The reluctant cook and mageirocophobia

FamilyHumorFood⭐ Editor's Picks

"…Hey, swear. While this holiday season is going to be by and large home centric with family, there are several others that I remember that were fun with friends coming over to bring in the New Year party and so on. But what I dreaded the most was preparing for the occasion and specifically the cooking part of it. I fear cooking for large groups of people there. I said it, and I discovered that this fear even has a name. It's called Maggie of Phobia.…"

"…Hey, Srija, this is a great topic. You know, I assume that pretty much any fear that exists. There's some long, hard word to pronounce that's associated with it. In the case of cooking, cooking is something I've always really enjoyed since I was a young kid. It was something I sort of had to do out of necessity.…"

"…Shija. You know, I don't have to reply to this, you know, way too well how terrified I am of cooking for big groups. You know, I'm freaking out right now with the a Christmas holiday coming and people coming over for the weekend. I just told you about it. So yes, I guess. What was that word again? Mage. Homophobic as h***.…"

"…And I found it incredibly tiring, exhausting and stressful because it's a multi dish activity and everything has to be served at the same time. It's all going to be hot or cold at the same time, whichever one. And although I love cooking and I like being creative, cooking for large amounts of people just stresses me out. Man, it's too tiring. And by the time we all sit down to enjoy the meal, I'm not that happy.…"

"…Hey, thank you, everyone, for your responses. And from what I gather, Taylor Sudha, I think it's our moms and grandmas who have at some point or or the other sort of put us in a kind of an off of their talent to do this. These huge spreads that they come up with. My mom does that even today, it's another story that after the day she's kind of out for a week out of the kitchen.…"
