I am not one of those amazing people that has a natural bent towards cooking. I like take-out and pizza and having other people do the cooking. In a perfect world, my kitchen would be enchanted, just like the one in Beauty and the Beast, except without that weird dark, damp castle feeling, and I’d be serenaded by a sassy candelabra and served four course meals every evening. (In a perfect world, my jeans would also never be too tight after eating said four course meal, but that’s neither here nor there.)
Alas, not only is my stove standard issue and not, you know, magical, but frequent take-out is simply not in the cards for this mom of 3. Aside from the fact that it’s super not healthy and the local Chinese restaurant price gouges everything (are you sure house lo-mein is supposed to cost so much?), two of my daughters have extensive food allergies. At the height of our food allergies, the looks on servers faces when I said “Yeah, so we can’t order anything with dairy, egg, soy, wheat, peanuts, tree nuts, sesame, or mustard” was comical.
I mean, not that I laughed.
And so I cook. From scratch, for the most part. While my husband can open a cupboard and the refrigerator and go “Yeah, so we have some of this, some of that, I’ll throw this all together and it will be amazing,” the thought of cooking like that gives me anxiety.
I need a recipe. And all of the ingredients. And a preheated oven. And no one asking me to help with homework. I might as well be a brain surgeon, is what I’m saying. That’s how hard I have to concentrate.
“I need 40 ccs of extra virgin olive oil, stat!” but, you know, no one answers?
I’m all for making potentially stressful moments easier, and that’s where the Intel 2 in 1 comes into play. It’s a laptop, but it’s also a tablet. A tabtop. A laplet. Nah, never mind.
It’s small and portable and perfect for www surfing on the couch or at the kitchen table while I help with homework, and it folds back into a tidy tablet, which is perfect for pulling up my favorite recipes while I listen to music and make dinner. I can scroll up and down by dragging a finger across the screen, and it keeps everything I need right where I need it. I’ll never turn away singing teapots, but this is a pretty good alternative. ;)
