What's your least favorite cooking chore?

sophia519 | Jan 21, 2016 10:24 AM

I really enjoy cooking and most of the chores surrounding the planning, cooking and eating of meals. However, there are a few chores I actively dislike, for not entirely rational reasons.

For me, I am easily annoyed chopping herbs (mostly cilantro and parsley). Probably the result of poor technique, this chore takes me longer to do than it should therefore I get annoyed doing it.

Second: Deveining shrimp. Grosses me out and adds too much time.

What are yours?
