Cooking

Although recipe’s aren’t included with the various dishes, our cooking process is very simple. Basically we stir fry everything on medium heat. If it’s meat, we flip it over when it looks half cooked and add the other vegetables. Vegetables are cut in to bite sized pieces and put in hardest to softest (onion, carrots, mushrooms, garlic, broccoli stalk, pepper, broccoli etc.) The only exceptions to this cooking meal (that I can think of) follow:

  • Pizza, cooked in the oven for 20 minutes and then turned to broil for a few minutes to make the cheese bubbly
  • Nachos and other cheesy things were also cooked in the oven for a very brief amount of time
  • Pasta was boiled and strained. Other stuff was stir fried to go with. Sauce was heated at medium heat in a pot and then everything was combined.

Orange Pop + Vanilla Ice cream = Creamsicle Float

Note: Don’t they look pretty in our matching Coca-Cola glasses?

Cesar salad with lemon chicken that Adam made while I updated this blog 😉

A slideshow of the making of our burritos. This is what we put in ‘em.

  • Beans and Chicken (we seasoned with 4 or 5 cloves of garlic, salt, a bunch of cumin (!!!) and a small onion)
  • Sour Cream
  • Salsa
  • Guacamole (a perfectly ripe avocado, half a tomato, most of a clove of garlic and some salt all mashed together)
  • CHEESE (more is better, cheddar and mozza blended is nice (we just used cheddar though))
  • Salad (Lettuce, 3 grated carrots (hidden so Adam would eat it (Adam grated it)), a tomato and a half, and a yellow pepper (I like red, Adam likes green, we compromised (no, really, that is a taste compromise)))
  • Jalapenos (for Adam only)

Bonus: Two were left over for brunch!

The making of guacamole for burritos.

A bagel with cheese melted on it makes for a perfect lunch. I experimentally toasted this in the oven on broil and it was perfect and bubbly.

Delish perogies which someone made for me while I was writing a midterm accompanied by a carrot, broccoli, mushroom and onion stir fry. 😀

Who owns the zebra? is the type of logic puzzle I loved all through high school. This is the (messy) work I did in order to solve it.

If you’re intregued there are a ton more puzzles of this variety available here. You have to sign up for the site but it’s free and pretty fun.

Let the puzzle solving commence!
