…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 got to cook for someone

March 22, 2011

I was invited to see a movie tonight, and I offered to make dinner so we could make the movie time.  I tried a new recipe…and it was not great.  I assured my friend that I was a much better cook than the meal would lead him to believe.  I hope he believes me!  Regardless, it was nice having someone to cook for.
