  •  My savior is the rice cooker (3+ / 0-)

    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.

    I am progressive. I am liberal. I make no apologies. - Kos

      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!
