The Beginning of a New Era?
Well, I must say, I am profoundly touched by the number of comments I got when I actually requested comments. On the other hand, they came at a bad time– I have no idea when I will be able to eat anything blogworthy, let alone have a chance to cook.
Just settled into my dorm, and despite my request to have a kitchen, I was put in the one dorm that has no kitchen of its own. To get to the closest kitchen, I have to walk outside carrying my own pots, pans and utensils, not to mention the ingredients. So I think it’s safe to say this will not be an every day occurence.
So I am only armed with:
A very nice minifridge with a top freezer compartment (ice cubes! Yes!)
An electric kettle
Baby silverware in varying degrees of coolness
(Yes, I really did buy this)
Plastic bowls, chopsticks, cups, etc.
Wooden spoon and two kitchen knives (are these considered lethal weapons?)
A rice cooker
Plan of attack: Master the art of rice cooker cuisine, if there is such a thing. More and more rice cooker cookbooks seem to be popping up on shelves nowadays.
I happen to have a recipe for this, since I forced my dad into writing down his entire cooking repertoire for me before leaving for school, but I feel like it would be cheating to post it without having made it yet.
So stay tuned… In the meantime, I will most definitely be eating lots of cereal and overly salty vegetables from the vegan section of the dining hall.
