Writer's Workshop: I Made It!

2. Something that made you smile this week.

I am rather infamous for my skills in the kitchen. In fact, if there is any volunteering done in a charity bake sale, I am the first one to run away.

Not that I don't like cooking. The fact of the matter is, I'd love to try my hand and be good at it. But the sad truth is that even with my perseverance and enthusiasm, I picked the shortest end of the stick when it comes to food preparation. I know myself only too well.

Just this past weekend, I decided to bake something again. We had a banana overflow and so I thought googling a banana bread recipe was quite a good idea.

To constitute a triumph in the kitchen, I measure my cooking results by 3 very important criteria:

1.) The house is still standing after the event.

2.) No harm came to any of the kitchen equipment.

3.) After the first taste, I get a comment from my child that what I had just done "did not taste particularly delicious, but it was not horrible tasting either."

And I am happy to announce that although it was slightly overcooked, my banana bread passed all three with semi-flying colours.

Success, booyah!!

    If the kid actually swallows it without making a puke noise - consider that a win.

    I think it looks delicious! If you follow the recipe like religion you shouldn't fail *this coming from a woman who can't cook bacon*
