Look Ma, I Cooked!

This is a blog post I never thought I’d be making: Look at this stuff I cooked!

I don’t cook. I don’t like it, I’m not good at it, and I don’t have the patience for it. There is a reason I’m dating a certified chef after all. I mean, he’s cute and stuff too, but it’s mostly the cooking thing. However, I freaking love to eat, and I get into these phases where I’m absolutely obsessed with one particular food. It’s all I want to eat at all times. A while back, it was those microwaveable mini pizzas, then it was sushi, then kettle corn, etc. Currently, it’s vegetables, particularly Brussels sprouts, cauliflower and mushrooms, which I suppose isn’t the worst thing to want to gorge yourself on.

Friday night’s dinner consisted of steamed cauliflower and carrots, with vegan cheese sauce and crushed black pepper. Now, I am by no means vegan or even vegetarian. The cheese was purchased by accident, and I am not one to let good cheese go to waste. This was like mac and cheese’s fancy, healthy, delicious cousin.  I realize cheese on cauliflower isn’t exactly groundbreaking, but it was so freaking good that I had to talk about it.

On Saturday, all I wanted was some sautéed mushrooms. Actually, I wanted it on the side of a great big steak, but I am not quite capable of such things and had no one around to do it for me. So instead, I threw the mushrooms in with some red and yellow pepper, cauliflower, and steamed Brussels sprouts, sautéed them in butter and added an amazing hoi sin sauce. I’ll be honest, the Brussels spouts were weird in the stir fry, but they’re my favourite so I figured I’d try it anyway.

Basically, this post was to brag that for one weekend, I was self-sufficent enough to feed myself. I’m always amazed when I cook something that’s actually edible, and not from a box. This might be a dumb blog post to make, but hey, what’s the point of doing stuff if you can’t share it on the internet, right?

…that was sarcasm. Good night, all.
