This is how you cook horribly

a quarter since the crazy lazy mind got married and is enjoying the new role of managing the house hold stuff....Have always wondered during my college days as in how the cooks in our mess used to spoil the taste of any tasty vegetable....

When I learnt cooking during the initial stages itself crazy lazy mind learnt that if the basic ingredients are added in right proportion and the vegetable in cooked in simple basic way there is nothing that it's taste could be spoilt......still how were these hostel cooks spoiling the taste of such tasty vegetables :( ..bad days....

however later i thought might be mass cooking in the hostel mess could be one of the culprit...and the thoughts or the investigation behind bad cooking just stopped there.....and crazy lazy mind somehow lived over bad food :(:(....

But now after getting into full time cooking, over a quarter, finally the crazy lazy mind discovered the mystery behind cooking horribly and spoiling out the taste of any good tasty vegetable.....

As is the case always and in any case "Experience" could be the best teacher, experience let crazy lazy mind as well turn down the mystery behind bad cooking....

3 months after wedding crazy lazy mind heard her parents are going to visit...what gush of joy rushed...uff....count down started...The day came and my parents arrived...how much happiness...i had cooked my dad's sis and mom's favourite dishes for dinner....since then ....oops..how fast did the time fly...how many trips did we do....how many places did we visit...how much fun and so on.......alas the day for the return journey as well came I went with my husband to drop them at the airport....and soon returned as well...

back at home same routine follows...but memories don't stop flowing in front of you...yes i had send my husband to office and pack lunch box.....although my husband was kind I did not wanted him to eat at the canteen and therefore proceeded to the kitchen to cook.....I should have thought well before cooking if I would be able to cook good food with a weak sober mind...

had picked up good vegetable and started with basic ingredients to cook a simple dish.....but whereever i turned all i could see and feel is about my days at home with mom and sis....since mom had taken over the cooking crazy lazy mind had almost forgotten how to cook :(....

nothing stopped...mind went with its thoughts..however my hands started pouring the needed ingredients and cooking in simple form...15-20 mins past it was almost time for my husband to leave to office and luckily the veggie had got cooked but taste ahhhhhhhhhhhh.....what happened the crazy lazy mind was in awe....

Was the vegetable bad not....what did i do??????normally i used to cook this dish well what happened now....oops it turned out so spicyyyyyyyyy..what to add....ok let me add some sugar to bring down the spice......add some water as well to make it light :(...my bad...the vegetable got over cooked....what did the simple dish turn out into...a dry dish ? or a curry or pasta what not all in a mess...

this is when the crazy lazy mind aha...this is how you could cook even a nice vegetable bad and spoil it's taste....ha ha..may be the hostel cooks as well were under some strong thoughts or confused state while cooking but had to move on with their routine and carry out the regular jobs irrespective of the good, bad irritating or frustrating thoughts they had....

good feelings good food....sad feelings irritating thoughts bad cooking, crazy ideas to fix them up and ultimately bad food :)...

lesson learnt don't ever dare to cook when you are down and try to keep up your routine work...it is ok at times to let the routine break and eat out :D:D...

that's the first time ever crazy lazy mind could not even eat little food cooked by self...until that day it was all in praise for self :):)...what a day what a lesson :):)

ultimately i advised my husband to dump the food i cooked, in case he also found it horrible...

yes and my husband did grab some food from his friend's box for dinner :(.......
