I can't stand staring at food cooking. it takes forever it seems. It shouldn't take so long. You end up just sitting around doing nothing meanwhile you're hungry and you got things to do, it's maddening!

There's always chores to do in the kitchen....well for me at least. Why not look at the expiration dates on everything?

I usually just cook something else.

I tend to have my entree set out so I can work on my dessert while it's finishing.

I also find the creativity is at it's best at that time. For me anyway

Put some music on, grab a beer and have a dance around the kitchen...

Then you have forgotten all about the food in the oven and it's burnt to buggery...

Then you end up just having a sandwich.....

If the fod preparation takes too long.. i usually make some exotic drink, or make some sauce combination for the meal.

If we are looking at 1hr+ wait.. then i get on internet..

I eat other foods until it's done. Yeah, I'm a fatty.

Stir, so it doesn't burn.

I usually eat out with a beautiful woman and we discuss the dumbass threads we read on ATS until the waiter brings us our drinks. A Tequila sour for the lady and a martini for me....shaken not stirred por favor.

Fire safety cooking rule #1: Never leave food cooking on or in the stove unattended. (Don't make me post statistics now.)

My dinner is usually raw. Problem solved there.
Lunch? someone else cooks it.
Breakfast....done in under ten minutes.

Don't cook meals that take that long??? I hate to cook, so I can everything. All I have to do is heat it up.

I usually put on some youtube vids, acoustic music and loud so my wife can hear it in the kitchen and enjoy with me. If I am cooking I will try to talk my wife into a bedroom excursion while the oven is preheating.

It takes half an hour for the average dinner to "cook" but most won't cook unattended. You have to set the table, set out the drinks, make a salad, prepare the garnish for the vegetables, and tend to the entree that is usually frying on the stove top or needs to be monitored on the BBQ. Plus the cats expect to be entertained with the red laser light. Plus you have to be sure that the steamed vegetables (30 minutes) get done at roughly the same time as the fried crab cakes (15 minutes). Even if something is baking in the oven that half hour goes by very quickly. Dinner is at 8:00. Success is measured if the food is going on the table at the same time the grandfather clock is chiming out the hour. It's a game. I never am bored staring at the food. There's too much to do!

Then I spend an hour eating it and sharing a bottle of wine with my honey.
