Since I’ve had a kitchen in my student accommodation, I’ve ‘cooked’ a meal most days, but often this doesn’t stretch far beyond a cheese toastie or frozen pizza.
Now I’ve nothing to do but revise, I thought I may as well cook myself some decent food. To keep me entertained and to somewhat decrease my intake of crap. The lack of utensils/pans/spices/oils makes everything that bit harder than at home, but I guess I’ll have to cope one day.
Some experiments the last couple of nights:
Tomato and Feta Pastry Tart
Time to prepare: 5 mins
Cooking time: 15 mins
After remembering to defrost the pastry (the main downside to this meal), spread the pesto, chop and place some tomatoes and crumble some feta. Cook in oven on a normal heat. Remove and serve with ripped basil on top.
Really simple, and tastes pretty good.
Slightly more ambitious this time, I tried a proper recipe as opposed to a pile-stuff-on-pastry method.
Took the best part of an hour, but turned out reasonably well and proved a nice meal served with warm ciabatta.
Next time, maybe I’ll see if I can branch away from Italian cooking. I’ll find it difficult, believe me. Any suggestions are welcome.
