This summer has been full of monumental changes that have affected my life in big and small ways. School starts next week and I am quickly trying to establish some semblance of order to my life and trying to find a new normal.
One thing I am trying to do these days is figure out how to grocery shop and cook for one person. In the chaos of trying to find center for myself, I have been eating out A LOT. Too much take out, too many cheeseburgers–and my roommate has brought home fried chicken on a couple occasions. The love I have for fried chicken skin knows no bounds.
I need to start cooking again and ban fast food and soda from my life. NEED.
I have cooked a bit this summer. Most notably, I made this last week. The roommate took it to work for lunch and said it was great. I even caught him eating a bowl of it cold, straight out of the fridge.
I also made oven roasted salsa, using the cherry tomatoes growing on my porch, last week. And tonight, I will make some blueberry ketchup.
I hope everyone’s summers are going well…
I will updating more frequently as I dive back into cooking this fall. Stay tuned…
