You may not need a justification outside of delicious food and zero cleanup, but here are the top 10 reasons you should definitely enjoy the freedom of a night off from cooking.

1) You cooked something extraordinary the last night and are keen to retire with a good batting average.

Why wouldn't you quit while you're ahead?

2) You are renovating or your kitchen is otherwise a disaster zone.

Living without a kitchen- AKA indoor camping

3) All of your cookware is inaccessible for some reason.

Pots and pans have many valuable uses outside of a kitchen

4) Man-flu. Enough said.

Apparently, it’s a real thing. APPARENTLY

5) It’s a national day in some country somewhere and you want to show your support for cultural diversity.

¡Viva Mexico!

6) You saw a spider in the kitchen 6 weeks ago and still haven’t recovered.

No one blames you. This is entirely normal.

7) Your partner/ roomie is on a diet and you kinda get a kick out of messing with them.

Just make sure you share a reaction video with the rest of us.

8) There is a new item on your favourite menu and it looks incredible

Cheese + anything= heaven

9) You got a paper cut and you should really just take the night off to recover.

You need to allow your body the space and time to heal.

10) You’re an adult and no one can tell you not to.
