15 and 30 minute meals are a joke! let me tell you why and if you cook you will understand. PREP TIME! choppin' all your veggies and marinating your meats can sometimes take you 15 to 30 minutes alone. when we watch all the cooking shows on tv.... all the prep work is done. yeah....that's right, sittin' in those little containers and bowls on the counter is all the grunt work of cooking! if when i started cookin' and the prep work was sittin' in bowls. i would then be able to do 15 and 30 minute meals. don't get it twisted.... i really enjoy cooking and tryin' new things in the kitchen. but, it hit me last night when i was cooking. i thought i would whip something together real quick for wifey and me. by the time i got done with the prep......30 minutes had gone by and i hadn't put heat on anything! hmm...maybe i can get wifey to do all my prep work?
