and then... they had kitchen equipment




*cue heavenly music*

so by our second week here, Daiku and I finally sorted out the kitchen situation- and got a bunch of basic equipment! I'd never been so happy to see ordinary pots and pans before. and what was the first thing we cooked after living off of packaged and convenience foods for so long? if you know me, it should come as little surprise that the answer involved: brown rice! lentils! and greens! I could probably eat some version of this meal every day. the brown rice and lentils were cooked together, and on top went a mixture of greens sauteed with garlic and olive oil, topped with raisins, sultanas, and balsamic vinegar. heaven on a plate. 

ATTENTION: For those who generously made donations for my sky dive last month, I will be holding the long-promised drawing on this blog in the next couple of days. Watch for your name! If you win, I'll need you to email me about the prize (and your postal address, of course!)

for the longest time after we moved to california, steve and i had only 2 forks, 2 knives, and 2 spoons. when his brother came over for dinner, we would generously give him a fork and then discuss amongst ourselves who would eat dinner with a spoon. it feels so adult to have kitchen equipment. :)

I'm so far behind on blog reading and I really enjoyed catching up with you. Looks like you're having a wonderful time in the UK and enjoying some good food. It's great to hear you can now properly cook. Can't wait to see what you whip up next.

Can I come live with you and we can make Cheezley sandwiches and enjoy cuppa teas with crumpets?
