What’s the one item in your kitchen you can’t possibly cook without? A spice, your grandma’s measuring cup, instant ramen — what’s your magic ingredient, and why?
I am completely inept at cooking. Like, so clueless I can burn water kind of ineptness.
Needless to say, I don’t exactly have a well stocked kitchen. Everything that I cook comes out of a box with clearly printed instructions on the side. I don’t have much ability when it comes to making anything more complex than a grilled cheese – and even those I have been known to burn.
When it comes to cooking for myself, there is one old standby that can never go wrong. Pasta!
And by pasta, I mean some slightly over-cooked elbow macaroni, but with a little creativity you can make it into just about anything. If you’re feeling simple, some butter and parmesan cheese. For some tang, try Italian salad dressing and olives. A little ranch and some sunflower seeds gives it a country salad feeling. Or you can go with marinara for a cheap spaghetti.
Basically, I love pasta. It’s cheap, it’s easy, and it’s hard for me to ruin it.
Although just give me some time, I’ll figure a way…
