Preface: On the menu for dinner tonight-- Pre-seasoned individually wrapped frozen salmon fillets that you simply unwrap, throw on a baking sheet and cook. As a side dish I opened up a can of green beans and heated it up in the microwave. A little salt and pepper on the beans, a squeeze of lemon juice on the fish. Done. Not my proudest meal, but...

Maggie: (After taking a few bites) Mmmmm, oh my gosh MOM! This is sooooo good!!!
Me: (Blank stare)
Maggie: I'm serious mom, you are the best cook ever!
Me: (Blank stare)
Maggie: Mom, I think you should write a cookbook. And you could even put your name on the front of it! And you could have your own cooking show! You could make food just like this and people would be saying, "Oh man! This lady can cook real good!"
Me: (Blank stare)
Maggie: Mom? Do you hear what I'm talking about?
Me: I'm flattered sweetie...Thanks for the complements! Now, can you finish your dinner?
Maggie: (Poking at her fish with her fork) Can you heat it up in the microwave? It's not very good when it's not heated up.

Even so, I would buy your cook book because you do cook real good.
