Being back in college means a lot more cooking on my part. And by cooking, I mean “what can I put together in a bowl and call dinner?” I’d like to think that this is my specialty because I can work with almost anything and find a way to make it a good meal. And I like to think I can make something seemingly boring into something with a little more class. What do you think?
When I’m feeling fancy, I usually make some Shrimp Linguini—simple enough. You can basically make your pasta, and then slowly saute garlic and red pepper flakes with some shrimp, and you have an easy pasta dish.
And when I feel extremely lazy, I make my Kid’s Meal Mac & Cheese—I make mac & cheese from the box mixed with some frozen veggies (green beans and corn), and then top it with some chicken nuggets.
Finally, the moment you’ve been all waiting for: dorm cuisine! Yes, I’m in college now so dorm cuisine has finally been introduced to my life. Today’s quick-fix meal is a deconstructed strawberry shortcake made by my friend Alyssa. All you need are some biscuits, mashed strawberries, and Cool Whip and presto! Instant comfort food.
