Tuesday light bulb|You know more than you know

I just got back from my walk about and stopped at the fridge (after plowing down an ample helping of last night’s leftovers standing right there in the middle of the kitchen) and noticed this list on an envelope, magneted (is that a word?) to the fridge door:

This is what it says:

Oil
3-4 sliced garlic

Zest on lemon
med heat
Pasta
1/2 cup water fr/noodles
squeeze lemon completely
reduce

fresh Parmesan

I looked at it for a few seconds and thought “that sounds great – we should try that!” and then realized that not everyone would know that the list is really a recipe (cook the sliced garlic in oil, cook pasta in salted water, drain, reserve 1/2 cup of the pasta water, add to the oil and garlic, add the juice of one lemon and the zest, reduce sauce, toss with pasta and serve with grated Parmesan cheese).

All that to say, every once in a while I’m reminded that as much as I don’t know what I’m doing (which is what makes cooking a fun adventure), I also do know what I’m doing.

Have faith in your ability.  You know more than you know.

    I stopped over to leave a comment on your pizza, but it’s not posted yet 🙂

    Great idea on the potato pizza! It looks very pretty.
