Afraid of Salt

Ok i have to admit that i’m afraid of salt.  Not in the way that i run away when i see a pretzel, but in the fact that when i’m cooking that a pinch of salt for a vat of soup is about as much as i put in.  I do a lot of cooking on the fly so when i’m seasoning things i tend to under season.  Its not like i don’t have the spices but i can never convince myself that the amount i should put in, is the right about.  I think i have the image of chef’s just doing pinches of this and that, and not a two tablespoons.

Thankfully Joy’s been doing most of the cooking and she doesn’t have a fear of salt.  Its a don’t ask don’t tell relationship because everything is so tasty, but if i knew how much she’s putting in it would probably affect me mentally.

    Sorry baby, but sometimes Asian cooking involves fish sauce. That’s probably what makes it tasty. Next time I’ll start measuring it out. =(
