I do know my way around the kitchen and the pit. thanks to time spent with my mother and grandmothers.
now I think that thanks to HBT and you guys here, I am turning into a fair brewer.

I've always enjoyed cooking, since I was a little kid. 'nuff said.

I enjoy cooking, but it is just about impossible to cook for one without filling a freezer or two or six with "leftovers". Making 40 servings of beer at once makes sense, but 40 servings of lasagna?

Absolutely! I do that all the time, quite intentionally. Slice and wrap up servings of that lasagna and pop them in the freezer. Next time you work late and come home starving but too tired to cook, a home cooked meal is just a few minutes away.

I understand that modern lifestyles often mean that you don't have time to cook fresh food every night. Still, if people took this approach instead of drive-thru junk food or fat/sodium laden frozen meals, our country would be a lot thinner and a lot healthier.

The same things that I enjoy about cooking draw me to brewing. One of the things that helped move me lightyears down the track was learning what the various things in a brew contribute. Not following someone else's recipe, knowing how to come up with your own.

Sez you?
I love to cook, BBQ and I've been a baker for 20+ years. The reason I like brewing is that it gives me the ability to do what I can no longer do at work , create my own recipes.

My wife asked me to put the ham in the oven after she left the house. I had to go and ask the kids if you put water in the roaster with the ham. Apparently you do. I was too embarrassed to ask if the mesh that is covering the ham is supposed to come off. It looked pretty imbedded into the skin of the ham so I left it on. Nobody yelled at me so I guess it's supposed to stay on. In my own defense, there were no heating instructions on the package like there are on most other meals I make.

I can barbecue but SWMBO makes the marinade and the barbecue sauce. I think I'm pathetic.

Short answer, Pseudo. This brewer isn't a chef.
