College Kids Learn to Cook06.06.2011
Emily and I have officially stepped into the realm of pseudo-adulthood. We started planning and cooking actual meals. And by that, I mean we walked through the grocery store and picked out ingredients that, when prepared and assembled together, create a meal. And hereÂs the kicker: weÂre not using frozen things that we just have to put in the oven or microwave! WeÂre taking a walk on the wild side this summer, stepping outside our comfort zone of Kraft mac ÂnÂ cheese and Lean Cuisines and into a new world of recipes. ItÂs actually been quite an adventure and a nice learning experience indeed!
So far, weÂve made: 1) pasta salad, fruit salad, and rotisserie chicken (okay, that one we just put in the oven to heat it up, but we made the other two)
2) lasagna, salad, and bread (we invited our friends, Pat and Jojo over for this one)
3) and tonight weÂre having tacos and cornbread muffins!
Okay, so maybe they arenÂt the most complicated or fancy meals, but for a lowly college kid, I think weÂre doing alright. And who knows, maybe by the time summer is over weÂll have graduated to something Julia would be proud of.
