Hymn To Him

Male Kitchen Efficiency Tip: For today's lunch of leftover pulled pork and barbecue sauce (yet another Premium T. triumph), I left the pork in its container and spooned barbecue sauce onto it. I then microwaved the pork -- still in its original container -- and ate it using the same spoon used for the barbecue sauce. Satisfaction Factor: High (Premium T. made it, after all). Hassle factor: Very Low. Number of dishes to do: Two, counting the spoon.

Alternate approach: Place pork and sauce into separate dishes suitable for presentation. Microwave both and put them on a table fully set for one, with separate serving utensils for each. Add pork to plate, top with sauce. Satisfaction Factor: Moderated to High (downgraded some because of the number of dirty dishes). Hassle Factor: Moderate to High. Number of dishes to do: Nine, counting utensils.

Bonus points: Since I just got back from the gym and am going to shower anyway, there's no real need to waste a napkin...

Premium T. applauds your efficiency, but don't think we're going to start eating dinner hunched over the frying pan at the stove, sharing one large spoon....

I would never think that about dinner. Lunch, though...
