Chicken Makhani
Doug cooks on fishbowl nights.  Usually it's something simple like lox, eggs, and onions.

Tonight he is making the chicken makhani.  He asked me to help find the cornstarch.  I went into the kitchen and aaaaaa it smells so good!  I just want to stand there and smell it but then I would be in the way and not get any work done.

But it smells soooooooo yummmmmy. :P''''''

And now I am starving

EDIT 9/5/17: It tasted as good as it smelled.  :D

My own Darling made a chicken pot pie last night and the smell had me drooling too!
:^9......
All capable adults should know how to cook.

Well...

I encourage everyone to try learning skills, but nobody is good at everything. So I don't really support the idea of any specific skill as a requirement for adulthood. It's okay that some people can't cook; they can find other ways to get a healthy diet.

"It's okay that some people can't cook; they can find other ways to get a healthy diet."
And that explains why there are all these step-by-step pictures of easy to make recipes on Pinterest.
There really are people out there who have NO cooking skills at all but are sick and tired of always eating out.
Actually I was thinking in terms of very basic cooking when I said that adults needed to have some ability to cook.
(My own partner still goes gaga whenever I do some canning or bake a cake.)

Re: Well...

Having a partner one can impress is another important skill.

Re: Well...

Quite true! (We celebrated 24 years married back in May.)

Re: Well...

Congratulations! There's a lot of that going around; we hit 26 back in June. Whatever else does or doesn't go on, at least we're getting that right, & that's a big thing.
