Its probably better to be self deprecating than self defecating.
That sounds like what I eat at work on Sundays when the cafeteria is closed. "Vending machine cuisine"
Suuuuuuper lazy on Sundays when it comes to cooking lol.

In theory, theory and practice are the same. In practice, they are different.
How on earth do you do that? I'd have to keep Goober in a crate day and night.

Hopefully all works out...
Not easy. She eats metal crates. I shut her in the bedroom with the window curtains closed while I'm at work. When I'm home, I just watch her close. Have to take her out in the yard on a leash. No free run. She basically went stir-crazy after the first 48 hrs of this. Hopefully, just 3 weeks left.

I spent plenty of nights eating a "dinner" of vending machine coffee and peanut M+Ms, Pork rinds if I was lucky.





I'm Italian and love to cook anything but my wife is Irish and until recently all she ever wanted was red meat and a potato and she considered ketchup an exotic spice.

Until my now wife moved in with me my spice collection consisted of Salt, Black Pepper, and Old Bay. Vegetables were all boiled and covered in butter. Meat was fried in a pan.
She was not ok with that. I have a spice cabinet now to say the least.

Well my wife told me on Easter to make whatever I wanted for dinner.

I fired up the grill and did Ribeyes.

And for dessert... brownie sundaes with caramel and chocolate drizzle with Spanish peanuts.

Don't think she will be giving me that much freedom of choice again for awhile.

I made a bunch of stuff today. Starting with a Fruit Cobbler. I cooked some frozen mixed fruit in a pot. Added about 1/8 cup stevia and a heaping teaspoon of Cornstarch. Once boiled for a few minutes I transferred that to a 9" square baking dish. I mixed 35% cream into some homemade Bisquick Mix for the cobbler, and spooned It on top. Into the oven for 40 minutes while I started on....

Butter chicken and rice. I fried the chicken to get a crispy skin and get some flavors in the pan. Took the chicken out and put in a can of chopped tomatoes. Cooked that for a out ten minutes then added butter chicken spice and water. Brought to a boil and added the chicken back in. Simmered for about 20 minutes. While that was simmering I started on....

Glutinous rice in a rice cooker. I accidentally Put in too much water so once the rice was cooked I took some out and drained the water back into the cooker. Placed that rice on the plate and added the Butter chicken on top.

The rest of the rice looked something like rice pudding, so that's what I made it into. Added some stevia for sweetener, and some vanilla, pineapple flavoring. And some coconut and sweetened cranberries . Let that simmer for about ten minutes with the lid off. Turned out really good.

Pics in no order;

Just the right size to touch the ground.
I had bacon and tomato sandwiches. The bread was toasted though.

Pork chops with apricot ginger glaze, rice with a little ginger in it, and broccoli from Hello Fresh. The wife orders it, I cook. 3 hours later and I'm still burping ginger.
