Anyone Else Sick Of Cooking?

Looks like dinner to me!
Hey, no one noticed my question yesterday, so I'll try again. If you didn't have the kids to feed, what would you make yourself for dinner?  Personally, I'd be happy with granola and yogurt each evening - I'm sick of fussing about the kitchen when I'm already tired and just want to sit and knit. 

I'm not too sure I could sell Larry on that menu, though...

  1. My go-to meal my entire life has been Cheerios and milk. Lately, I eat it with a handful of All Bran on top, because, you know…Also, Cheerios makes a chocolate version, a small sprinkle of which can make the bowl even Cheerier. When I was really avoiding carbs I stopped eating much cereal, but I don't worry about it any more. A bowl of Greek yogurt with granola is an excellent option!

  2. Who isn't sick of cooking? I've been in charge of dinner for over 30 years and I am done. My kids show no interest in cooking, have expensive tastes (which go unfulfilled most of the time), and are also picky eaters, which leads to more irritation on my part.

    I'd eat cheese and crackers every night if I could.

  3. Amen. Cereal with milk. Maybe yogurt. NOT cooking food.

  4. Cheese and crackers for me too!

  5. I'd go for any of these. And in fact may do so tonight, since I don't have kids, don't have to cook for the cats, and my husband (who usually does the cooking anyway) has a cold and I don't want him breathing on my food. (Yeah, I have a sweet life, I know it.)

  6. Cereal or a hard-boiled egg or something I can nuke in the microwave.

  7. Leftovers...the bane of my existence. I suppose if I ran out of them, I could have scrambled eggs with salsa.

  8. Cheese, crackers, and an apple. And wine.

  9. Granola, yoghurt, sometimes Cheerios, and if I'm feeling wild, and omelet. I'd rather have a decent lunch and pick at dinner. I'm over it by then.

  10. I love cooking, I just don't like cleaning up afterwards. Isn't that what children are for, washing dishes and cleaning up cooking messes?

    1. Spoken like a true battle-hardened veteran! Mine do clean-up also, but I am still sick of cooking. At least that late in the day...

  11. Hah, I feel like a gourmet foodie for saying "smoothies"! But I'm currently pregnant and don't have a ton of choice... Also a big fan of Dairy Queen's chicken strip basket. It got me through the first trimester.
    My mom was the cook for decades before she finally stopped. Now, when asked, she says, "Cooking? I don't cook. Nasty habit."

  13. Granola and yogurt.
    Bread and butter.
    Cheese and crackers.
    Cheese and grapes.
    Cereal with milk.
    Toasted cheese on multi-grain bread. (My healthy version of grilled cheese, which is one of my favorite sandwiches.)

  14. I gave up regular cooking a while a go. My husband and daughter are perfectly able to find food in the cupboards and fridge. The benefit of this is that when I do make a meal, they're very appreciative. Cheese, crackers, and wine. Popcorn. Salsa and chips.

  15. Pancakes! Blueberry pancakes, drowned in maple syrup. That was what was for dinner last night. Because my inner 5 year old thought it was a good idea.

  16. Whatever leftovers are handy, or takeout. I am SO sick of cooking for picky eaters, and perpetually behind on the dishes. Cal goon, take me away!

  17. Frozen waffles, almond butter and jelly. And a cup of tea.

  18. Cheese and wine would make me very happy.
    My husband took over most of the dinner preparations when he retired. He's now sick of doing it every single day but I started working and he's stuck. Ha!
