cooking once cooking twice

For every hour Mommy spends in the kitchen, daddy probably spends 5 minutes. Somehow daddy manages to put pictures and videos in the blog which might probably make people think that :

1. Daddy takes on the brunt of the cooking duties
2. Mommy does not come near the kitchen.

Let us officially put all those rumors to rest with this post!

Daddy usually does the final tasting to check salt and spice levels for mommy. He is more or less the QA dude!

Daddy only comes into the kitchen for:

1. Making tea (he always makes the tea)
2. Making noodles with sambar powder substituted for Maggi masala (the kids love this and only dad can make maggi work with sambar powder)
3. Making Pilsbury parathas (frozen parathas) or Tortillas
3. Making something exotic as part of some cooking experiment (once or twice a month)

Mommy does EVERYTHING else!

The reason mommy's cooking does not get the publicity is because almost always daddy has an audience when he is in the kitchen and interesting things happen when he goes near the stove!




As an other side to this, mommy is able to cook in peace only because daddy has the kids engaged. If daddy spent more time in the kitchen, the kids would also be there which would make the whole thing counter productive!

So, no more giving mommy grief over daddy's cooking posts!

At the end of the day, we cannot sustain ourselves on Kadalai urundai's and maggi noodles...

huh??? i thought that typical mom's typical secret dream, universally, is that dad cooks and keeps kids engaged and enthralled simultaneously!

Dipali,

I did a 7 tag.. will pick up this tag next week..

s.b., you are right. But mommy will still complain that she has to clean up after dad.

Dad cooks well. but does not believe in the correlation of taste of food to cleaniness of kitchen.
