Chained To the Kitchen Range

Mary Berry was piping stiffened egg white onto a baking tray. The end product was going to be an enormous, sticky confection of meringue and berries. "I've made this many times, " she said, "And I love every minute of it." And I thought, "Hmmm..."

I don't hate cooking. Sometimes I think its quite good fun. But other times I get weary of the slog of having to put food on the table several times a day. Right now- or last night to be more precise- I was thinking, "I've cooked this shit, do I really have to eat it as well? Hasn't it wasted enough of my time?"
