If truth be known, I'd prefer ordering out for dinner every night. I just don't enjoy cooking. I tolerate it. That's not to say that I haven't had some good cooking nights and made some delicious meals. I have. The prep and the planning is what gets to me. And the clean-up.
And then there's nights like this....
A couple days ago I had finished lunch and started baking a loaf of bread in my bread machine. You can be proud of me because I needed white bread for a recipe on my menu plan later in the week, and making this loaf was putting me ahead of the game.
It was about 1:00, and the thought of dinner came to mind. I decided to check my menu plan to see what was on the schedule. It was a crock pot meal that needed to cook on low about 4 hours.
Seeing how it was 1:00 and we eat at 5:00, I decided I better get the food going in the crock pot. I threw in the ingredients, mixed them up, added the chicken breast tenders and set the crock pot on low. Done! All I needed to do after that was cook up some brown rice to serve it with.
Later at 4:30 I remembered I needed to start my rice on the stove. I went into the kitchen and lifted the lid on my crock pot because I knew it would probably need a stir.
Wait a sec! The chicken was raw. Really?!? The chicken was raw?!? How could that...? OOOOHH NOOOO!!!
It was at that moment I remembered something. Shortly after getting my crock pot set up, I decided my cell phone needed to be charged. I unplugged my can opener, so I could use the outlet for my charger. Only I didn't unplug the can opener. I unplugged the crock pot.
Um. Yeah. I'm just distracted like that.
So you can see how ordering out for dinner every night would really be to our advantage. Thank goodness, I was able to whip up a whole other meal that didn't take too much prep. I can't say I didn't grumble some about having to make TWO dinners in a day, though.
Yeah... I can't say that cooking is really my thing.
