psa: I’ve had this draft post for months now till the first paragraph lost relevance so I’ll just go straight to the point. I hope you’re ok though 🙂
Well the first time I can say I was marvelled by the art of preparing food was when I warmed tea in the microwave – which I think I already talked about; heh, mshanijua mimi lmao. If you haven’t read it I think there’s a search bar you can use, just search tea + microwave + fool it must pop up.
Ok so this time I have come to talk about how my skills have tremendously improved over the years. I mean now my own MOTHER packs my meals for lunch. So yeah I am DEFINITELY certified.
I started following some cooking channels on Twitter and they have these great recipes – mostly American. The food looks so amazing and it just easily – slides from the baking tray or the pan or something. The first days were ROUGH cause my food would weirdly ALWAYS stick. From pastries to meats – like I always ended up scraping na kuharibu vyombo vya wazazi smh. I think I know what my first salary will be for.
Also there was this thing of grey – white smoke: every time I’d try something the kitchen would be FILLED with it everyone in the house started coughing. So you thought you were done crying when you chopped the onions lmaoooo
The first time my sister and I tried making popcorn and we BURNT them. We were so shook like instead of seeing white puffy things you see black smoke coming out of the sufuria (idk this sounds a bit racist to some extent lol) But anyway we got ahead to scrubbing everything and STILL mum found out about it without us telling her. And that is one thing that scares me till today.
Where was I? Oh yes, American recipes. I love everything about them. Except that some of them you’re to cook food? in the microwave? Microwaving for more than 2 minutes – no thanks. I mean I have personal experience. Plus the fact that some ingredients are so first world that I don’t even know what I can use as a substitute. I mean it’s all fun and games until you see sijui angaa add 22 oz of the milk of the poppy.
And finally, I am admitting that with my big age, I still can’t do chapos, ugali and/or brew tea.
By the way hamtanishow. I am not your subpar mcm kila siku tu – (i honestly don’t know how to finish that) BUT MY POINT IS with me, hutawahi kaa njaa xox.
Jesus I’ve used so many reaction pics today but oh well, anything for a post.
