So, this week I may have slacked a little bit. Oops. I didn’t cook as much as I would have liked, but I read a lot of interesting things, and I got to cook a little bit here and there! 🙂
Unfortunately, I didn’t cook any BIG dinners of any sort this week. I did eat lots of good food though, I mean it was the super bowl weekend! The couple meals I did make this week were quick and easy. I made burritos with my boyfriend one night, we made sandwiches one night. The other nights I either ate at work, or at a friends house.
My friend, Morgan, made a group of us a really awesome dinner on Saturday night! She made a pasta with creamy red sauce, and these amazing baked green beans! I honestly didn’t even realize you could bake green beans!
Today, while watching the super bowl I got the pleasure of eating prime rib! Oh my gosh, who doesn’t love prime rib!?!? I was so excited when the restaurant I work at said they were having a super bowl party. What is yummier (is that a word??) than prime rib, mashed potatoes, and beer while you’re watching your Broncos win? I didn’t help cook any of the food, but I know how much work goes into making it!
My family had prime rib for Christmas dinner, and it cooked for about three or four hours, I believe. It took a while to get it prepped up, and then baked all day! I was so thankful that they made it for all of us.
Not only did I eat a lot of good food this week, I read up on some interesting information about cooking!
- Did you know that if you put a damp paper towel or rag underneath your cutting board, it prevents it from slipping or wobbling?
- You can caramelize onions very quickly by adding a little bit of baking soda!
- You can use an apple slicer to cut potatoes into perfect chunks
- Don’t use oil it the water when you cook pasta! It will prevent the sauce from sticking to it when it’s done
- Take your shoes off, turn the music on, and have your favorite drink in hand! Enjoy what you’re doing in the kitchen!
Cooking should be a fun time, not a chore! Cook what you enjoy eating, and make the most of it. 🙂
