small h Posted April 22, 2020 Share Posted April 22, 2020 Robert Sietsema on Eater: It’s amazing how the current epidemic has so quickly reduced our expectations for food. I’ve been cooking for myself for the last month, and even though I’m a good cook, what I’ve been eating lately almost never matches even the most casual restaurant meals I once ate every day. Do you: (a) Disgree (b) Strongly disagree (c ) Want to know where he had been eating Disagree. In the before-times, I cooked for myself frequently, probably five nights a week, usually one multi-item meal (like fish, spinach and potato) for every three single-bowl meals (like spaghetti or stir fry). These were all pretty much as good as their casual restaurant equivalents, with the exception of fried rice, because I suck at it. Now I make a lot more multi-item meals, because I have a lot more time at home, what with the not needing to go out for work and all. This has made me feel like making more labor-intensive and ambitious things, and to take more care with my cooking, generally. Quote Link to post Share on other sites
