Then of course there is the boy's way...
For example last weekend we were at Target, and the boy decides its my turn to cook. Well, in the middle of Target, there's no way I can come up with an idea. Let alone figure out what I need to buy, so he decides to take the reigns. He thinks about it for a little bit and decides, "I'll make orange chipotle glazed chicken." Seriously, how does he randomly come up with that! He comes up with a list of what we'll need: peppers, oranges, honey, and of course chicken. He decides since he's doing the main course, I need to come up the a vegetable. "Well, we do have frozen peas in the freezer!"
And once we're back at the apartment he starts cooking up a storm. No recipe needed. I helped out by grating orange zest (because he felt it was esential to his meal) but didn't do a whole lot else. And surprisingly, even without a lot of planning everything turned out really well.
Just don't ask me about the time he decided he would make meatloaf without bread crumbs.
But what is your cooking style like? Are you by the book like me, or able just to come up with ideas and recipes on a whim like him?
P.S. Sorry to disappoint, but I won't have a Frozen Thursday post tonight. Unless of course someone knows of any kosher for passover frozen meals? Yeah, didn't think so.
