I’ve been watching TV show lately called worst cooks in America. It’s a really good show and it’s pretty funny. I mean, what funnier than watching people who screw up macaroni and cheese?
The premise of the show is that they take a bunch of really awful cooks and teach them how to cook professionally. It’s fun to watch and I do learn things from it, but considering all of these people mostly just want to learn to cook for themselves and their children, why do they need to learn how to make pizza dough from scratch or pull their own Asian noodles? It’s not practical.
Plus it makes me feel like a really bad cook because I can’t do those things.
Honestly, I feel like they should have more shows that don’t involve cooking things from scratch. Because really, who has time to cook anything from scratch? Just because I sometimes (often) buy chopped vegetables, does that make me one of the worst cooks in America?
