If you search for some recipes online, you should be able to find something else you would be able to make without help. There are a lot of recipes, so I’m sure there would be some you would like. If you can find some other meals you could make by yourself, you could cook your own food so you don’t have to eat your dad’s anymore.
its two different problems but both involve eating as A FAMILY-so any cooking I do is for FAMILY not just for myself unless its just a lunch dish which doesn't count.
Problem 1-I like making Taco Salad a LOT. Normally in previous summers all I would make is maybe once or twice would be Taco Salad. I like making it because I can do it ALL by myself. We only had Taco Salad 4.5 times this summer because Dad is "sick of taco salad" according to Mom but we haven't had taco salad since the beginning of August that's is what 6 weeks ago. I'm sick of making "Chicken Casear salad because that's all we had this summer besides the 4.5 times we had taco salad stuff, last week's Quesadillas or leftover hot dogs from Bible Camp (back in late July) not counting the week Mom and I were out of town eatting out.
Problem 2: When Dad does the cooking I'm told I have to either eat what Dad makes (and it's either going to be either: the meat will be one of the following:
Chicken, Sausage or fish,
one of the sides will be one of the following
Perogies, Sweet Potatoes, hashbrowns, baked potatoes, or potato wedges,
the other side dish will be one of the following:
peas, carrots or corn)
my other option besides not eating what dad cooks is just to fend for my *** self which I don't want to do-not when we are suppose to be eatting TOGETHER.
But I don't think its fair I have to put up with the three or more different versions of Dad's cooking when he cooks most of the time when Mom's at work that I get sick of his cooking and yet.. despite me getting sick of those meals (the only things Dad knows how to make). Yet I'm not allowed to make "taco salad" because DAD is sick of it. If the parents say I either eat what Dad makes or fend for yourself.. I as the cook should be allowed to tell Dad the same blasted thing. I hate that Taco salad is the only "summery" salad I can make entirely on my own while both Chicken Casear salad (heck even a Sausage Caesar salad-would be better I don't need help with Sausage) or any salad involving pasta I need help with.
The only other dishes I know involve someone helping me and are more winter:
chilli (well technically I can make this on my own but if I have corn muffins need Mom's help)
Spaghetti/other pasta dishes-need help with the Pasta
Cheesy Taco "Shepard's pie" only thing I need help with is finding the lid for the pan.
Asian food-not experience with Asian food since Mom makes it normally
Mini Pizzas-need help with the cheese (not grating it).
