Story Time- I Tried Cooking Yesterday

Yesterday I went into a realm that continuously seems to exist beyond my comprehension. I went into the kitchen to try to cook but not with the microwave my trusted friend.

As you can see from the picture above, the result was not advantageous.

I tried to cook some chicken with vegetables in water. The idea was a good one of trying to eat healthy. One major flaw in the idea was not factoring in me cooking.

I started the chicken and veggies cooking and then returned to my laptop to check on a few things. After about 20 minutes, I remembered I was cooking something. I went to check and saw that I had burned the food beyond recognition.

In my defense, when I cook with my microwave, it shuts off automatically for me after the popcorn setting time has run out. It even beeps to let me know.

But not the stove top. It is not helpful at all. It does not shut off on its own and it does not beep for me. It is entirely unreliable. The stove top is an archaic contraption from a bygone era. The microwave is an invention of the modern era.

Fortunately for me in life, there is someone I can count on all of the time. He is always dependable. Even if I mess up, he is there. He doesn’t care if I am the worst cook ever. He knows my talents are to found somewhere else.

We can always count on Jesus. He is the eternal consistent we can depend on. Hebrews 13:8 says:

“Jesus Christ is the same yesterday and today and forever.”

We can depend on Jesus. He is not like us. He is not like me a person who can cook on a stove top one day and the next time I try it is a disaster. He is perfect and the wonderful news is that he loves us even though we mess up.

One last thought would be whose kitchen should I cook dinner in? Should I cook in Dawn’s, Deandra’s, Beverley’s, Brendra’s, Ruelha’s, or Tina’s? You can vote by commenting.

Thank you for reading. God Bless.

  1. πŸ˜‚ I love what you say though – your talents lie elsewhere. We all have our strengths and weaknesses and Jesus will guide us and love us through them. I vote Brenda! πŸ˜‰

  2. How rude of that stove! Absolutely no regard for your meal, your time or your efforts. Tsk tsk. It needs a time out for sure.

    I love the segue though, our Daddy is reliable and dependable. Hallelujah!

    As for the cooking, I’m nominating, Dawn. She needs some more excitement πŸ€£πŸ˜‰

  3. Lol…. this reminds me of my little brother. He would always start cooking something and then wander away from the stove. My mom had to rescue what he had begun. I’m glad that God finishes what He starts. Don’t leave the stove unattended! Lol! Be like God. πŸ˜ƒ

  4. Try using the timer on the microwave when you cook on the stove. πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ I’m thankful the Lord is reliable unlike your stove. If I remember correctly you have never had Jamaican food so I vote for Dee and Beverley since they can teach you how to cook it. (Best wishes ladies! πŸ˜‚)

  5. Matt, I always enjoy your cooking stories! It appears the popcorn setting on the microwave is your best bet. I vote for the nearest fire hall kitchen for your next stove top dinner cooking attempt. God gave you other greater gifts to share.

  6. I can’t believe I missed this great story. I also suggest that you cook in Dawn’s kitchen. She is very patient. I think you should try to cook in the crock pot next time. You can set the time and it will go off. Crockpots are forgiving. Microwaves are unhealthy.

      1. I hope you will get it as a gift or you can order on line. They are great investments. You will not regret it. I used my first crockpot for almost twenty years.

  7. Very funny! Even the best of cooks have bad days! I vote for Dawn. Also, try investing in an “airfryer” love it, best invention and cooks better than a microwave and stovetop.
