I’ve been feeling more confident in my cooking skills. My confidence came from practice, but also from a little pep talk from some friends. I was always worried about cooking for other people because I didn’t think my food would be good enough. Well after my pep talk, I realized that it didn’t matter what other people thought. I would cook whatever I thought sounded good and that’s all that mattered.
Since then I’ve been experimenting a little bit more. More like throwing random things together and calling it a meal. For the most part I’ve been pretty pleased with the results.
One meal that I was really pleased with happened on a whim. I was in a rush and needed something quick. I had some leftover pasta but no sauce and wanted to dress it up a little bit.
After perusing the fridge I discovered I had spinach, tomatoes, vanilla yogurt, brie and parmesan cheese. These items seem a little random, but together they made for a great dish.
I sauteed the spinach and tomatoes then added in the vanilla yogurt, brie and parmesan to create a nice sauce. To add a little more flavor I added black pepper and cayenne pepper. Then I just poured this over the pasta I had. This was super easy and quick to make and just what I needed.
Another quick meal I made happened because I needed something healthy for lunch. I’m new to watching what I eat and had gotten healthy foods, but didn’t have a plan on how to put them together. Well, I ended up sauteing some kale and adding black beans, corn and some tuna. Super easy, delicious and very healthy!
