in Cooking: Day 2, Omelette

The omelette did not come out as well as the scrambled eggs did. You can see the browning in the picture. However I think it happened because the pan I was using was of a smaller size that worked well for the eggs but not for the omelette. I’m not sure what sort of procedures there are for cooking the top of the omelette without overcooking the bottom but I’ll do some research on youtube and such and hopefully figure it out.

I haven’t yet figured out what else I can cook but hey! I can work with eggs now! Besides this I can already make toast (with a toaster) and find a banana and some orange juice so there’s what I always see as the classic American breakfast.

Once I figure out what I can make I will write more. A good friend of mine is visiting for a few days starting Sunday so if she’s willing to help me out with it we’ll cook up some stuff and I’ll learn more in the process.

in Cooking: Day 1, Scrambled Eggs

I should probably find better lighting for the picture. But that issue aside, I think the scrambled eggs came out real well!

I did some research on youtube first to make sure I had a a good idea of how to go about making scrambled eggs and it wasn’t too complicated. Watching kids half my age show me how to make scrambled eggs was a bit of a blow to my ego though. Still, I did it!

What’s next? I think maybe I’ll make Scrambled Eggs Lvl. 2 (That is, I’ll try adding things to the scrambled eggs) or I will try to make anĀ omelette. Wish me luck!

in Cooking: T-minus One Day

Having settled in comfortably in the house, I will wake up tomorrow morning and attempt to make myself some food. I plan to start simple and create a gourmet scrambled egg dish that will appease even the gods! From there I will make one cooking attempt per day until I need to pack again to return to Duke. Let me know if you have an idea of something I can try!
