Cooking for beginners!

Ok so after finishing this post I decided that I would try to be a great wife and have dinner ready for my husband when he got home from work. Ok, I am not the best cook so I thought, "let's just start off simple." So I decided to make tomato soup and grilled cheese sandwiches. Simple enough, right? Oh so wrong was I. I started the soup first and, keep in mind it is my first time cooking in my new house. I quickly discovered that my stove heats up fast. As the soup is heating I was fixing the grilled cheese. As I am buttering the sandwiches all of a sudden the soup over boils and spills everywhere on the stove. At least I had enough sense to take the soup off the heat. So that is the first disaster. Next, on my frying pan, the butter is crusting up on the pan so the sandwich is sticking to it. So I try to use my spatula. Well I learned that you should not use a plastic spatula with high heat. It will melt. Oh yeah. One spatula down and about 2 grilled cheese sandwiches burnt to a crisp. I switch pans and make 2 sandwiches that are not completely burnt and Reiggin comes though the door. I thought for sure the house probably smelled like I had burned the kitchen down. But my husband is super sweet and said everything smelled great. And he ate it all and said it was delicious. He is too kind to me. Hopefully next dinner will go a little more smooth.
