Cooking was one of the most exciting activities for many people to get through the day when the pandemic began. That enthusiasm seems to have taken a sharp dip as we continue to stay at home. What started off with baking sourdough bread and whipping Dalgona coffee has now reached a point where people are just eating fries for dinner. There are days where entering the kitchen seems like the most daunting task of the day. We’ve compiled tweets from people are sick of cooking in the pandemic.
Tonight's dinner is a microwave meal for 1 and a glass of gin.
Yes I can cook. I just don't want to.

I love cooking, but after 10 months of making my meals at home, I am done. I think I have a homeoffice/lockdown cooking burnout: I can only do frozen TV dinners, leftovers and restaurant deliveries now

I ate a cinnamon roll and 4 mozzarella sticks for dinner last night. It’s a new low, but once you hit rock bottom, it’s all up from here!

My cooking skills are so basic that when my kid had to fill out a little Mother’s Day questionnaire that asked what his favourite food is that I cook, he replied “she is good at roasting bagels.” When I laughed, he was like, “you also make good instant oatmeal.”

The worst part about meal prepping is putting all the food you just made away and not eating any of it
