There have been various instances that have led Americans to believe that Molly is a bad cook:
EXHIBIT A: North Carolina and the grilled cheese.
Molly butted the "inside" of the bread instead of the "outside."
EXHIBIT B: Setting off the fire alarm in Lexington, Va.
The fire alarm was set off numerous times, prompting her roommates to place a sign restricting Molly's kitchen use unless under strict supervision.
If everyone wasn't so quick to label Molly a "bad cook" you would come to understand that the grilled cheese incident was only a time tested, age ole family recipe passed down by her grandmother. And the fire alarm going off so frequently was only becasue she had a major crush on one of the Lexington fire fighters.
Because of your hesitation to let Molly cook you have missed out on some pretty spectacular meals. And when I say "pretty" not only am I using it as a strange measure of degree but also as a literal measure of beauty. Her presentation is top notch.
So far on this trip Molly has prepared a stir fry with rice, grilled chicken, and vegetables. I can honestly say that the germans were quite jealous. She can make a mean spaghetti and wowed Mike and myself with an amazing fired egg sandwhich complete with tomato, chesse, and onion. And she didn't even break a yoke.
Beverages with the meals? Yup, she has that under control too. It's picturesque watching her uncork a wine bottle with her swiss army knife.
There has been one incident in which Molly cut her finger while slicing a tomato which may try to disprove my above statements but it turns out that she was just giving me a safety demonstration about the dangers of bleeding while cooking since I'm so inclined to bleed. Not only is she a good cook but she's a saint as well.
You are all missing out on one of Molly's greatest skills. I hope that upon our arrival back into the States you will accept Molly's inviation to a dinner party. She's a master with the camping stove and wok. Mike even bought her a second pot to increase the size and variety of her brilliant meals.
And while you are all eating a ridiculous spread next Thursday, I want you to stop and thing what you'll be missing here. That's right.
