I made an old fashioned dinner last night. You know – the kind that takes and hour and a half to make, and makes lots of dishes.
We had meatloaf, mashed potatoes and gravy, and green beans. Everything made from scratch. It was delicious, don’t get me wrong. But if I had to cook like this every night – well, I wouldn’t. Not anymore.
That is so far removed from the way I cook now. I bet a lot of people still think that making a great dinner still has to be a big ordeal. No wonder people rely on packaged stuff so much.
Oddly enough, my daughter didn’t seem real thrilled with it. She prefers the lighter, healthier fare that we normally eat.
I guess I won’t feel pressured to make this meal again for a long time…
