It's a personal issue

Great suggestion, Laurie. Baby steps.

I know that one all too well.

It's almost never that I don't feel like cooking. It's dealing with having the right stuff thawed when I need it.

When I bought my first microwave oven in the mid eighties, I thought I was buying a machine that would turn the rocks in my freezer into food in no time flat. I was sorely disappointed. I didn't want it for cooking.
