Learning to cook (?)

Somehow, I was not given the gift of cooking. I can bake cakes, cookies, pastries, and bars, but when asked to make dinner, I usually resort to peanut butter toast or a bowl of cereal. It is really sort of pathetic. Luckily, I am with a man who not only knows how to cook, but loves to do it. But, I have come to the point after hundreds of enjoyed meals cooked by Brian that I want to start cooking too. Brian has kindly agreed to help me go grocery shopping and teach me how to cook healthy meals, with the goal of learning one new recipe a week. Last night we kicked it off by cooking a perfect summer meal. I helped Brian season and cook chicken breasts to perfection, cut tomatoes, a jalapeno, a mango, cilantro, watercress, and hot habanero cheese. By help, I mean I watched him do all of this while complimenting his skills and taking notes like a true student. I did cut the cheese though, seeing as how cheese and crackers has been one of my go-to summer meals. The result- delicious! I can't wait to learn my next meal.
