So, I have to admit — I’m not a very good grown up. What I mean by that is mostly that I’m not good at feeding myself. Between having an internship, going to school, doing homework, trying to get to the gym once in a while, and trying to occasionally have a social life, there is no time for dinner. Sometimes I scroll through my Facebook and am genuinely amazed at people who have kids or even pets and manage to feed them nutritious food on a regular basis, let alone themselves.
I wish that I was one of those people who could say that they love cooking, and it relaxes them after a long day and blah blah blah. Apparently, I’m not one of those people. I hope to one day become one of those people, like when I have a kitchen that I can’t stand in a reach my arms out and touch both wall, or that has at least 2 sq. ft. of actual counter space, and when I don’t have to lug bags of groceries 5 blocks and up 2 flights of stairs every week.
But in the meantime I’m going to make an effort to cook a little more, and a little better. Starting with some of these easy recipes:
Pad Thai – I usually stay away from homemade pad thai recipes because of the number of ingredients that they require, but this one looks like I already have most of the stuff!
One pot pasta, all day everyday.
Homemade pizza is another weekly staple for me, any one of these 50 options would help to mix it up a bit.
If I can find the ingredients, I would love to try cooking Indian.
I’ve made something similar to this Mexican dish using rice, but I love quinoa also. I also love anything that can be made entirely in one pan.
