My mom she just had an operation so she is in hospital and dad is with her there. There's only me and my brother here at home. Dad called and gave us clear orders to COOK food and not to BUY any food from market..while they are out!!! Its like a disaster!!! My maid just got married and she left. As a responsible daughter I am helping my parents as much as possible from washing clothes, doing the dishes, cleaning the entire house and some outdoor works as well.. I am not complaining. But now he wants me to COOK food at home as well!!! Oh my GOD... We don't have even an exhaust fan in our kitchen !! And its really sweating time in kitchen specially in these summers!!! And on top of that I don't even know how to cook food myself!! Today as my parents are away I woke up in the morning and got myself fresh around 10 am.. and started making the breakfast.. will you believe I finished around 1.30 pm..!! It ended up as a brunch rather than a breakfast!!! Well that's ok as the only present member of the family was my brother and he was still sleeping till that time.. lol!! pheww.. But I really had a hectic morning today!! Man I do need some one to at least cook us the food!!! HELP!!!!

pick some things that are more simple. make a sandwich and grill the bread on the stove is one idea that isn't hard or too time consuming. another time make a fancy salad with meat. easy throw together meals.

I asked my brother what does he want for breakfast .. he lives in a hostel and he told me he didn't have a good heavy meal since a long time .. so I thought if I could make him some "rotti" (Indian bread .. with some smashed eggs.. Sandwich.. that's what I am going to do on Sunday!!! but this is for breakfast..!! What about dinner? In India we have a tradition of heavy dinner and I am too used to it. I don't what am I going to do!! Just two of us teenagers .. are just ending up making a mess!!!

i feel sorry for you. here in america you don't have to have a heavy meal. light meals are good too. if it's just you and your brother eating, then can't you just do what you want to? at my house we'd just each make our own food, so no one person has to cook for everyone. too we have our own schedules at times. i hope you get thru it okay.

yea.. that's what we thought in first place..!! We are all alone and free to make anything we want to!! But look at my parents smartness!!! they left extra money so that we can buy any stuff from outside.. just to make us cook whatever is available in the house!!! That is some rice , wheat flour and some green vegetable YUCK!!!! Well now its over as my parents are back and my dad is cooking the food.. I do all the cutting chopping work and cleaning the dishes and he cooks the food
