    I never cooked.
    Ever.
    I spent 40 years of my life NOT COOKING.

    I regret it.
    I started cooking for my woman and I LOVE COOKING and you know what?
    I have a natural talent for it.
    Every meal I make I get compliments.
    I have always loved chess but if I'm in the kitchen and cooking I am in heaven.
    I learn and experiment and ask for advice and get better.
    Funny our little world.
    The best part is my woman loves it 😉

    Now, if only you'd wash the dishes, too.

    When my friend does the cooking, I gladly do the dishes.

    Unless you've trained them to be at least somewhat tidy, I find that men who only occasionally cook can leave the kitchen looking like a war zone. Frankly, it's astonishing the mess they can make.

    🙂 Yes, it's pretty amazing. 🙂 My kitchen is small and not well equipped so there is a limit to what can be done.

    When it comes to men cooking, that can be a blessing.

    At least the mess tends to be layered, instead of spreading out.

    I find that women who make generalisations
    about men are in no position to complain about
    men who make generalisations about women.

    I'm grateful for any help I get in the kitchen and I also enjoy the company.

    what is cooking?
    is it more than heating food?

    In your case just open the can, put it in a pot, heat it up, done! 😉

    If you want to call it cooking, go ahead! 😉
