There is probably (except my Wife and family) two thingsthat are very important to me - Folk Song & Music and COOKING!
I wondered how many other Mudcatters have the same interests?
I even write every night in my diary what I have cooked, and have many years records to look back on. In a similaar way, if I sing somewhere, I write down what I performed, so that next time I sing in the same place, I don't repeat myself - something I learnt from Vin Garbutt years ago!!
I try not to repeat myself when cooking also - as I find the same thing over and over again can be a little boring...

I do, certainly. Absolutely hate following rigid recipes. I mostly like Middle Eastern, Caucasian and Ukranian cooking.

I spent many years working in catering and still love to put on a big dinner... I love to cook and I love to experiment... but I hate watching certain family members smother it in mustard, sauce or seasonings without tasting it. I might just as well serve up a plate of sauce. I swear if I boiled the contents of the cat litter tray and put brown sauce on it, he'd eat it.

I'm also at a loss when it comes to different meals. Certain family members don't like many vegetables and refuse to try anything different.

Still at least they're not so rigid as my parents... you could tell what day of the week it was by what lunch was served.

Sunday, roast pork or chicken, veggies, roast potatoes.
Monday, cold leftover roast pork or chicken with fry up of leftover veggies from Sunday, boiled potatoes.
Tuesday, stew made from any remaining roast pork or chicken with boiled potatoes.
Wednesday - market day/shopping, canned vegetable soup or tinned ham with boiled potatoes.
Thursday, beans on toast.
Friday, tinned ham, boiled potatoes.
Saturday, chips, sausages, baked beans.

I still remember 25+ years after leaving home.... and can hardly face a plain boiled potato even now!

Tom Bliss has a composition that would be of interest to you.

It is a recipe and prep instructions

The vocabulary is of, and this is the clever part,                                                                                                   place names, mainly English, I heard it on Monday.

I find that some records, or even just tracks, awake particular cravings in me. I cannot, for example, listen to "A Tale of Ale" for long without a tankard in hand, and as for Hamish Moore's "South Bank of the Spey"...

Anyone else have this problem?

You call that a problem? I call that one of the reasons for sticking with the tradition!

I'd say I'm more of a baker than a cook. Cakes & cookies are more my line.

As Adam McNaughton put it

Cholesterol, Cholesterol
My chance o' surviving is small
The way that I dine I'm on course for angina
But I love my cholesterol

Tim, do you deliver?

If you haven't already heard it, listen to Nicole Murray's (Cloudstreet) "The Wooden Spoon".

While making breakfast I often sing

Omelette, gentile omelette,
Omelette, je te mangerai.
Je te mangerai les oeufs, etc.

Now, you've done it! You have uncovered another of my passions, the others being the arts, the outdoors and the obvious. I do nearly all the cooking in our house. I spent over 30 years in the wine and food business, and can't seem to shed the need to express myself in the kitchen. While there are countless songs that refer to foods or are sung in praise thereof, I'm having trouble recollecting a food-related song that I can actually do while cooking. It would have to be a capella, since I need my hands for other things.

On the other hand, a glass or two of wine can lead to limitless possibilities... Have some Madeira, M'dear?
