So over the weekend I made a feast of sorts. My boyfriend was visiting for the weekend and being the long distance relationship that it is I had to make an impressive meal. Now, from my proof of previous (or lack-there-of) experience my skills were doubted from the start. I did warn him to eat a big lunch, just in case my killer kitchen skills took a seat on the struggle bus along next to my ability to keep my room clean.
- Wheat rolls
- Green beans
- Chicken stuffed with cheese and brocoli
- Al dente egg fettucini and alfredo sauce
The best part of this? I only microwaved the sauce! The chicken did not even come with a microwave option. Fancy stuff I was dealing with. The pasta was perfection! The chicken took 32 minutes and the pasta took a total of 7 including the boiling water time ( I did remember to boil the water first). This cook time allowed me more time to enjoy hor dourves with him, and yes I did need to google how to spell that. By hor dourves I mean baby carrots and ranch and brie and wheat thins.
He ate all of it! It looked like a real meal. I wish I took a picture. Needless to say my rep as a chef as improved exponentially. Although I do not known the next time I will spend that much time in the kitchen. Probably when I move out and need to collect the array of silverware and plates I contributed to the house. Most of which I rarely use because take out or delivery supplies its own! Idea, delivery al dente … ?
AND I worked more on my poster….
- PASTA taking up too much space, too bold and large, more space needed
- Get rid of perfection in 3 minutes
- Move made here enjoyed everywhere close to name
- Cooking demo bigger
- Use 2 fonts instead of 3
I left the green beans in the microwave (they were the steamers kind) and found then two days later when heating up left over chinese food… will I ever learn?
Thanksgiving break. A time for friends, family, and homework.
I do not understand teachers thought processes on that. “Oh shoot, they miss three days worth of studio classes. I better give them three class days worth of homework.” (NOT that this mentality applies to this class… just classes in general.)
This is the poster I thought most successful. The first few were too busy. I also changed what slogan I used from tender but firm to enjoyed anywhere.
Look how it all lines up! Goodness I love typefaces. Oh so much. Seriously.
and now it gets critiqued today. so I will enjoy being temporarily finished.
