Cooking Disability Style

Although I love to watch cooking shows I’m not a cook by any means unless you count microwave ovens. Come to think of it you don’t see too many TV chefs showing you how to make dinner with the microwave. Back in the day when I was a lot stronger physically and a bit more independent than I am now, I could do pretty good with a frozen entrée in the microwave oven. Nowadays I get someone else to do it — like Norm — but I don’t let him use the microwave too often. I prefer my frozen entrées reheated in the oven. Occasionally we have better than frozen entrées for dinner. Like tonight were going to have left over turkey and all the trimmings thanks to our friends who had us over for Thanksgiving dinner yesterday. They gave us half of the leftovers since they were going out of town for the weekend. So, my advice to those of you with disability issues is to get someone else to do the cooking as often as possible.

    You know what you be interesting (and needed)? A cooking show that has all kind of tips for people with disabilities. Just imagine…the host could be someone like Rachael Ray, only with a disabilty. He or she could have all kind of guest cooks visit the show and have viewers send in their tips and stuff. I’d watch it. I’d even produce a show like that if I had the money.

    That’s a great idea!
