The past two weekends I’ve dedicated to cultivating life skills, and having fun doing so. I hosted a barbeque for 25 people the Saturday before last, and another smaller, more spontaneous, one the week after. If I say so myself, both went pretty well, no-one was poisoned, and the food was good enough that people asked for the recipes I had followed. Motivated by this I’m now the proud owner of a proper mixing bowl, a wire rack, and a few more cooking books.
