The Cursing Gourmet Tip of the Day:
Clean as you go.
Omgosh I’m TERRIBLE at cleaning as I go! I’ll do great 3 days in a row, then it’ll all go to shit and there will be days’ worth of dishes/etc. piled up in the sink because I still haven’t unloaded the dishwasher after running it a couple days ago.
And pots and pans… I’m forever trying to clean them asap, but far too often, once the food coma sets in, my brain pretends they don’t exist.
But the next morning? Boy do they exist! And they’re crusty AF, so they take 3X as long to clean than if I’d just cleaned them up the night before.
So I am trying REALLY HARD to be better at cleaning as I go. Because I’m only punishing myself by NOT doing so. And as someone who hates cooking (and all things related), I’m constantly working to minimize EVERY aspect of the time-consuming process that is feeding yourself well every day.
P.S. Cleaning as I go is so much easier with Grandma here entertaining Izzy 😊
