Nope. I don’t know how to cook or cook well. Frown I can make edible food, but not a meal. I wish I can cook an elaborate meal like people do in movies and then host a party. Any of you have some easy recipes you can suggest?

On a side note, we’re getting a set of cookware for Xmas from his mom. Surprised I can’t cook, but I like pretty cookware. So when she asked him what to get us for Xmas, he told her to get us cookware. I hope to make good use of them someday.

@cbee: I’m not domestic either. I’m glad to know I’m not the only one.

Nope, we’re doing our Christmas marathon and visiting all our families for three Christmas dinners in a row from the 24-26th.

Well.. I wouldn’t call it “special” meal since it is basically the same main dish with variations of side dishes every year, but yes, I will be cooking this year.

I will be making a turkey with homemade stuffing.

Our go to side dishes are wild rice casserole, mashed potatoes “au gratin” (“with cheese”), whole cranberry jelly, caramelized carrots with pecans, sautéed green beans with garlic & butter, stuffed bell peppers, butternut squash soup, homemade biscuits, and a dessert or two (usually pies, sometimes a christmas pudding).

Oh, and of course gravy!

If you want to change things up (or are allergic to turkey), Duck a la ronge is a good main course option, as is pulled pork (or a ham).

I guess you could call me domestic, but I don’t see it that way, I just really really love food hahah 😛
