Smells Like Pride

| Related | January 11, 2016

(I’m in my 20s and have been a vegetarian since before I learned how to cook or had any interest in cooking. I always jokingly comment on how gross my dad’s cooking is because of the meat. I work in a group home for developmentally challenged adults and one of my responsibilities is cooking meals for them. This happens via text message.)

Me: “So, for dinner my residents had homemade baked beans, kielbasa in homemade gravy, with sautéed peppers and onions over rice. And they had a Greek salad with homemade vinaigrette.”

Dad: “Wow, sounds yummy. But when I make this at home you tell me it’s yucky and complain that I stunk up the house.”

Me: “Yeah, well, I don’t have any pride invested in the things you cook.”
