Tales of a Lazy Cook

the lazy chef

The plain & short of it is this: I'm lazy. That is why I am afraid of the kitchen. The missing ingredients, the trips to the store, the dozen dirty spoons, the prep, the cook time, the cleaning; all for less than 15mins. of eating -- that's if you are even hungry after all the taste-testing you've done as you have nervously attempted perfection. Cooking is hard work.

However, in my hopes of one day becoming a domestic diva, I must power on. I'm in training, if you will -- I must take baby steps before I build to the big stuff. My most current strength test: creamed spinach w/ poached eggs via (you guessed it) Smitten Kitchen.

Part of my laziness is not reading directions carefully and checking ingredients before starting -- for example, I did not have enough spinach, but I didn't take the time to amend the other ingredients' amounts. I must say, however, it still worked, even if it didn't look like this.

Oh, and poached eggs? Not as scary as I thought with the help of this video.
