Why College Students Don't Make Good Cooks

(Voice over)Previously on BetterJeans:  Marcy reviewed her Valentine's Day with coworkers, which included a home cooked meal. This promted her younger coworkers to lament their lack of talent in the kitchen. 

[SCENE] Interior, bank setting, day

A copy of the Lobster Potpie recipe sits on a desk.

College Student: See, this is exactly why I can't cook.  First of all, I don't even know what Puff Pastry is.  Second, I've never heard of thigh-m (thyme) and I don't own a pastry brush. 

Marcy:  Actually, the Puff Pastry is the easy part because you can by it already made in the freezer aisle.  Also, it's pronounced time (thyme) and the reason you can't cook is that you have to know to improvise.  I couldn't find a pastry brush either but my two foot basting brush from the grill works wonders. 

College Student:  See, my real problem is that I just don't have time to cook. 

Marcy:  Oh, see what you did there?  You don't have thyme, but seriously you can find it pretty easily in the spice aisle.

Loved it! Thyme! Ha ha. I too used to not care much for cooking, but now, I'd MUCH rather whip out some thyme, a pastry brush and a pot pie recipe than head out for takeaway!

I wish my healthy cooking and all my recent exercise translated into Better Jeans, however.
