    Cook For Myself

    I cook for myself all the time.  All the food in our house that I can eat requires cooking of some kind, usually stove-top or oven.  Most of the time it's box-foods with recipes but every so often it's something fresh. Like today.  Today, about half an hour ago, I...

    I'm not great at cooking

    or anything but I can make dishes that tastes rather good in my opinion. Sometimes it's fun to try out making something new or preparing a favourite meal. Other times it's just a drag since I live alone so I always have to do the cooking and it gets tedious.

    I made a new soup tonight.

    Just threw a bunch of stuff together and it turned out good. Chicken broth, celery, carrots, heavy cream, kidney beans, white onion, salt, and rice.
