It's just the two of us here, so when my husband has his twice a month Lions Club meeting, I take that opportunity to "vacation" from cooking. I usually reheat something leftover. If there are no leftovers, I also do what I've seen others do. I thought I was just weird, but after seeing several posts in this thread, I think I'm normal. I'll just make a bunch of popcorn. The old-fashioned way - on the stove with oil. Topped with real butter. Eat the whole bowl with some "adult beverage" to wash it down.
"As a girl I had zero interest in the stove." - Julia Child
This is real inspiration. Look what Julia became!
