Taste Testing...


I came back from India with a simple resolution. Be Happy. I realized this meant giving up bad old habits. Habits like obsessing about one man (after all, the great bonus about being a single girl, is that the mantra “variety is the spice of life” is completely applicable,) getting depressed on Sundays (formerly the most boring day of the week) and living life like an old woman (water bottle and all.)

I am happy to report great progress.

You know what’s better than a man cooking you dinner?

Two men cooking you dinner…. (Different days of course….)

You can tell a lot about a man by his style of cooking. Man #1, clean, orderly, came bearing every ingredient, and made me simply just watch. Even bought chocolate mousse cakes, because he knew they were my favourite. Exhibited great attention to detail.

Man #2, not so clean, definitely not orderly, spent half the time dancing around the kitchen, and hugging me up, in between stirs. Made me apple martinis, and left a nice lil mess after he was done!

Both tucked the kitchen towel into the small of their back, both handled my new knives with great dexterity, and both meals came out delicious and yum.

I think I’ll have to have another taste test before making any lasting decisions here. Also consider this an open call for all male chefs out there….since it appears I can’t have my professional, I am now open to amateurs…..

Oooh, who says you have to choose?

Tough decision still. Man 1 has the attention to detail, but Man 2 has spontaneity and joie d' vivre. Sometimes you need the attention and the secure feeling that everything will be taken care of. Other times you wanna throw caution to the wind and adopt a devil-may-care attitude.

Date 'em both til you figure it out. :)

Men who cook are so sexy. I've been fortunate enough to date mostly cookers rather than eaters...well...erm, never mind.

very nice
very very nice--see if you can line one up for every night of the week and you'll never starve.

The OE said...

Previous missions suggest that OE cooking for a woman can cause a sudden breech in National security that is not experienced by lesser chefs.

Somehow I think you're gonna choose Mr. Messy. You seem like the type that would choose a bad boy.

LOL at oe - Cranky! Do your thing! The "hugging you up" part provided a funny visual, as I am guilty of that when I'm in the kitchen entertaining!!
Best luck spicing it up!!
btw, ummm... yeahhhhh....

you know what? i wouldnt put too much into the whole what they do in the kitchen thing. I'm super orderly, cleaning as cook, hating to see dishes in the sink and stuff but I dont think i'm like that anywhere else
