All of us have favorite foods - not just "comfort" but the favorite. All of us have foods we will NOT eat. Somehave food allergies and some have "restrictions." Dad was on a low salt diet which caused problems when I was the one cooking - instead of him. Dad did most of the cooking until he just couldn't stand for any length of time. His health was starting to, slowly, go down (which is easy to see now looking back.)
Meanwhile I was supposed to be doing the cooking. I never really learned how to cook. I could do a few basic things - roast in the oven with potatoes and carrots, the family hamburger and macaroni dish, and order take out. My idea of cookinng was microwave meals. There is a wide selection of microwave meals out there! So when Dad couldn't do the cooking anymore, and I had to start, we switched to microwave meals.
You guessed it! They have a lot of salt, sometimes listed with other names, in them. So I had to learn how to cook. Like I've said - sometimes you have to laugh or you start screaming. Dad encouraged me as I was learning. He even bought a crockpot and grill for me. I did NOT poison him and I am slowly getting better at cooking. So... let us laugh not scream!
How is your cooking?!
