Cooking vs. baking

I will bake all day long.  But I really, truly hate to cook.

Mostly because everything you need to cook (like the baked potato soup I made yesterday) starts with sauteeing onions in a pan and/or boiling them and/or letting them cook for HOURS in a crockpot.

This in turn makes the whole house smell like B.O.

And gets so deep into your clothes (and all of the coats hanging by the door) that when you go out somewhere, you smell like B.O.

Everyone looks at you out of the corner of their eye and you can tell they’re wondering how exactly you’re handling your new stay at home mom role, since – based on the smell alone – it doesn’t seem to be going so well.
