When ordering out, all you need to do is to read the menu and others will take care of filling up your belly. There are a gazillion of books, articles, videos around to help you start cooking.You don’t need to start preparing a soufle or god knows what tricky food.When we want to eat a certain type of broth for instance, all we do is take out the box/bag and we’re set for the day. Had my share of ‘disasters’ in the kitchen and have the amazing talent to ALWAYS cut my fingers (even with the bread knife, if you can imagine my clumsiness).So I agree that cooking for someone who lacks experience is pretty difficult.
We’re shocked every time we do eat out at how much food we’re being served.
From a health standpoint and also looking at the budget, eating out can pose some issues, as well as solving some problems.
Many families have developed the habit of going to a fast-food joint or a regular restaurant instead of cooking at home, citing the lack of time, the need to entertain themselves some more, the small prices etc.
You just order a burger or a soup and in few minutes or half an hour you’re being fed.
On the other hand though, cooking at home (and from scratch, not heating some processed meals) doesn’t have to take such a long time either.
