I see all of you out there and I feel your pain…
No, I’m not talking about physical pain, I’m referring to the shame, disgust, and anger that you feel when you look in the mirror…because you’ve been making some really terrible decisions when it comes to cooking during the quarantine…
And so have I!
Hey, what can you do, right?
It gets pretty old trying to tantalize your tastebuds day in and day out when restaurants aren’t open. Do you want to know how many times I’ve had peanut butter and jelly for dinner in the last year? It’s a sad, sad state of affairs, trust me.
Take a look at these rock bottom quarantine meals and let us know if they stack up to what you’ve been doing in the kitchen.
1. You do you.
Might take a while to eat, though…
I'm sick of cooking…tonight's dinner is a raw potato

2. All up from here.
Not the worst thing I’ve ever heard.
I ate a cinnamon roll and 4 mozzarella sticks for dinner last night. It’s a new low, but once you hit rock bottom, it’s all up from here!

3. What kind of dressing, though…
You need to fill us in!
Man I’m tired of cooking.
I’m bout to just drink this bottle of salad dressing and get in bed ☹️

4. Official hit rock bottom.
We wish you luck in the future…
How’s quarantine going, you ask? Well, I made myself a PB&J and grabbed a whole bottle of wine for dinner, so I’d say I’m hitting rock bottom ??

5. Not quite, but almost…
You might need some help.
I ate canned peaches for dinner at 9pm. Is this rock bottom?

6. Sounds like a real snoozer.
Liven it up a little bit!
I'm making buttered noodles, roasted chicken breast, and broccoli for dinner. I'm bored with a meal I haven't even started cooking yet.

7. That does not sound good.
I’m just being honest with you.
what’s the saddest quarantine meal you’ve had so far? mine is doritos nachos

8. You need to go to the store NOW.
Don’t wait until tomorrow.
Saddest quarantine meal yet: tuna on top of croutons (I’m going to the grocery store tomorrow).

9. Do what you gotta do.
We’re living in desperate times.
“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.

10. Phoning it in.
Is it really punk, though?
Phoning it in for dinner today, meaning I'm making potato wedges and that's fucking punk

11. Apologize to the food lords.
They might not be able to forgive this one.
just ate my saddest quarantine meal yet: box rigatoni with jarred pasta sauce and enough parmesan cheese that the bowl smelled questionable. i’m sorry to the food lords on that one
