Who is it that you cook for on a regular basis?
Your husband … your girlfriend … your parents … your dog … yourself …
Well, this question might not be applicable if you cook for yourself. Hang with me for a minute. If you’re cooking for yourself, I get that there are pluses and negatives. A negative might be that you have too many leftovers, or that you get lonely on occasion. The big positive I see is that you get to cook for you. Your own taste buds, your own texture preferences, your own everything.
The reason I ask is that, many of you know by now that Daniel is the person I cook for everyday. When you’re in a situation like this, you tend to get stuck making their favorite things all the time. Or at least, if you’re a crazy person like me and don’t repeat dishes very often because there are always 658523 new dishes you need to try at any given moment, you get stuck repeating their favorite things more often than anything else. Now, this is only if you really love this person … though if you don’t, why are you cooking for them in the first place?
I say “get stuck” with a smile, because in truth, nothing makes me happier than cooking one of Daniel’s favorite dishes for him. I also say it with just.the.slightest sigh when speaking about clam sauce, because it’s one of his favorite dishes that I’ve never really gotten into.
Until now, that is.
