Takeout Junkie

I am a serious takeout junkie... I used to spend a lot of time cooking long, elaborate dishes like risotto (well, I do need to work out my arms), chicken stock from scratch, cupcakes, etc. etc. (Okay, maybe cupcakes are not long and elaborate, but frankly following the recipe from the Magnolia Bakery cookbook was exhausting!!!)

Well, since I lack a dishwasher, doing all that freaking cleaning up and scrubbing just got annoying! So for the last 9 months, the nearest I have gone to my stove is to boil water. Oh and I cooked an egg once, too.

So, if you look inside my refrigerator you will see all sorts of takeout containers, some of which (scarily enough) will be a month old.

Do you think it would be interesting to see a photo of fridge at various times during the month?

Okay, maybe not.. maybe this is falling into the too-much-information ("TMI") category.


We've taken to marking all the containers with a grease pen, so at least I will know the rice I'm eating is a week old (hmm, does anyone know what the long-term health consequences of eating old rice are??)..

BTW, if you have any suggestions for good places to order from in the East Village, please share!! Thanks. (I get so tired of ordering from the same places!)
