Now that my new kitchen is almost ready, I have to start getting used to cooking again. As I’ve mentioned before, using the stove or oven was prohibited for me after the accident because of the epilepsy. Also, I don’t want to think about what would have happened if I ever left the stove or oven on.
Once I reached my two years seizure free I had plans to do so many things I wasn’t allowed to do alone before, like cooking but to be honest, I really haven’t. I still stick mostly to my microwave only menu just because it’s easier except for a few easy things.
I really should have gotten more used to really using the kitchen because now that I’m going to have mine I have no excuse not to cook. Today I started sort of practicing and instead of re-heating the left over pizza on the microwave I had some shrimp and French fries. There was not a lot of cooking but I had to use the oven for both.
It was no big deal but it’s a little bit more effort than using the microwave. I’ll be taking baby steps until I have MY kitchen and I can cook whatever I want, whenever I want.
It’s so exiting!
