Learning How to Cook


Today I’m learning how to cook.  I am chef all week.  I couldn’t be more nervous.  I did get some amazing help from a volunteer named Hannah.  She is absolutely awesome.  We both made tacos for tonight’s dinner.  I feel less stressed because we made it in advance.  Truth is I am a pretty good cook if I know the instructions.  The only part I stress about is all the crazy measurements.  I learned also I need to work on my patience.  While cooking the hamburger I felt like just quitting.  The bigger picture is I’m done until tomorrow night.  Thanks God!  I survived.
