This past week has taught me two important lessons. First, blending a can of sweet corn into a fruit smoothie one is making may not be as clever an idea as it seems. Secondly, it is possible to salvage such a smoothie by heavily diluting it with milk and bananas.

I suppose such hard-won insights may seem laughable to many, but I am a reluctant bachelor with primitive but creative cooking skill. Trial and error is my harsh mistress.

If further illustration is needed, know that the first time I made chorizo I didn’t realize I was expected to remove the plastic casing before eating it — not even after I ate it. It was only after the second time I cooked the spicy Mexican pork sausage that I accidentally discovered how much better it tasted sans plastic.

One might say I am an impressive cook, in a sense...
