Had Ann over for dinner Sunday, and Abby made fancy Macaroni and Four Cheeses. I forgot to photograph it Sunday, but Monday night leftovers were delicious.
Abby also made fancy flourless chocolate cake that was great.
And tonight, I made pretzels! They didn’t turn out quite right (I think I need to de-gas them more and also boil them in baking soda water, I was trying for Bayrisch hard pretzels and really they’re like rolls with salt)
This is changing directions, Little Sis is going to join in and we are going to do a bit of food blogging for cooking-lazy kids on a budget. I’m just starting out in life, and Wanna is just moving in to a house for college. This means that we are in a not-so-unique position of cooking for ourselves with not much time to be fancy and a desire to be somewhat healthy. Hopefully, by documenting some of our favorite recipes (or some of our flops), we’ll cook in greater diversity and healthier than otherwise.
I am going to try and post pictures of what AB and I cook, along with recipes as much as possible. To give a vague idea of budget constraints, we’re living in Maryland (way more expensive than the Midwest we’re used to), allocating about $85/week to groceries for 2 people. It was more expensive at the beginning, but as we stocked up on some of the staples, each week has gotten a little better.
I also hope this gives a little bit of insight into what my little sis is doing at college, since I can’t check up on her this year.
