There’s really no use in beating around the bush: a lot of us are sick and tired of cooking and we’ve been getting desperate when it comes to our culinary styles during the pandemic and the quarantine.
So that means there have been millions and millions of folks worldwide who have basically hit rock bottom when it comes to cooking.
And can you really blame them?
It gets really old not being able to eat out at a restaurant. And then you open your barely-stocked cupboards and you find yourself staring into the abyss. And THEN you just get desperate and throw together any old thing that will satisfy your hunger for a few minutes…it’s a vicious cycle.
Are you ready to read about some rock bottom meals that folks have admitted to? Let’s take a look.
1. Almost hit all the major food groups.
Isolation Journal Day 35:
Got tired of cooking, so I had Phil make me a bowl of popcorn for dinner. But I put butter on it: that’s dairy… And I washed it down with a glass of wine (fruit).
So I almost hit all the major food groups.

2. Perfectly acceptable.
Just keep telling yourself that…
I'm eating reheated pizza for breakfast because that is perfectly acceptable to do on a Saturday morning or any day of the week you are in lockdown.

3. This is intense.
I salute you, sir!
What's the saddest quarantine meal y'all have made so far? Mine is probably the 8oz ball of mozzarella I just kinda ripped up, wrapped in a tortilla and ate in bed while I drank a single can of Bud heavy.

4. Fending for ourselves.
Doesn’t sound delicious, not gonna lie.
“Oh shoot you never had lunch, just melt some butter on your popcorn.” Everyone is fending for themselves on this 3,000th day of March.

5. Don’t regret it all the way.
But at least recognize the problem.
what’s been your saddest quarantine meal? last night I ate 37 pizza rolls drenched in cholula and 4 glasses of v8 juice and I only kind of regret it

6. This sounds absolutely disgusting.
But you’re living your own life. That’s what’s important.
What’s everyone’s sad quarantine meal?
Mine’s a sandwich. Plain white bread. Cheap ham and turkey. Shredded cheese. Microwaved.
Will throw in chips if I’m feeling fancy.

7. We need to talk.
Stale Pringles? This is sad…
Tell me your worst quarantine meal thus far. Today I had half a tube of stale pringles and washed it down with sweet tea.
