I find the hard part about cooking, is the cleaning up that comes afterwards.
If I could trade that off on say...D...I'd cook a lot more from scratch, bake more bread, and cakes and cookies too.
I have maintained my "new years rubbish" and have made more at home and ordered out less.
Still time, tiredness and t..being lazy, hampers my plans of grandeur.
Yes, I do make most of our meals and some of our treats from scratch, but there are some days, okay weeks, OKAY months when the memory of the giant piles of dishes once I complete this recipe entitled "1000 pots to wash" has me reaching for the take out menu.
That, and the fact that their Sweet and Sour chicken tastes better than mine.
