Cooking: Epic Fail Experience

Oh, I love cooking! And that's now. I'm sure most of you have seen me posting 'Momma's Menu for Today' in noise.cash almost every day. That's part of being a full-time Mom. And even I have a part-time job now, I'm still a full-time Momma.

But did you know that cooking never likes me? Like I love to eat. Oh definitely! But to cook? No. Nah, never a skill to me.

It started when I was young when my parents have to leave us at home while they are both working and as the eldest, I have to cook. Rice is the main one. And I can't remember how many times if not burnt or the rice is not cooked. My father is our chef, a very good one and he's very disappointed because I can't even cook rice. I think I got it from my Mama. She can't cook either.

So in college, I decided I'm taking up Hotel and Restaurant Management, first because I want to learn to cook and second I would love to learn bartending. I love how they can throw up those bottles in the air. It looks so cool!

Fast forward, I didn't enjoy my course. And I don't understand why I have to spend at least Php1000/$20 just to buy ingredients for cooking food that only the teacher taste and eat? Like we are not rich and we can't afford such especially when cooking international cuisine and we have to buy all the ingredients. It's not for me so I stopped.

And then when I started working since I'm alone I never cook. I just buy cooked food in fast food or the shop near me. And sometimes I'm just too tired to eat at night I just want to sleep. Maybe that's why I was able to keep my figure when I was working. That's why I am the now. Oh sad!

So let me share these epic cooking experiences of mine!

Before I learn to cook.. This is a Throwback experience.

Sinigang na Adobo

One day, I invited my friend and office mates, Euri and her now-husband Arman to my house. That's way back 2011. I was so excited I went to the market and buy meat to cook. I will cook for them. Feeling chef. Imagine I don't cook then suddenly I will. It's okay I know what I'm doing. I try to remember what my Papa told me.

I'll be making Adobo for them (Filipino dish in soy sauce). Just like this in the picture. That's Adobo.

But you know what happened? I put water, maybe too much water in the adobo and it looks like soup after. I can't even taste it.

So when they come, I feel so bad I don't know what to do. She even asked me if it's sinigang I'm cooking. Can you imagine the Sinigang na Adobo?

Sinigang is like this (watery). 😁

And the ending she is the one who tried to salvage my soup. I mean the adobo. We are still able to eat it. Because we don't want to waste it. We eat it with a smile on our face even deep inside they must be cursing me for letting them eat this. And that's the last time I cook. Euri told me, never to cook again. She's a good friend of mine. And that's the best advice she can give to me.

The Uncook Baby Potatoes

Not the actual potatoes. This was our dinner yesterday lol.

I will never forget this one. One day, I went to the market and I bought baby potatoes. My sister and her bf that is her husband now stays with me at that time. And I love him so much. He is very nice and I couldn't ask for more for my sister. They are the best match ever!

I know that Fino loves baby potatoes so I cook them for him. I cook it in butter. And oh I'm so excited to serve it. I didn't try it. I just cook it for him for sister doesn't like it much as well. We stick to our rice.

Then I gave one to Fino, he takes his time eating it in front of me. And he said it's nice so I told him to eat it all and that I cook it for him. And he eats it.

And the next day. My sister told me,

"Ate (that's how we call our eldest sister), did you know that the baby potatoes that you gave to Fino yesterday weren't cooked?"

She said Fino doesn't want me to know and don't have the heart to tell me that it wasn't cooked and doesn't want to disappoint me because I was so proud of making him baby potatoes. 🤣 That it was hard as a brick and his stomach aches after eating it all.

And then I realized that you have to boil the potatoes first! Well to be fair nobody told me, I thought I just have to cook it in butter. 😅

And that explains why his face looks weird as he is eating the potatoes in front of me as if he was taking his time. But I feel so stupid not knowing that. Hahaha. Poor Fino! The next day, I buy baby potatoes again. 😅

My first ever Carbonara

I'm broken-hearted with this one. As I tried my best. When we're in the Philippines with my husband I made him a Carbonara. I pour my heart into it. 100% effort. He watched me cooking because he knows I never cook. And that I'm no good at it. He's the one who's cooking in the house. My husband can cook and everything. Mum said, she learned them everything.

