McDonalds, McDonalds, Kentucky Fried Chicken, and a Pizza Hut.

I've just seen the Dolmio advert, the one with the two old guys pretending to be kids so that they can get hold of the new kids microwave in the bag Dolmio pasta [I know that other ones have been around for a while]. Can you believe it? Pasta is one of the easiest things to cook, but soon there will be people who will laugh at you when you suggest boiling pasta. I see TV programmes sometimes where they have 'hopeless cooks' who don't even know how to boil an egg, and beans on toast is their culinary expertise.

I really enjoy cooking, and yes I do sometimes cheat and get takeaway or a microwave meal, but at least I know how to cook. Surely it's better when all the ingredients are fresh, and not rehydrated, powdered, mechanically recovered, factory sealed packets of 'nuitrition'?

End of rant.

I probably shouldnt admit to this, but I've burnt pasta, both in a saucepan and in the microwave...
