In an attempt to stay
distracted busy during my “injured time”, I’ve decided to tackle some of my less-developed life skills that have since been overshadowed by ballet. Par exaaample, I have never been a regular Top Chef. I can make a mean grilled cheese. Seriously. My grilled cheeses should win awards. But recipes longer than 3 steps (butter bread, stack [dat] cheese, grill) has always slightly intimidated me. So, with some free time on my hands, a constantly-hungry tummy and some courage, I will take on the kitchen, one easy dish at a time.
For my first
trying endeavor fun cooking experiment, I chose a Pinterest-inspired recipe for garlic roasted asparagus. I do think it turned out pretty well, although next time I think I could ease up on the garlic just a bit. I was having too much fun mincing it up, I guess!
In the end it only took about 20 minutes from start to finish, but I was so hungry by the end I wasted no time serving it up (to myself) over a bed of mixed greens with some of my rommate’s famous homemade salad dressing and a nice big glass of white wine.
Ahh, nothing like freshly prepared veggies. Until next time, bon appétit, mes amis!
