There are a lot of things that I miss from Ohio, but when it comes to cooking there’s one that is almost driving me crazy, the tiny kitchen of the apartment I am sharing right now. Supposedly, it was just upgraded, and don’t get me wrong, the new cabinets and tile are gorgeous, but the person who planned the layout clearly is not a cook. It’s almost impossible to cook there, well, at least as much as I am used to cooking. And don’t even get me started with the “ecological” stove…
That’s why when I cook there I try to make very simple dishes that don’t require a lot of preparation of cooking. I decided that for more complicated dishes I will go to my parents’ house and use their kitchen. Besides, I’ve been cooking just for one, and that’s not a lot of fun, is it? Today I just prepared a very simple lunch that turned out to amazingly delicious. I will be making it for my parents soon to get the seal of approval. But I am sure they are going to love it.
