It's no secret to my friends that I hate to cook. I loathe it. If I could afford to eat out every single meal I would!
Before I had children and lived on my own, I would live off of fast food or corn-dogs and mac n cheese.
Now, I have 2 little people always complaining they are hungry! UGH!!
(Really, you just ate umm... 5 hours ago, I'm not hungry why are you?)
Chris is an amazing cook, and he suggested I watch the cooking shows maybe that would teach me something and give me inspiration. I watched those damn shows for years and they did nothing but make me hungry.
I lack imagination, Chris can take any 3 ingredients and make a freaking meal out of it.
"See Ellen, was that so hard? You could have done that!"
"Oh hush and give me my plate!" That's usually my reply to that comment.
I don't understand how people can even want to stand in the kitchen hunched over a pot, pan or a counter for any amount of time. I get bored too easily.
Mac n Cheese
BBQ Chicken in the crock pot (my kids won't eat it anymore I made it too many times)
Frozen Pizza (yes, that counts I had put it in the over and cut the shit up)
I lack love and tenderness when it comes to cooking.
And, my kids are so damn picky! Yep, I'm going there I'm blaming the kids. Why should I cook anything that they either refuse or piss and moan about it.
The only things the kids will eat is chicken. I'm out of ideas...
So, I'm calling all cooks and people with picky kids to please, please help me!!
I'm on my knees here... believe you me, I do not get on my knees often! ;)
I'm taking suggestions here, recipes (nothing too hard).. website to refer me too.
I don't expect to fall in love with cooking, just something to keep the kids from bitching and moaning.
Thanks in advance!
