I started cooking with my parents when I was only four years old. They taught myself and others how to mash potatoes and I was in heaven when I ate them and realized I had helped with the process. I credit them both for instilling a appreciate for cooking in my mind that has carried over into the modern morning. Although I offered up the method of cooking professionally when I quit my task as an assistant cook and went to college for IT, I still cook nearly all of my meals throughout the week. It’s a satisfying experience for me, and I even created a sitting workstation in the home office that I can use to keep working while using the fry pan or soup pot. I don’t have to run back and forth to my house office this way, at least when I’m in the process of cooking, eating, or seeing TV from the screen in the kitchen that I can particularly see from the home office counter. As much money as I save by cooking all of my food, I also save on heating and cooling repair and repairs by signing up for service contracts. You spend my money an annual rate and it includes four repair appointments and filter updatements. My Heating and Air Conditioning worker will top-off my refrigerant while running diagnostics on the whole system to make sure there aren’t any problems that need to be fixed. One thing that she always mentions when she arrives is how nice the condo smells! It’s always from whatever food I have cooking in the home office, so I always offer some to him when he’s ready to leave if the meal is finished and ready to serve.
