The COVID-19 pandemic forced most of us to stay home and cook a lot more of our own meals this year. Many people are reporting feeling pretty burned out when it comes to cooking these days.
I’m sick of cooking 🙄 I just told my 5 yr old to cook for himself .

I am 100% over cooking dinner. I can’t wait to go out to eat again and I plan on making every server uncomfortable with my gratitude

If only I got tired of eating as much as I get tired of cooking.

It's almost dinnertime again. I'm sick of cooking for myself and I'm also sick of takeout and actually the only thing that sounds good is for a freshly laundered man to cook me scallops with a side of risotto and greens and then sit across from me and ask me how I'm doing.

I’ve reached the “I’m tired of cooking, tired of ordering out, why is eating necessary?” stage of quarantine.

I'm grateful for employment and the ability to take care of myself AND I'm fu*king tired of cooking.
How's that for balance??

I’m tired of cooking...
I wanna hear “can I start you off with some appetizers or drinks?”

Isolation Journal Day 35:
Got tired of cooking, so I had Phil make me a bowl of popcorn for dinner. But I put butter on it: that’s dairy... And I washed it down with a glass of wine (fruit).
So I almost hit all the major food groups.

I'm not burned out from cooking but I'm burned out from recipe searching. If anyone has cookbook recommendations that you've actually made a lot of things out of, please send my way!

I’m so sick of cooking and feeding people. Is thinking of setting the kitchen on fire considered irrational?
— Mama Llama (@justamom819) April 21, 2020
I’m so sick of cooking every single day. The day I can afford a personal chef is the day I never walk into a kitchen again.
— babygirl👑 (@princesss_kriss) December 3, 2020
I have been really, extremely burned out on all cooking the last few weeks. Like anything that involves more planning than spaghetti is out.

I’m so sick of cooking and I’m so sick of takeout and I’m sick of eating and I wish that humans didn’t require so much goddamn food

I am SOOOO over cooking my own food. Can we please go back to when bored horny linecooks made non stop appetizer buffets for attention and Jack Daniels?
— Phil Eagle (@phileagle_) April 8, 2020
I have reached dinner cooking burnout. I just haven’t cooked anything this evening. Kids will be hungry soon. Can’t do it, can’t cook. No idea what to make. I can’t make myself care about dinner anymore!
— Bionic Laura (@bioniclaura) December 9, 2020
I’m so burned out on cooking, I don’t even know what groceries to buy anymore
— Hannah Spaar 📰🗞 (@HannahSpaar) December 6, 2020
I’m so deathly tired of cooking meals. Just really, really over it. I hate cooking now and I used to like it. And every time I get asked “What’s for dinner?” I get a little murdery.
— J (@HeSlimedMeRay) June 24, 2020
I am running out of cooking ideas. I’ve done meal prep for 17yrs and even I’m running out of ideas on what to make. I am burned out from all the grocery trips. When winter comes everyone in the house will dislike me because all I will want is soup. #pandemiclife
