Sometimes I try to cook. It goes in phases, really. One week I'll be little miss domesticity, throwing things in a crock pot and preparing full meals. The next, I'll head over to my beloved Trader Joe's and buy up all of their frozen orange chicken.
My problem with cooking is that it never ends up tasting as delicious as I imagined it would be. I pour over food blogs and choose a recipe based on whatever picture looks the most delicious. Then, I trek to the grocery store and wander the aisles, muttering under my breath..."pickled ginger? who uses pickled ginger?" I spend my evening slaving in the kitchen, only to take a bite and think...meh.
Tonight, however. I have decided to make a pizza. And by make I mean combine pre-made ingredients from Trader Joe's. An excellent compromise, if I do say so myself.
If any of you readers are Trader Joe's fans, please let me know your recommendations for easy meals to reheat/combine...er, cook.
