Cooking Surprises for Me

I cooked this, Yes I said 'I'

I surprised Hubs, myself, and everyone else when I just out of the blue decided to cook spaghetti!
since I have absolutely No desire to cook.
  
 What is wrong with me??  maybe it is a midlife crisis??

This is one of my excuses challenges when it comes to cooking... carrying a hot pan of boiling noodles to be drained at the sink.....across the kitchen....with one hand and pushing the trigger to make the power chair go....with the other hand...that could be dangerous but I did it kinda easily!

I am not bragging about cooking or pumping gas.

I am just thankfully feeling better...
(after I had 2 surgeries last year).
and trying to enjoy the little things of life again!

Wow Kim!! Good Job! It is hard to cook when you can't walk to carry things.... very hard. I had hip surgery years ago and was trying to figure out ways to still be able to carry on my daily routine.... Not Easy!!

I love spaghetti and yours looks delicious. You can invite me for spaghetti anytime.

Nice job! :-)

this is wonderful that you can if you want to... i am the queen of not cooking, i really hate cooking.. but this is a major thing that you did it and you pumped the gas... so happy for you... we all tend to take things like draining the spaghetti for granted.

Good for you!! I'm not in a wheelchair -- yet -- but I do have to be creative when I decide to cook alone!
Peace,

It looks yummy Kim!!!
Way to go, pots of boiling pasta are so hard to handle some days...My kithchen is small enough for me to drag the pot to the sink, but lifting it is another issue...Can't wait to see what you fix next :)

Pasta is my favourite food, and yours looks good. YOU!!!!
I am not a great cook, but I learned to make good pasta dishes from an Italian mother-in-law.
