The Laws of Diminishing (Culinary) Returns

CindyJ | Oct 26, 2009 07:57 AM

Over and over again, I prove to myself that more time spent in the planning and preparation of a meal does not necessarily make for a more delicious, more enjoyable, more exquisite meal.

I spent part of Friday and all day Saturday shopping for and preparing a meal for company. Oh, the meal was good -- but definitely NOT worth the time and effort I put into it.

Has anyone else noticed this "diminishing returns" phenomenon?
