The other night this little peanut, who belongs to Bossy’s brother and his wife, spent the night. Bossy awoke to the sounds of pots and pans, and then more pots and pans, and then the sound of a spatula in a pan, and then the brief smell of something smoky, followed by the smell of something yummy.
Bossy descended the stairs to discover that Bossy’s daughter had prepared a batch of scrambled eggs for her cousin. By all accounts they were delicious, but Bossy couldn’t remember when her daughter learned to prepare scrambled eggs. Then Bossy saw this:
Bossy made this scrambled eggs recipe for her daughter many years ago using images because Bossy’s daughter couldn’t yet read.
In Bossy’s own youth, the first thing she ever prepared herself was Macaroni and Cheese.
Next Bossy became adept at making her morning cinnamon toast and hot chocolate. Or maybe the toast and hot chocolate came before the Mac and Cheese.
And then Bossy began really cooking, including dinner because Bossy’s mother was sometimes out of town. Bossy remembers her earliest food experiments resulted in goulash, which Bossy’s father seemed to enjoy.
Bossy can recall her earliest cooking ventures in this way: Figured out sautéing onions and garlic saves what comes after.
Which is what today’s Ten-Word Challenge is all about. In exactly ten words, can you tell Bossy and her council about your earliest cooking experiments?
