Today I resorted to eating a frozen dinner. There were several reasons for this:
b) busy working on things and studying
Anyways, it was a Michelina’s Pepper Steak & Rice entree (although it really is more of a snack). I decided to check out the ingredient listing (which I really should have done before I purchased it, but oh well).
Over 35 ingredients. In that tiny little package.
Now, if you know me, you know that I love to cook, and I do it nearly every day. I have never, EVER needed more than 20 ingredients for a dish. Often I need only 10. It kind of blew my mind.
Also, even though it was a rice dish, it had wheat products in it (allergy, remember?), so that is no good. So much for quick and easy food! It looks like I’m going to spend a majority of my lifetime cooking.
Time for a poll: What is a dish that you love to eat but simply do not have the time, facilities, or skills to make?
