I fired up the crock pot to make a beef roast (a teeny, tiny roast!) for dinner. I find I am eating a lot of pork chops (I freeze them individually), meatballs, and soups these days. Easy to make in quantity and/or freeze in individual servings. Beef roast for two days will be a nice change of pace.
I’ve never really enjoyed cooking – well, some of my kid-friendly recipes, like octopus dogs, were fun to make for my enthusiastic children, but octopus dogs are not exactly a homemade gourmet masterpiece. (In case you don’t know, they are hotdogs cut before boiling so they will look like an octopus when done)
Maybe it is the budgetary constraints that limit cooking creativity here at my house.
Maybe it is the time I’d rather spend doing something else.
Maybe it is the chirping of the smoke detector that criticizes my technique.
I really don’t know why I dislike cooking, I just do.
If I invite you for a meal, and I’ve cooked for you rather than serve take out, just know you should feel very honored.
