Cooking is for losers

Now that I am the spoiled, idle-minded girlfriend of a successful welder (living the Canadian dream doncha know) I find myself with all sorts of free time, and so have decided to learn how to cook. This is proving to be difficult as I hate almost all food that didn't come from a warm, tasty animal and most good recipes involve vegetables. I decided yesterday that spinach lasagna was a good idea as the spinach is mostly drowned in cheese which makes it tolerable. So anyway, after shopping for three different cheeses, trying to figure out the difference between tomato sauce, tomato paste and crushed tomatos, I finally managed to muster up something that passed for lasagna. Barely. It's not that it was bad, it just wasn't very good.
This may have been an end to my culinary feats were it not for the fact that I made the best pumpkin cheescake in the world today. I guess I may just have to stick to desserts, might as well get fat since I have nothing better to do. Tomorrow I try my hand at a Easter turkey, usually I just get drunk on wine beforehand and my Mom gets disgusted and cooks it for me but this time I'm going to give it a go.
Hope everyone has a great Easter!
