No one in this household cooks. This is not usually a problem. We can, of course, boil water for pasta and pick up veggie salads at Lifethyme, the organic store down the street. We can order in from a variety of places. The only time we feel a bit at loose ends is when we have a dinner party.
We solved the problem recently by inviting people over for cereal. Who doesn’t like cereal? Frankly, who wouldn’t rather have cereal for dinner than a big heavy roast? Anyway, we bought several brands of cereal–from Cap’n Crunch to crunchy granola–plus assorted fruits, nuts and yogurts, and a couple of different types of juice to drink.
Then we realized that we had only two bowls that weren’t cracked in half because Mouse (see above) likes to sit in them after he drinks the leftover milk. So we bought a set of six bowls.
It would have been cheaper to take everyone to a restaurant.
