“Whatever the mind can conceive and believe, you will achieve” ~ W. Clement Stone
You know, maybe I haven’t been giving myself enough credit. All of this time I’ve told everyone they can do anything they set their mind to, I’ve been telling myself I’m a horrible cook. Yet just today I turned out a delicious meal for Thanksgiving!
I seasoned the ham with pineapple and brown sugar, made the deviled eggs from scratch and prepared the other items, and we seriously pigged out! I think I shall take some paper plates and make frozen dinners for another time, cause man, this was so good!
After the ham finished cooking and I assembled Katie’s plate, I just stood there in amazement at my accomplishment.
It was beautiful!
It was delicious! Katie and I have eaten so much tonight!
I am so proud of the fact that I managed to cook this meal without killing someone, a meal that tasted good and was healthy. This is the first holiday meal I have cooked in years, preferring instead to go to friend’s homes or get take out instead of cooking.
You see, I’ve made folks ill with my cooking in the past. Heck, I cracked one of my own teeth on my cooking once!
Something has changed, and that something is me. I am learning, I am growing and becoming something that I previously thought impossible.
I can cook.
To me, this is a miracle, and a reminder that I need to stop selling myself short. Instead of saying I can’t cook, I need to start saying I can.
So whenever I dog my culinary skills, will you remind me of this meal?
Well, I am so full I do believe that I am going to rest for a while. I hope everyone had a holiday as wonderful as we did here.
