Who else hates to cook?

A flurry of recent posts in the So what are you doing RIGHT NOW? thread has me wondering. Am I the only one?

I really can't stand how dinner always seems to be rolling around, again. If it were just me, I have three go-to dinners: wine and cheese, wine and nuts, wine and olives. Unfortunately, I also have to provide fodder for someone else, some of the time. All I can say is, we eat a lot of rotisserie chicken.

In my defense, I'll say that I'm not a picky eater and will happily eat whatever someone else is willing to put in front of me. I'm also a willing hand when it comes to clean up. I'd just much rather not have to produce the meal.

Not me. Though I don't do much of it anymore I love being able to make something from scratch.

I never learned how beyond basic. My son does the coking now as standing to reach stove or counter is painfully impossible. Microwave has become a much needed appliance not just a Convenience.

Me! Even though I'm a decent cook as I've gotten older I just really don't enjoy cooking. We mainly eat oven type foods.

I love to bake during the holidays though but my current stove is just so old and cooks everything uneven.

My hubby comes from a mother who cooks everything from scratch and is constantly cooking. He had to learn I'm not going to do that.

Sorry. I enjoy cooking. I make Sunday lunch most weeks and look forward to the time in the kitchen listening to the radio with a glass of wine while I chop/boil/carve etc..

I tend to take the easiest and safest, ( for me ) way to cook, I do a lot of steaming, most people think I'm just being health conscious though, so I can get away with it .

I usually get all the ingredients I need for cooking at McDonald's or Col. Sanders'.

At Katie & Issybird I have either two words or one hyphenated word.
Slow Cooker.
Issybird, is it the cooking or the planning?
I like to cook but I couldn't do it without my helpers.
https://www.amazon.com/dp/B014ZJ3JO0...ing=UTF8&psc=1
That thing will chop anything and is faster than an electric one. It is also easy to clean.
They also have a mixer.
https://www.amazon.com/Weston-Multi-...s=manual+mixer. Though I got my mixer at the mall for half the price.
Other helpers include a bread machine, a kitchenaid stand mixer and my steamers.

Though in all honesty the best thing that helps with cooking is having a well stocked kitchen.
I know that is not always possible.

If I had to start now,
I would recommend that first food chopper, a decent set of pans, cheap set of whisks, this set of measuring cups : https://www.amazon.com/Prepworks-Pro...asuring+spoons, a 4 cup glass measuring cup, and a cheap set with a spatula, spoon, slotted spoon, potato masher and a ladle.
If I had to also some stainless steel mixing bowls.
https://www.amazon.com/Cook-Home-12-...n%3A2242056011 Here is a good set of pans.
Basic kitchen gadgets:
https://www.amazon.com/Farberware-Cl...words=Utensils

There you go.

Next post will be on food.

Now I know this is not always possible but if you can have at least 2 weeks of food.
If you like chicken, stock up on chicken.
On canned and boxed goods, buy only things you like.

What I usually do is figure out what meat I want to cook that night and pull it out of the freezer.

Best two websites are allrecipes.com and food.com.

It helps if you have a variety.

Note: I do not drive so keeping a stocked kitchen is a must.
Well it was for years when we lived 10 miles from the nearest grocery store.

If you do all your grocery shopping at Ruby Tuesday's you can avoid all that paraphernalia.

We love canned chilli. Last year I bought every brand I could find looking for the best canned. I gained 15 pounds from all of that. Amour won the canned off. We love beans in our chili though.

I put it over fries too but mine are frozen fries.
