friday five

friday five!

1. What was the first thing you ever cooked? you know, honestly, i don't remember. it was probably ramen... i was, and still am, a total ramen freak. i do remeber that around 7th grade i discovered that you could make bacon in the microwave. mmm, bacon.

2. What's your signature dish? i can make a lot of goopy, really tasty casseroles, but right now my specialty is a organic vegetarian pasta... penne with olive oil and black olive pesto, mixed with spinach, carrots, mushrooms, zucchini, red bell peppers, olives and garlic, topped with parmesan and baked in the oven for just a few mintes to get the top crispy. great with alfaro's rosemary garlic sourdough and butter. ;-)

3. Ever had a cooking disaster? (tasted like crap, didn't work, etc.) Describe. well, once i was trying to make gravy for a fancy dinner party i was throwing, and misread the recipe... i added two cans of chickn broth rather than two cups. that went down the disposal, and we had butter on our potatos.

4. If skill and money were no object, what would make for your dream meal? my dream meal would be one where i was eating something that tasted good, surrounded by the people i love.

5. What are you doing this weekend? well, tomorrow i'm going to sleep until i wake up, and on sunday my friend katlynn is visiting me. should be fun.
