How to get more cooking done: Dishes first, the internet - later.
It's amazing how much easier it is to throw something together if you're standing in a clean, or clean-ish, kitchen.
Oh, and by "cooking" I also mean opening and draining a can of beans, slicing some mozzarella and throwing some cherry tomatoes on top. To make this happen, it really helps if the colander and cutting board are both clean. If you also have a clean plastic container, you can have your meal to go.
