As others have said, we simply don't cook things we dislike. However, I love homemade Worcestershire, but dislike grating fresh horseradish.

Christmas dinner with all the traditional trimmings. Two days of work and all gone in 1/2 an hour.

My family would never be happy with a non-traditional Christmas meal, so I bite the bullet when it's my turn to host it.

Can't you buy part of it? The turkey? Or some sides? So you can enjoy the day???

There are very few things I do not enjoy cooking and eating. I think, if I had to pick one or two, it would be meatloaf as it seems mine do not always turn out well and I do not like the grating part of horse radish, lemon zest or ginger. Otherwise I just can' think of a thing..

I don't make anything that calls for deep frying, yet I love most things deep fried. And I hate cooking fish, but could eat it 4-5 days a week.
I save all things I hate to cook for eating out and enjoy them all the more being served.

I never cook anything unless it is among my most favorite items. Keep the onions out away from under your eyes, when cutting them. The fumes rapidly rise straight up. Fresh onions in the fall, are much worse for stinging the eyes.

I dislike cooking large pieces of meat like a roast or a turkey, but have to do it sometimes for family dinners. I especially dislike dealing with the leftovers from a large piece of meat.

Don't open your mouth while chopping onions. Close your mouth before you cut into the first one and don't open it again, not to talk to anyone, not to breathe. I learned this only recently and wish I'd known it 30 years ago; my eyes have not stung or watered since.

I usually chill the onion a bit and it helps a lot. Also a little dash of vinegar on your cutting board before chopping the onion helps too.

That is how I feel about Thanksgiving. I start getting ready the week before. But I actually donít mind the actual cooking. It is just so tiring. And people want to eat, and then watch a football game. While people seem to want a traditional feast, they honestly donít take much time to enjoy it. Or thatís the way it seems to me.

Turnips or asparagus. Both carry a stench that is unbearable to my nostrils.