And here's YouTube to the rescue. And I don't know why of all the food, I choose to make him Carbonara.

And I was so excited! I thought I did great coz it looks like carbonara! The white sauce tastes good. And so I bring him a plate.

My smile is up to my ears. My confidence was 101%. When suddenly he says,

"I don't eat white sauce pasta."

I want to pack his things that moment and throw him back where he came from. I was so upset. After all the effort he didn't try it. As in! Not even a taste of it. Ahh, I'm fuming. 🤣 He said he thought I'm making it for myself. Hahaha.


And there you go, lovely people. And for the girls that thought you will never learn to cook, oh you will. Definitely! Thank goodness I learned to cook and got better should I say.

Keep watching cooking videos for a start and from then on you will be able to experiment with the different dish and make it to your own liking.

Coz my Papa always says, If I want to eat, I should learn to cook. My Papa is so proud of me now that I can cook. Haha. Now, I'm missing his food. He's my best Chef ever.

And proudly, because if you have a family and husband to feed, you eventually want to feed them with good food. And I did it. See? I'm good at cooking now. I feel like the chef in my own house! And everyone who comes appreciates my cooking. Isn't it nice? 😁

Who's the chef in your house? You?

Thanks to @George_Dee for the inspiration after I read his funny story in his recent article. It reminded me of this experience! Check it out.

Thank you for reading.

I like Fino, he appreciate your effort and never want to confront you. I feel the raging fuming surrounds me pagkatapos kong magluto with tudo effort din hindi pala kakain. My Papa is our chef in the house but suddenly I couldn't taste it anymore. Like you ate, si Mama hindi marunong pero natuto din later on.

I am glad your husband understands that cooking is not your strong suit as it's not mine either. I can be very picky with foods but I won't complain that much because I know if I can't make it, I have no right to complain hahaha.

I laughed when you said that's why you kept your shape till now. Well, you look absolutely cute and stunning. Good body size too, momma... No... Ate. 🥰🥰😍😘

Cooking is in the mountains of the Himalayan but you conquered it. 'Fino takes his time eating it in front of me. He said it's nice so I told him to eat it all. And he took them all.' That was an excellent, scenario, I guess. 😂

Hahahaha...so your Sinigang turned into something watery, and little potatoes were uncooked but still your sister's husband appreciated you,he must be a generous guy. And your last experience was truly hilarious...lol, but I am glad to know that now you are chef in your home and I totally agree with what your dad said to you, that if we want to eat we should learn to cook.

You know those were really funny🤣🤣 but also if you don't fail you can't learn any thing at all so sometimes you just have fail in order to win . And also every one has their epic fail moments might not be in cooking but we all do really And you really do have a good family that loves and cherishes you if not they won't eat it but with love they did you did really inherit a mind blowing recipe welldone💯💯✅

🤣🤣🤣, your family are nice at least they ate it.. My family gets worried when I do experimental cooking especiallyafter watching foodnetwork. it is experimental, so it can turn out good or bad. like one day I added garlic to porridge beans, it tasted 🤮, we ate it but my hears kept hearing how terrible it was.🤣🤣🤣. I enjoy cooking though at my own pace but generally my mom or sister is the chef in my home

Anyways, okay lang naman siguro ma.epic fail paminsan Ma'am. Ang importante naman dun is may lesson na natutunan, which magiging motivation pa natin para mas pagtuonan ng pansin ang mga bagay-bagay, especially na sa pagluluto..

Wag ka po ma-discourage o kung ano man, try and try and try ang try.... Hanggang sa makuha ang tamang luto at timpla..
