Frozen dinners

Today I resorted to eating a frozen dinner. There were several reasons for this:
a) laziness
b) busy working on things and studying
c) laziness

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?

    whole wheat bread
    biscuits
    chocolate cake
    pumpkin bread
    pie

  2. yeah, so good poll, sholeh… definitely persian rice and fessenjoon for me. i suck at making both, and i think even if i were good at it, i wouldn’t have the patience. thank God for my mom. 🙂

  3. I wish that I could make Indian food. I need to get Caitie to teach me. I need to cook more, but I am completely spoiled with Andrew’s mom. She is like the best cook in the world, so I am always well fed. Ask Shmange. She knows what I am saying.
