    Definitely washing up ^_^ To be fair it does limit my spending on 'ambitious' recipes which would be a pain in the ass to clear up to a 'once in a while' thing rather than impoverishing me like it would if I could be arsed to do it every night

    Really, cooking is so time consuming, takes over an hour out of my day every day to prep and cook meals, which are nothing but scraps in five to eight minutes, at least I think that's the case, never really timed myself eating :rolleyes: .
