Welcome to my life.
Okay, I have a confession. I. Do. Not. Know. How. To. Cook. I've posted recipes on this blog, but it's all very easy and store bought stuff. After a minor stove & Fire incident, (while making tea) I tend to not even attempt actually cooking. Last week my good friend, Ming, and I were trying to think of things we could do and then I told her I couldn't cook. She immediately found a recipe that involved a stove (which made me slightly nervous) and we started cooking. (BTW: her house is adorable). The recipe was, , which she found on Blue Apron. First, we cut up vegetables and then we made the rice (don't forget to put in the vinegar or else it will taste bland.). (Fun fact: up until now I actually didn't believe that onions made you cry. That's how much of a cooking-virgin I am). Then we made salsa, but I wasn't really into it (it involved peaches). Then we cooked the pork chops. I was most nervous about that, but it was really fun (even though the smoke made the fire alarms go off). I flipped those chops like a pro by the time we wear done! (EW I can't believe I just said that). I suggest seasoning them with not just salt and pepper but something fun like a little chili powder or burger seasoning. To give the rice a little more flavor, we added a little salt and a lot of lemon.
I never realized how much more satisfying food taste when you cook it yourself. This recipe tasted really awesome and it was pretty healthy. I would definitely recommend it!
Thanks Ming for teaching me how to cook and giving me a great day!!!
