I can cook. Just not very well.

me: Oh, thank GOD you’re here.

the bee: What happened?

m: I think I may have ruined the chicken.

b: What makes you say that?

m: I’m not sure if I cooked it long enough.

b: How long did you cook it for?

m: About 15 minutes, but it feels raw to me.

b: Should we really be feeling it?

m: I think so.

b: Well, when you cut it open is the chicken pink or is it white inside?

m: It’s white but I tried some and it felt like raw in my throat.

b: *raises a concerned and skeptical eyebrow*

m: Should it be white on the outside too? Because it doesn’t look very appetizing…

b: Steff, it’s fine. It looks exactly the same as when I cook the chicken.

m: You’re just saying that. I won’t believe you til you try it.

b: Ok. (Takes bite and chews for an inordinate amount of time to eat a reasonably sized piece of chicken)

*gulps* It’s… good.

m: *waves arms in a defeated and hysterical manner* Oh my GOD! Somehow I’ve managed to make it both raw and overcooked. I’ve ruined dinner! It’s a disaster.

and poison!

b: You just need to relax. This is not a disaster and it’s not poison. It’s chicken.

m: *mumbles under breath* poison chicken…

b: *sideways glance*

m: Well?

b: Maybe…

  1. Truthfully, honestly, I have cooked chicken to where it was BURNED on the outside and FROZEN in the middle.
    So, hey, yours sounds at least like a few more minutes on the stove would cure it… Mine was… Well… uhm.
    We had pizza that night :)

  2. It’s a good thing I don’t eat chicken, cause this is probably how mine would turn out too.

      that night’s dinner was more than enough to convince me to go back to the ways of vegetarianism if for no other reason than i might never have to touch a piece of slimey, tendon-ridden bird flesh again.

  3. ahaha! well, we all have our talents. maybe you should stick to pasta. ;)

  4. when i was living in london (and far away from anyone i could call for advice) i decided to make chicken. i was so proud of myself because it actually turned out really tasty looking. it was only once i’d eaten halfway through the hunk of meat that i realized the very center was still mushy and icey.

    i died on the spot.
