-Dasmariñas Village, Makati, Manila, Philippines-
I can’t recall if I’ve ever cooked dinner for another man, just the two of us.
I had put the steak in the microwave to defrost, but inadvertently left the power setting on HIGH. A few minutes later, the smell of cooking meat made me realize the gaff. Fortunately, it was raw enough in the center to allow for a quick sear in the pan, which resulted in a fairly decent steak, even though I could still detect a bit of that odd odor that comes from nuked proteins.
