Yes, you can cook. You have time. And energy. And talent. Really.

have to. Photo from Ruhlman's article.
Honestly, this is going to be a very short post because I'm mostly pimping someone else's post: Michael Ruhlman's amazing America: Too Stupid To Cook. A summary: no, we aren't, and here's a REALLY GREAT EASY RECIPE FOR ROAST CHICKEN.

Yeah, I was a little yelly there, but it's because it is a perfect recipe for everyone who is too busy to cook. Roast chicken is cheap (6 bucks) and fast (one hour) and you can make baked potatoes at the exact same time: wash the potatoes, coat in oil and salt, and put in the oven with the chicken. No foil, no nothing, just put them on the oven rack, and take them out when you take the chicken out. That's it. Microwave some frozen peas while you're at it and you've got a great meal.

 Indeed, anyone can cook.
