Would you like to eat this??

As some of you know, I love eating - but I'm obviously not able to prepare any food by myself. I always end up burning it. And that's what happened to me right now! (With soup! I think I'm the only person in the world who manages to burn soup. ;_; )

I just came home from school and normally, my mum is here to prepare us food, but today it's just my sister because Mum has to go grocery shopping. My sister stayed home all day today but didn't prepare any food because she is sick. She ate a spinach-and-feta-pizza yesterday and apparently, it wasn't very fresh anymore. So after throwing up a couple of times, she didn't feel well enough to go to school today. Instead, she is more grumpy than usual. Well, it's not as if I don't understand, but it kind of reduced my pity for her to a minimum.

Especially since she didn't do anything against my food being burned! Okay, so maybe it was just my own fault. I left the kitchen to clean up the litter box and was stupid enough to put the pot on the stove when I left the room. Of course I thought that I would be back in a minute or something, but somehow it took me longer than expected. And when I returned to the kitchen, the food couldn't be safed anymore.

For those who wonder now how in the world I managed to burn a SOUP, it was like this: I had a bag of instant soup which is in fact only dried vegetables, and you have to put it in a pot with some oil and heat it up (and stir it, which I didn't do, damn it!) and afterwards, you pour water over it and cook it for some time.

Well, this is what my delicious soup looks like now (does someone want to eat it? Anyone??):
Verbrannte Suppe ._.

By the way, my little sister is surprisingly sweet to me since I burned my soup. Let's see how long it will last! ;)

Don't feel bad. It's really easy to burn soup. I've done it many times. In fact, now I have a new rule. Never put anything on the stove to cook, even on low, and then go off to check my email for 'a minute'.

Good rule. I have to remember that! But I always want to do so many things at the same time, and then this is what happens...

I know, me too. But when you stand there waiting for your food to cook/heat up, it takes so long that you think, "Well, what else could I be doing right now?" But I've wrecked a lot of food that way. Now if I must leave the stovetop even for a minute, I turn everything off.

I have another rule about brushing my teeth: Never do anything else while I'm brushing them. Too many times I went off to do something else with my toothbrush in my mouth and ended up getting toothpaste stains on my clothes.

I do that with the tooth brush, too! :D And I'm actually pretty good at it and nearly always manage to not drop any of the toothpaste. But sadly, my parents don't like me going around in our flat with a tooth brush in my mouth, so I can't do that very often.

Still looks tasty to me... or that could be because I am so used to eating stuff I have ruined that I'm used to it by now!

Haha, well I'm sure you wouldn't want to eat it anymore if you had any idea how badly it smelled! :D (By the way, the soup was supposed to be kind of colourful because of all the veggies in it, instead of this brownish mud. xD)

I guess we're soul sisters when it comes to preparing food. xD Brit should give us some cooking lessons!

I probably could cook if I gave it a good try, it's just, there are so many OTHER things I would rather be doing than cooking, and seeing as I live alone, there's no point making a fancy meal for one person.

I could be reading a book, or fanfiction, or playing a video game, or writing, or watching tv or walking into things (or even sleeping - it's been an exhausting week!).

I don't think I'll ever be a real grown up. I'm too self indulgent.

I doubt that I could cook even if I tried. I'm widely known for my two left hands, lol.
Oh dear, how will I survive once I move into an own apartment?! D:
