854: Learning to Cook
|Learning to Cook|
Title text: And yet I never stop thinking, 'sure, these ingredients cost more than a restaurant meal, but think how many meals I'll get out of them! Especially since each one will have leftovers!'
This comic shows the plight of a person who occasionally motivates himself to cook. After buying ingredients and cooking them (whether or not it tasted good), he puts the leftovers in the fridge. Hours later, he starts ordering pizza again. As they go bad, he first throws away the leftovers and later the unused ingredients. After some months he is motivated again to cook more and the loop repeats.
The name of the strip indicates that a lesson can be learned here.
The title text describes that buying ingredients for a single meal might be more expensive than eating at a restaurant, but it would be compensated if there are enough leftovers to eat again from it or cook several meals. Of course, this idea is vitiated if he gives up cooking after a single try and throws away all remaining food.

- I should cook more! -> Buy ingredients -> Put some in a pan -> Cook -> Does it taste good? -> (arrows marked "Kinda" and "No" both lead to) Put leftovers in fridge -> (hours pass) -> Order pizza -> (days pass) -> Throw away leftovers -> (weeks pass) -> Throw away remaining ingredients as they go bad -> (months pass) -> (arrow leads back to beginning)
