I LOVE food but don't eat often and rarely cook anymore. I've never been married and don't have kids, so it's just not worth the effort most of the time. I hate seeing food go to waste, and a lot of times the fresh fruits and vegetables and bread I buy end up in the trash after turning bad, so I've basically quit grocery shopping except for necessities (for me, that means canned goods and microwaveable stuff; I know, not the healthiest). Cooking an actual meal is great on occasion, until the fourth day of leftovers (the first three days are usually great! But even good food gets tiresome if eaten repeatedly for days...). Sorry if it sounds like I'm whining; I'm not. Just stating facts. Co-workers and neighbors who always seem to cook too much keep me supplied with their leftovers, which is fantastic for me (I just heat them up when I get hungry), but I've really started missing cooking. So here I am. I'm ready to get motivated about gardening, traveling, and cooking again! They all go hand in hand, in my opinion.
