You know, I don't consider myself a terribly domestic person, but there are very few things more satisfying to me than cooking. Something about knowing that I created this, with my own hands -- I love it. And it's not like I usually have someone to cook for (save for the times when [ profile] spazzula is kind enough to eat what I cook *lol*) so it's only for me. My roommates just don't appreciate the home cooked food appeal and many times would rather choose McNuggets over, say, my baked salmon and rosemary potatoes.

It's enough to give someone a complex *lol*

But that's one of my favorite things about being home for the couple days I am during my fall travel season -- cooking dinner. And breakfast. And lunch, if I didn't have to be at the office.

And that's my timer. I should go eat :)

Mmmm, rosemary potatoes. I've only tried making those once, and that was... before I actually had rosemary, *blush*

I did, however, make the tomato & basil pasta completely from memory tonight, *proud*

...And you know I have absolutely no objections to you cooking for me, seeing as how I tend to peer over your shoulder and write down how you make stuff, *lol*

Hey, that's what I was making tonight -- the tomato and basil pasta because that's what I had at the apartment and I didn't feel like hititng up the Teeter *lol* Good stuff. Yay for making it from memory.

I like cooking for you because you're positive reinforcement. You don't choose McNuggets over me. I don't think I'm a bad cook.

And, as much as I'm afraid of this answer -- how did you try to make rosemary potatoes without the *rosemary*?

...I substituted a bit of italian seasoning, since it contains rosemary. It wasn't bad, and I used less than I would have it it'd been actual rosemary, but I also immediately put rosemary on my grocery list, heh. Mostly I haven't done it again because I found it difficult to tell when the potatoes were cooked enough; that's one dish I haven't actually watched you make, you just told me how you did it.

Dom likes the tomato & basil pasta, and it's few enough ingredients that I could buy all of it at the store without breaking the budget, since our little suite is stocked with milk, eggs, and half a dozen mini boxes of cereal, heh.

We'll have to make it sometime. It's another one of those 'I know it's done when I know' which is so not conducive to explaining in writing *lol*

That, and do you like rice pilaf? I have a great bit I make :)

Don't tell me all you're planning to eat is cereal. Bad Stacey, bad.

Noooo. I stocked the fridge and pantry with groceries today, including stuff to make for dinner so we're not eating out.

I don't think I've ever had rice pilaf. Of course, I'd never had couscous before, either, and see how that turned out, heh.
