…my tastebuds have changed

May 25, 2011

When I was younger, I was a super picky eater.  Pretty much every meal had corn, because that’s the only vegetable I would eat.

Tonight I was chopping tomatoes for tacos, and decided I had too much.  So I set a couple of slices aside, crumbled some goat cheese, and poured on some balsamic vinegar.  HEAVEN.  And I suddenly felt very sorry for my mother, and all those years she had to cater to my juvenile tastebuds.


…I didn’t buy a ton of food

May 24, 2011

My cooking club was supposed to meet tonight, but a couple people couldn’t make it, and “three people does not make a club.”  So we rescheduled.  And I’m glad I didn’t buy a bunch of ingredients (like veggies) that would have just gone to waste.

…dinner turned out well

April 10, 2011

I’m generally a pretty good cook, but the last time I made dinner for a guy, the dish didn’t turn out as well as I had hoped.  Not my fault – it was a new recipe, and it just wasn’t all that great of a dish.  So tonight I made a favorite standby, Pork Chops with Apples and Stuffing.  It turned out well, and I did some sauteed mushrooms and roasted potatoes and carrots to go along with it.  Much better than the last meal I made for him.  And proof that I am a good cook.
