As I said yesterday, I’m the opposite of Jane. Although I love to feed people, I’m a total slacker—I avoid cooking whenever possible. But even in MY house, the kitchen sees a lot of action when Daniel’s home. It’s been used more in the last week than in the last 6 months. His friends are always around, scouring the refrigerator and pantry for anything edible. If it’s not moving, it’s gone.
Tonight a friend of Daniel’s is here from out of town. He’s from Japan, and he’s been in college all year. So even though we exclusively usually eat takeout, I thought it’s the least we could do to give him a homecooked meal.
Turns out the guys had overlooked a few ingredients in the refrigerator and pantry. It wasn’t the feast I had at Jane’s—but it was a really good meal, that anyone would have been proud to serve…
…Daniel did a great job cooking it.
