Food Glorious Food

There are so many things I want to learn to cook. I am a little stuck on what I should cook next. There are so many options and then once I know what I am going to cook I have to find a good recipe. Here are the options.

  • Cucumber sandwiches; like the ones you see in movies with English tea
  • Breads (rye, sourdough...?)
  • Awesome french toast recipe I found on another blog
  • Pickle soup (maybe just to see what the heck it is)
  • Poached eggs (it's harder than you'd think)
  • My mother's to-die-for Minestrone
  • Waffles, and when I say waffles I mean that I want to find an amazing recipe, one that will blow you out of the water, because waffles are amazing. And for all of those who think there is no difference between waffles and pancakes I will write a section explaining this as well.
Okay, cucumber sandwiches sound pretty delicious. I'll make those first, it'll ease me back into cooking.

Here's a picture of someone else's sandwiches, but don't they look good? Cool, fresh and perfect for summer? I'll put up my own pictures but these people had a nice camera and I want you all to appreciate how pretty they are.

Summertime is Here

Summer is here... I think. In Utah you can never be sure. Curse you Utah. Well the birds are singing and I am now working everyday at two different care centers. I have never worked full time before. 40 hours is a lot of time.

I work a lot of graveyard shifts that go from around ten at night till seven in the morning. Working that shift is kind of like living in the Twilight Zone! Everything is backwards, you eat a meal in the middle of the night. Even though it is not what I am used to I am really starting to like it.

I am getting wayyyy excited to leave for Europe in 3 months! I still have a million things to do and a ton of money to earn. I am just worried that things won't work out, it seems like a trip to Europe is not something that I could ever achieve. It was always a dream, and a lot of times people tell you dreams are not realistic so don't get your hopes up. I guess I still have some of that ringing through my head.

I think I'll try to be productive now.
