I like cooking but what I cook depends on time and energy.
I don't understand though why so many folks say they don't when they obviously do. If you like your eggs raw and your steak Diane that's fair enough but even boiling an egg, frying some bacon or flipping a steak is cooking.
Its almost like some folks are ashamed . come out of the closet and be proud - You can cook
I think some people have very basic reasons for identifying themselves as "people who don't cook" that keep them from acknowledging that grilling a steak or frying an egg is indeed "cooking".

I used to cook alot more till I found this awesome little Filipino place that charges $7.50 for 3 mini-entrees and some white rice. Lasts me 3 meals if I extend the white rice by microwaving with 2-3 eggs.
What's on the menu:
Chicken coconut stew
Ham hocks cooked in vinegar and soy sauce with banana blossoms
Pork belly adobo (vinegar, soysauce, garlic)
Pork heart, onions, green pepper in a sour vinegar sauce
Pork stomach stewed in pork blood and vinegar
Beef stewed in tomatoe sauce
Goat stewed with olives, potatoes, carrot and tomatoe sauce
Ok so the soysauce and rice isn't 100% compliant but everything else is
Thanks for all the feedback, it is great to meet with other like minded individuals.
