So I don’t think I’ve mentioned this before but my profession is actually baking. Cakes, pies, chocolates, ice cream, pastries, icing, breads, I can make ‘em all. And if you follow my blog you’ll also notice I post pictures of foods and delicous yummy treats, some made by me some being simple reposts of stuff I want to make.
But even though I am a baker, I am not a chef. I’ll take 3 hours to bake a 6 layer cake from scratch but after a days work and coming home at 6:30 in the evening, taking 15 minutes to even make rice seems like a chore. Not to mention spaghetti is a fancy dinner for myself.
I don’t know about anyone elses experiences but I’ve found that bakers and chefs love to eat really good foods..
but we often don’t eat when we’re left to our own devices -.-
I love seeing everyone’s faces when they bite into a fresh loaf of foccacia bread still warm from the oven, but will I partake in those cupcakes I just made for my family? Nope.
I love making interesting dishes at home when I take the time to marinade my chicken breast and pair it with a great salad. But how often do I do this?….maybe once every two weeks. The other 13 days? Oatmeal in the morning and sometimes no dinner when I get home.
Is that healthy? Of course not. Am I doing it on purpose? No way I love to eat! So what the heck? I could chalk it up to laziness on my part, I mean really, I cant boil some water for some spaghetti? I can’t throw some veggies on a frying pan and voila, dinner?
However I know I’m not the only one who does this, but maybe you guys could help, I live on my own so my budget is pretty tiny, my bills are over $1000 a month, and I get home too late in the day for a big prep and cook. What have you found works for low effort easy cooking? Maybe you can just yell at me to motivate my lazy butt :p
