Christmas Cooking

Sorry for the late upload. This is a story about the first time someone tried to cook the dinner alone, and how they failed at doing so.

“Yes, I finally get to cook Christmas Dinner,” he said excited. It was Christmas day and Jack was in charge of cooking the Christmas dinner for the party his family was hosting later that night. He started his journey of cooking by looking in the cupboard and grabbing spices and herbs.

“The recipe said that I needed, : 1 tbsp of garlic salt, 1/4 tbsp of  lemon pepper, 5 leaves of basil, 1/16 of a cup of thyme, a pinch of salt, a pinch of pepper, 1/2 of a chile pepper, 1/16 of a cup of rosemary, 1 lbs (.45kg) of beef, 1/2lbs (.23) of chicken, 1lbs (.45) of pork, 1 cup (240 ml) of ketchup, 1/2 cup (120ml) of mustard, 1 can of beef broth, and 1 cup sugar.” Jack said, while he placed all of the spices and herbs on the table. He grabbed his pan and turned the heat on High and drained the beef broth into the pan. Once the beef broth began to boil he put the lemon pepper, the garlic salt, the pepper, and the salt into the broth.

“I hope this taste good.” Jack said to himself. Jack walked over to the fridge and got out the 3 different types of meat. He placed them on the table and opened them. He poured the beef broth into another glass and put the beef, chicken and the pork into the hot pan.

“Okay I will just leave them to simmer,” Jack said forgetting to turn down the heat on the stove. Leaving the room, the meat in the pan began to heat up. Jack decided to sit in a chair forgetting about the dinner he was cooking. Slowly, the meat caught on fire creating an abundance of smoke all throughout the house.

“FIRE!” Jack yelled in dismay running to the kitchen to put out the fire. “Crap, crap, crap, I forgot to turn the heat down!” Jack exclaimed.

After Jack put out the fire, he looked at the mess he made. “Ohh no! I wasn’t suppose to mess this up. This recipe was supposed to be really easy.” He said looking at the pile of coal in the pan.

“Maybe this is what I deserve, a lump of Coal…” Jack said walking out of the kitchen, his shoulders slouched from sadness.
