Watching Cooking Show's....Can't Cook
I do this every day. I have the TV on, usually with the volume turned down low, but not so low that I can't hear what is being said. I work on my computer, listen and look at the TV from time to time to see what the TV Chef's have to say. My objective? Well... maybe, just maybe, some of those cooking skills will enter my body through osmosis .....
I love to see all the fabulous, mouth-watering meals that these people can "easily" (using that term loosely!) throw together. And I think..."Ooooo I'm going to try to make that!" of course, I know I won't because ... want to know what I have in my fridge at this moment? Here, I'll show you!
Now a "cook" might look in my fridge and say there's enough ingredients in there to whip up a feast! Oh, I beg to differ... Probably 80% of the item's in my fridge are expired, and now that I have exposed the interior of my fridge to the online world, all I really see is that I need to clean!
The drawer's have fresh broccoli, tangerines, Ruby-Red grapefruits, red grapes and a "mondo" bag of carrots...all of which are edible.
So tonight I won't be fooled by Rachael Ray's claim's of "thirty minute meals", no, I've got her beat...my dinner will take three minutes and I will be full and satisfied with something I grab out of the old "ice-box"... the vision is already forming, it will have something to do with Tillamook cheese, already sliced.
Sorry "Rache" .... no, I'm really not sorry :)
Oh WOW! My day just got better! I see on the bottom shelf, in the dark recesses of the back of my fridge, there's a bottle of Mudslide! Alcohol doesn't go bad, does it?
