New and Bewildered
I titled this New and Bewildered because I am both. New explains itself, but I am bewildered because I have never joined a forum like they have nowadays. I belonged to some forums way, way back, even before there was an internet, but those worked differently and two of the ones I was in morphed into long, long term email groups that continue to this day. This format is one I've never tried before and I hope I can find a way to make it "flow". Right now I'm just scratching my head.
I am a retired social worker. I lost my soul mate of 48 years three years ago. I have been an avid cook since I was a child. I had one year of home ec in junior high and I wish everyone could have an experience like I had. I learned so much and continue to reference things I learned in that class that are tucked away in my brain. That was 58 years ago and I'm still thankful for it. I can't say I have any particular thing I like to cook as I dabble in many European cuisines, Chinese, Thai, Indian, Moroccan and other north African, Latin American of various kinds. I do not enjoy baking. I can do it and do it well, but I don't LIKE it, LOL. Right now I'm faced with Thanksgiving. The cooking I love. The baking I do not, emphatically.
