Wooden Spoon

A tool for mixing and stirring during cooking and baking

Once you start to see the onions and tomatoes turn into a paste, it’s about time to add the meat. I personally do not like to add oil to my stews because I think it really makes it excessively oily. If you must however, go ahead and fry the meat in a separate;


A usually broad, shallow and open container for domestic use i.e cooking

This way you can shallow fry it and not have to deal with excess oil dripping from your meat, then add it later to the cooking pot. At this point I would go ahead to add a little bit of salt, black pepper, red chilies, cayenne, paprika and curry powder. Yes, I love me my chili I think more for the rush than anything else. I however prefer to add all my spices together in a;



A small bowl shaped container for drinking that typically has a handle

It can be your regular old household drinking cup or a store bought measuring cup. Either way, you need something to use to get your quantities down, whether you deal in eyeballing like myself or specifics.

Or a


A round hollow dish used for food or liquid that is usually without handles


That way I am able to get rid of any lumps that will almost always form whenever you are mixing dry and wet ingredients. Your trustee cup and bowl will probably be your most important tools in the kitchen because they will be useful for mixing, fetching, separating, washing and holding your ingredients.

Now back to the story; so we’re getting into the groove of it now, you know, knowing each other, laughing at each other’s’ dry jokes. I believe it was the food and the fact that I wasn’t paying that made the situation a whole lot more bearable.

Meanwhile Jaye and myself had naturally began to know each other a whole lot more. Not in the sense of Frank and Lyn’s rather uncomfortable PDA but more so in a deeper, ‘I think I like you and I want to know more about you’ way. It was actually rather impressive, I know. The antisocial birdie was starting to take flight and it was actually looking really great. No weirdness so far, I held my farts in like a respectable gentleman and maintained eye contact whenever she was talking to me even though my eyes could have wondered in so many other places. It was actually nicer than I had imagined. If this was what time with friends chilling after work was like I certainly could get used to it.

“Hey Jack, there’s this new place I discovered that I just have to show you.”

There was the balloon pop that I had been waiting for. Nothing came this easy where Frank was involved, no matter how innocent it seemed at first.


“Where exactly is this new place.”

“I don’t know, it’s a surprise…”

“I’m not sure that I like the idea of that, plus I really need to get going home.”

“Come on, don’t be such a spoilsport! Aren’t you enjoying yourself?”

“That’s not the point.”

“You’ll get home when you’ll get home. Just do this for me. I need this.”

“Fine, but you owe me!”


FYI, all this was happening telepathically. No words whatsoever, so in reality, what was really happening was this.

Frank laughs and raises his brows, shooting me a wink. I turn away and graze my neck and nose slightly with my fingers. He fidgets and twitches his head slightly, grimacing his face. I gently squint my eyes and motion for him to nonchalantly look through the window, laughing at Lyn’s joke but not really paying attention. He pouts and creases his brows then rapidly relaxes them before Jaye could notice. Then came those puppy dog eyes. I was such a sucker.

“Sure thing…”

Haha…Classic Jack.

Serving Spoon

A spoon with a large shallow bowl making it great for serving many different foods

This is the point where we get to add the coriander and bell peppers/green chili and let it boil for just a minute under high heat then switch it off. The food is now ready to go to your;


A flat dish typically circular and made of china from which food is eaten or served

With your;


An implement consisting of a small shallow oval or round bowl on a long handle used for eating, stirring and serving food

Or your;


An implement with two or more prongs used for lifting food to the mouth or holding it when cutting and knife where necessary.

And yeah, that is pretty much it. We got to go through the basics of the kitchen while listening to my usual blabbering…haha. What was that? You want to know what surprise they had in store for Jack? Well then you might just have to stick around Dimples’ kitchen to find that out now won’t you…Haha.


Make sure to also catch up with the rest of the YOU’RE SUCH A TOOL posts. Also if you liked this post or simply passed by and wanted to say hello, i’d definitely love to hear from you.
