I once told someone, "I can't cook". She politely asked, "Then, what does your family eat?" I laughed, and answered, "Well, I don't cook. I heat stuff". Saying "I can't cook" probably isn't correct. I'm a fairly intelligent person. I probably could cook if I tried. That's just it. I don't want to. I don't enjoy cooking. Spending time in my cramped kitchen, creating something beautiful that is just going to disappear (hopefully!) in a short amount of time seems ridiculous to me. There are just so many other things I would rather be doing.
Like the nice lady pointed out, though, my family needs to eat. Unless I want to dine on Spam and Steak Umm's every night, my husband making dinner is pretty much out of the question. My son is five, so I can't delegate the task to him - yet.
If you're like me, and hate to cook, "Easy Eats" is for you. Even if you love to cook, there are going to be days when you are pressed for time, so "Easy Eats" is also for you! Each recipe will be posted on Thursday, and will have 10 or fewer ingredients.
If any of you have an easy recipe that you love, please share! Send me an email to firstname.lastname@example.org, with the subject title "Easy Eats", and if you have one, please include at least one picture of your finished meal. Those of us non-cookers thank you!
