Well. Not only is this summer my first internship (therefore first exposure to the real-world-real-people work), it's also my first summer with a real kitchen and a real need to feed myself.
Hence, I must learn to cook.
day 1 of cooking, I made eggs for myself, Mommy (who was still here
after driving out with me before flying back home), and my apartment
I managed to 1) fail at scrambled eggs, 2) fail
at flipping eggs, 3) fail at adding the right amount of oil, 4) fail and
manage to burn the nonstick pan.
2 of real cooking was my first day of work. I couldn't get the
temperature of the pan hot enough to cook the eggs (I was worried about a
repeat from the day before when the temperature was wayyyyy too hot)
for at least 20 minutes. Good thing I got up so early before I actually
had to be leaving for work...
Day 3 of real cooking saw me turn on the wrong burner and wonder why my pan wasn't heating up for the longest time.
Day 4 of real cooking had the right burner, the right pan, and the right egg flip! Now if only that success can be repeated.
only thing I can really say is that I seem like a fast learner, right?
It only took 4 days of forcing myself to cook so I wouldn't starve! But
that was only breakfast. After our first day of work, we all ate dinner
together (me and the 3 apartment mates). Each one of them made a dish or
two....and I washed the dishes.
:) I'd say that was a
fair trade. Observe how to cook while cleaning all the pans and stuff so
that the few dishes could use them too. I will learn by the end of the
