Just how sick is it?
So I did my Ready Steady Cook challenge last night and I really felt that I should give you my musical response to it asap….because it was mingin’!
I made soup….but I think it was more like soggy vegetables floating in hot water.
Thus, much like Justin Bieber….it made me feel sick!
(No hater mail please!)
So I just thought I’d give you a little insight into how terribly un-domesticated I am….but how I do sometimes try, despite my inevitable failure.
A clear saturday morning light filters in through my blinds. I put some music on and lie back because it’s Saturday- no news required…I’m feeling positive about my food endeavor…my friends who are to be eating it, not so much… so i think ‘how about I rustle up a nice breakie to kick start the day?!’. So I have a nose around in my pretty empty kitchen…find pancakes and fruit- sweet!
So I warm up some pre-made pancakes, stack them all sexy like, drizzle golden syrup in a fashion Ainsley Harriott would be jealous of, getting into it now, scatter some fruit around to the beat of a sweet little French tune that wafts on the airwaves, birds sing outside and my heart warms with the joy of creating.
I sit on my white linen sheets and look out my window. This isn’t going to be too hard….Nigela, eat your heart out…
Tastes like ass.
Really…apparently I have managed to burn the pancakes… Seriously…I can’t even operate a toaster! Well that is my motto in life– burnt is better!…the fruit isn’t too fresh and in general it’s just uber average…FAIL.
I sit defeated on the end of bed…it’s raking up old memories… takes me back to the age of girlie sleepovers and the amount of stick I used to get from my friends who, at the age of 17ish, could already whip up a kick-ass dinner party for all of us. I would stumble down to the kitchen in the morning where a bowl of batter would be promptly handed to me so the girls could all get their morning laugh watching me try and defend the burnt lump that I had created….well enough is enough!
So help, tips. advice? Go ahead help a girl out!
