I Made Something Yummy

I don't enjoy cooking and I'm horrible at grocery shopping. The two sort of go hand in hand.
But I've found when I do cook... it's really yummy.

Last night I was bored of eating frozen Lean Cuisine's... so I stared at the guts of my fridge for a while. Hmmm yellow squash. If I don't eat it today or tomorrow it's bound to go bad. Ah hah... yellow potatoes too.
I chopped them up and put them in the steamer 'til they were nice and soft - then tossed them into a bowl and drizzled basalmic vinegar and grapeseed oil over everything.

Can I say... DeLish!

In other news... did you know that Tootsie Pops have a new flavor? Pomegranate. Serious yum. And that's really important because I only eat red Tootsie Pops - and now there is another red flavor.
Wow. Everything's going my way!

So what does grapeseed oil taste like? I've seen the bottle on the shelf at the grocery store, but have not been brave enough to buy it.

I'm a lot like you when it comes to cooking...I don't cook very often (I'm fortunate in that dear boyfriend cooks every night) but when I do cook, it turns out very yummy and I get all these weird looks and comments about trying to "hide my talent." But I can read...and follow directions...so I'm not sure what the fuss is all about. :)

Hmm. I don't have a very dignified palate - so I poured a little grapeseed oil in a dish and tasted. It tastes like oil.
Sorry that's not helpful.

Apparently, grapeseed oil is supposed to be better for cooking because it takes heat better than say, extra virgin olive oil -- don't cook with that - save it for your salad. But it would be great on my veggie concoction - come to think of it.

And if I remember right, grapeseed oil is supposed to have some other very healthy properties... probably antioxidents and other stuff.
How helpful is that?

Yes, I suffer from the same accusations. Sort of. I guess my friends have heard me say that I DON'T cook so often that they decided that meant CAN'T cook. And like you, I can follow directions so DUH!

So when I have a party, everyone is so shocked, "You're a good cook!" they exclaim.

Yeah - I'd rather cook for 20 than for 1 - so there ya go.
