Arlo is the “hand grenade in the kitchen” type.

No just wash the dirty ones for Him
That’s why I refuse to cook at home if I can avoid it!
I looked it up. All this time, I thought ratatouille was only an animated movie about rats.But I now have learned that Ratatouille niçoise is a French dish featuring assorted vegetables!
I am with Janis. How can you cook in a cluttered kitchen? I would hate for anyone to leave my kitchen in such a state in the name of “cooking”!
BTW, I am a middle-aged man – just to forestall any misogynistic comments.
Time to visit “W”
If I’m making something complicated, I wash things as I go along.
Mark Twain once said that French cooking was an elegant way of preparing garbage.
She has a point.
Yeah – having been a bachelor – - I’d say that “one pot” meals are a lot more of the course than getting every utensil in the kitchen dirty
I have a few recipes, that when done right by the instruction, seem to use every pan in the house. Chicken Tetrazzini was he first of those recipes I tried. The meal was a success, even the kids loved it. Others, like my Marsala Chicken are real simple, takes one pan for the meal, sides do not count.(only 1 more pan for steamed asparagus). I spoil my wife, by being the cook(easy when you work at home).
My wife cooks on the weekends, I spend Monday morning cleaning up.
Whoever cooks at our place has to wash whatever doesn’t fit into the dishwasher, after the not cooking ones filled it with the glass-, dinner- and silverware.
I usually reuse pans and bowles while preparing and time my cooking so I can finish that while something simmers or is in the oven.
I leave them dirty for monday morning when the cleaner comes
1. I won’t eat anything that begins with “rat,” even if it is actually all vegetables. Bad karma.
2. As I have before, why cook? God made restaurants for a reason.
By the way, I thought this strip seemed familiar. I just checked. It’s a nugget from the gold mine of 2019.
If a rat can do it how hard could it be?
It’s a guy thing!
The last family on the block without a dishwasher.
Good cooks also clean up while they’re cooking…..
“Yes, six more please.”
(well, she DID ask)
I don’t recall anything in ratatouille that requires whisking . . . .
Maybe a rat chef to cook it right…
Sarcasm at its best. Go, Janis!
I would not clean up after a cook like Arlo. He can clean up his own mess.
That’s what my dad said when I tried to cook in his kitchen. And to make matters worse, nobody except me liked what I made!
My brother used to cook this way at the family cabin, and the kids dreaded having dish duty when he cooked; all dishes had to be done by hand at our cabin.
Since I hate zucchini, when my mom made it, we called it “rata-phooey”…
Ratatouille? Why are you beating something then? All you need is a good knife, a cutting board, olive oil, herbs, a 4, 3, 2, 1, 1 (four tomatoes, three courgettes, 2 aubergines, 1 red pepper, one onion) salt, pepper, and a good cooking pot. What the heck are you doing, Arlo? Heretic! (Yes, I am Southern French, where ratatouille was born).
A rerun from July 2,2019. I enjoyed it both times, at least.
