I do cook but I mostly do a lot of preparing. In other words, I don't stand there with a cookbook and follow recipes. I mostly just whip up stuff that takes about as much effort as microwaving. Examples:
1. The easy stuff I do at work
Microwave a sweet potato.
Pour a can of tuna or salmon over the potato.
Pour some salsa or mustard on top and eat up.
2. The hard stuff I do at home
Throw some salmon or lamb steaks in a pan.
Coat with a few spoonfuls of mustard.
Put in the oven and turn on the heat.
Go back to surfing the web on my computer for a while.
Steam some veggies and potatoes in the microwave.
When the meat's done, eat with a side of butter.
