When it comes to adulting, I have most of it down: I pay my bills, I meet my deadlines, and I can navigate insurance and health care. I even own some stock. But when it comes to the kitchen, I fail. Sure, I can follow a recipe, but meal planning – choosing recipes, buying ingredients, actually cooking and using them before they go bad – isn’t really something I’ve figured out how to do consistently. I think I’ve grocery shopped three or four times in 2017 so far. I’m always impressed by people who are good at – and enjoy – cooking, and especially people who can look in the fridge and make a meal from what they have. Those handful of times I went shopping and didn’t meal plan? Half of the food went bad because I would open the fridge, look in, go “I have nothing to eat,” and close the fridge.
