Have you ever thought about (I mean REALLY thought about it) the one thing you do better than other people? It isn't that easy a question. It turns out that people are often too shy to brag about themselves - when I thought about this question, I really struggled to come up with something. I could think of a billion different things my friends, family or students are amazing at, but not one for me!
Then it hit me.
Tomato sauce.
I am soooo good at making tomato sauce. I don't have a recipe. I just throw whatever I feel like in the pot. It always turns out great! I have never claimed to be a chef - I am pretty much an awful cook, but my tomato sauce is really, really tasty. The smell of all the ingredients bubbling on the stove is one of my favourite scents. I don't even mind scrubbing the little splashes of sauce off the burner later! Sometimes, when I am really curious about what it will taste like, I will grab a spoon and give it a slurp. It never fails - I always burn my mouth. I guess that's the price you pay when you are a GREAT tomato sauce chef!

What is your special talent? What is that one thing you do really well? Describe it using lots of details in a comment. I am excited to learn - maybe we can trade skills!
