There are moments when I am itching to cook, perhaps more than I even want to eat. I enjoy the process, the apron-wearing, cookbook flipping, vegetable dicing, oven preheating journey to the table.
And there are moments when I just want to plop down at my table and shove food into my mouth as quickly as fork can move. These usually occur after a hard workout or a very slow day in office. When I am tired and I am hungry, I am a monster.
In these moments, I become my own Sandra Lee, and go the semi-home-made route. I turn to pantry staples. I put on my assembly line worker fingers and crank out sustenance in under 5 minutes flat. Sometimes I revel in the process—-Sometimes I want results!
