The past few months someone has come over on a weekly basis and helped get confident in cooking. This is one of the most difficult things I have had to overcome. The confidence didn’t come easy. Thankfully someone invested their time in me and helped me learn. Today, I can make a very good meatloaf. I can’t also make baked chicken, stuffed chicken (I stuff with roasted red peppers) I have learned to make cobblers several other foods.
In the picture, I’m sitting on a stool which I bought today because the only thing I was missing in cooking was being able to use the stove. I tried using a mirror. It was helpful to some degree, but I really wanted to get up to it.
Since I am cooking more, I have a lot more energy. Although this past week I have not felt like cooking because I have a UTI. I started on antibiotics yesterday and today was already prepared to cook green beans.
I went from no confidence to great confidence in my cooking. I’m very glad I didn’t let fear of cooking hold me back. It truly has made a difference.
