirred..man it took forever!!
I took this pic before the cabbage,carrots and potatoes went in.

I had lots of fun! :)

The end results – satisfaction and felt good about the whole thing,spending quality time with granddad, didn’t laze around and a healthy dinner for all!

Ro,
You forgot to mention the taste of the delicacy? How was it, pushable, okay, or utterly horrible(i mean, utterly delicious!).
Every time i prepare tea, i goof up. Somehow it ends up being anything other than tea. Wonder why.
