If you’re anything like us, you enjoy all of the conveniences of eating out at restaurants — no shopping, a variety of dining options, and not having to wash a single dish after you’re finished. Eating out is one of our favorite things to do, but it is expensive, and the quality of service, ingredients, and atmosphere vary dramatically from restaurant-to-restaurant and from night-to-night at the same establishment. Simply picking where to eat can be just as frustrating as figuring out what to make at home.
We’re busy, and after long hours at work, feeding ourselves and our families can feel like a burden. But we don’t want it to be a burden. We want the stress surrounding mealtimes to go away. We want eating at home to be as convenient as eating in a restaurant. We want to sit down, enjoy a delicious dinner, and know exactly what we’re eating and whether we’re providing our bodies with proper nutrition. We also want to enjoy the company of our friends, families, and even our own thoughts in the comfort of our homes.
We want to eat something for lunch other than reheated leftovers. We want to be able to chop onions without bleeding. We want to save our money to buy the best quality kitchen gadgets, appliances, and equipment we actually use, and stop wasting our money on items and features we don’t. We don’t want food to rot in our refrigerator’s crisper. We want to get the best cuts of meat from the butcher. And, we want to feel like celebrity chefs when we put food on the table.
Most of all, we want the process to be as painless as possible.
We want these things, and we have accepted the quest to make them happen: SimpliFried is a blog about ending mealtime stress. If your nerves are fried, we’ll be your simple, delicious, and nutritious cooking guide.
