Most single guys I've known under, say, 30 years of age honestly can't cook. They were never taught and/or never took it upon themselves to learn their way around the kitchen. If it can't be microwaved or quickly warmed in a toaster oven it simply doesn't exist in their world. If you put a gun to their heads and said, "Make a meal not containing Ramen noodles ", they'd end up with their brains splattered on the wall. If a naked Kate Upton said "Put down the PS4 controller and cook me a meal and you can have me", they'd still be fapping to Sports Illustrated after a marathon of GTA.
|Yup. She'd have to kill you.|
Sadly, some do attempt to cook and just end up burning water.
Guys, seriously, cooking isn't as hard as you think. I'm self-taught. Have I made mistakes that were inedible? Of course. Baby steps, young Padawans. You're gonna stumble along the way but really, you can do this. If I can do it, anyone can.
|Pay attention, dude. Seriously.|
But before we walk, we gotta crawl, right? This is a tasty and supremely simple meal that takes very little effort. Master this, and you have a foundation to proudly build upon.
(NOTE: I, um, don't exactly use standard recipe formats. Can I read and follow a recipe? Sure. I'm not an idiot. However, I do better when I just wing it. After all, I'm your Virtual Wingman, right? )
|Simple kielbasa slices.|
|I tend to cut mine diagonally, only because it looks cooler on the plate.|
|This is a fresh broccoli crown. Yes, that's a vegetable. It won't hurt you.|
|Cut the florets off and toss the stalks.|
|Mrs Dash is your friend.|
|The best 89 cents you'll spend all week. The rest can go in your vodka & tonic.|
