So I started “training” for my MasterChef audition.
Right now, training mostly consists of me making a really depressing list of all of the things I don’t know how to do. And all of the kitchen gadgets I would like to have.
And I started the actual cooking portion of my training by burning the first three things I tried to cook.
Cupcakes. I burnt CUPCAKES.
I have never burnt cupcakes before.
So I could do what I’ve done so many times before, and throw up my hands and say “this is too hard and I totally can’t do it”.
But where would that get me? Would I reach my goal? Would I accomplish anything outside of going back into my cave and sitting in the corner, clutching Ulla (my KitchenAid mixer) and growling “Gollum” at anyone who dares to try and visit.
But I cannot do that. I cannot give up and I cannot surrender my dream. No matter how silly it is, I will not walk away without trying.
So burnt biscuits aside, I’m soldiering on.
