Perhaps I should clarify. I don't cook because I DON"T LIKE TO COOK.
A lot of my conversations recently have gone like this.
Me: I don't cook
Concerned friend: I should loan you this great cookbook I have.
Me: I don't cook.
Concerned friend: You should try this recipe for ________that I have.
People people people, there is a difference between can't and don't. I can cook. I make spaghetti sauce from scratch, I make apple pie from scratch (okay not the crust but I used to do that too), and I'm great at breakfast foods (weird because I almost never eat them). I just don't like to cook. It's work and I am LAZY. Then I have to clean up, that's even more work and did I mention I'm lazy?
Thank you for your concern but we're not going to starve to death if I don't cook. Dave is an amazing cook and likes doing it. I appreciate the offer of your great cook book or recipe but why don't you cook something and I'd be happy to be your taster.
