K has never been an adventurous cook. Give her a recipe of fewer than ten ingredients and fewer than ten steps and she can create food that's edible. simple, but edible.
As I type, she is working out, in her brain, how to make some sort of potato, carrot, onion, celery, lentil dish for tonight. Literally typing out a recipe for herself, planning to use things in the pantry that we already have, and that will make a tasty treat. :-)
Talk about romance.
