Hey, cooking at home doesn't have to be work. With all the great cookiing shows, books, sites, it doesn't take any special talent to make great, tasty, novel meals -- the challenge can actually be fun and a pleasant surprise with a totally different meal. The ingredients are far cheaper than a meal at a restarunt, and put on a great movie or music, invite a couple of friends over and it's more of a party. But most are too lazy to try new things. When my kids lived at home, they never complained about eating at home most of the time.
