  •  Oh yes, I can cook, but after a 12 hour day (3+ / 0-)

    which most of mine now are, I just don't feel like it. I used to do the "cook everything on one day of the week thing" but right now in my life it seems work is the thing to do every day. My savings account likes it and I'll take it while it lasts! ;-)

      I'm a stupid cook. I've never been successful at it, and I don't like standing at the stove or cutting things up.

      My easiest dinner is 1-get out rice cooker. 2-add water and Rice-a-roni. 3-push button

      Take off shoes, lie down and relax. Fix drink. Whatever.

      Ding!

      Dinner's ready.

      Get spoon. Eat from cooker.

      Sometimes I'll add a handful of frozen veggies to Rice-a-roni. But that's about the extent of my cooking.

        until I got good knives. The difference is amazing. I would still prefer good knives and a staff.

        unfortunately, I'm the only one who eats it and I like it SO much that I can't make a package last more than one sitting.

        and one package really is too much for one meal, even if you don't have anything else with it!
