The problem with cooking is that it's boring. I can wait an hour for a ravening corpse to return to its grave, fairly watchful all the while, but a pot of boiling water is not a cunning foe. It won't arbitrarily choose to remain with a friend for the night, or to sneak back long before the first blush of dawn. It will just sit there, being boring.

An old Terran saying holds that a watched pot never boils. I believe this has been scientifically proven somewhere -- possibly somewhere with slightly different physics than Terra, true, but I am adamant that there is proof to be found. There may be a slight exception to this if one's eyes fire lasers, an ability with limited use in battle but invaluable in the kitchen, but most people can do nothing but wait and try to not look. Looking resets the time until it finally boils. I'm certain of it.

Or, new plan. I could stuff the whole enterprise and see what grub's on at the Inn. Patience required: zero.

New plan it is.
