I really wish I liked cooking. It would make my life so much easier. I find myself putting off making dinner in hopes of an unexpected invite out (I’m not talking anywhere fancy, I could always go for some pizza) or an invite to someone’s (ahem, my boyfriend’s) house for dinner.
I can cook the basics. Canned soup, Kraft Mac and Cheese… just kidding.
But really, I can cook pasta, chicken, your typical vegetables… but beyond that, I’m useless. Every New Year’s Eve, I vow “this year I will learn how to cook!” and it never happens.
Occasionally, I’ll try something new. I made shrimp tacos about a month ago, and they were FINE, but just FINE. Nothing I ever make is great. Plus, they took me forever to make because I was so worried about messing up the recipe!
Basically, what I’m doing here is vowing to the blogosphere that I will learn how to cook. I’m going to cook simple dishes for dinner and blog about them. So, hold me to it. Please.
And, I’ll start with these recipes…
