My Favorite Television Show
Posted: November 20, 2015
My favorite television show has been Gotham, which is on Monday night at 7pm on Fox. The show is a pre-Batman-type story that is sometimes ridiculous, but fairly entertaining. However, my new favorite television show is "Master Chef - Junior", which is also on Fox on Friday night at 7pm.
As I watched last Friday's season premiere of "Master Chef - Junior", I could not help but be embarrassed by my inability to cook. As I've noted in past editorials, I usually have dinner with the Swanson family or Banquet couple. Occasionally, I will have a Healthy Choice meal, but I generally don't cook, other than to use the microwave.
"Master Chef - Junior" is for 8-13 year-old children. The show is hosted by Gordon Ramsay and two other judges. The grand prize of $100,000 will be presented to the winning junior chef at the conclusion of the season. Last Friday's episode was held to find out how the pre-teens would make the perfect hamburger. I was astounded at how well the kids performed.
So, in an effort to learn how to cook, I purchased a crock pot two weeks ago. Granted, it's not much, but it's better than having TV dinners. I won about five pounds of pulled pork two weeks ago and used the crock pot for the first time. I have already purchased a beef roast, along with small red potatoes, carrots, celery and onion for my next endeavor. I plan to start the cooking process this weekend.
In my opinion, the best part of "Master Chef - Junior" is when the kids cry because they're not happy with their "presentation" or when they get kicked off the show for not qualifying for the next round. The children are definitely the stars of the program. Plus, the kids can multi-task, which is something that most men have trouble with.
The only problem I have with "Master Chef - Junior" is that I end being hungry after the show is over.
