    pardonably proud of

    Hi,

    What does this sentence mean?

    She is pardonably proud of her wonderful cooking.

    Does it mean "She cooks so well that she is proud of herself and it is pardonable"?

    Thanks a lot

    Yes, her cooking is so good that she can be forgiven for taking pride in it.
