My roomie wasn’t feeling so good tonight…
What’s to be done? Soup. Hearty soup.
Carrots, potatoes, peas, pasta, mushrooms, salt, chicken stock. Simmer for a while. Add some spices.
Voilá! Instant feel-better-ness.
(I also made some salmon in the oven. Olive oil, dill, salt, basil. More instant feel-better-ness!)
Tonight was my first chance to shop since returning to England on Tuesday! I had eaten at school the previous day, and borrowed a pepper and some pasta from my friends the day before. Needless to say, I was very excited to get back on track with cooking!
My Bulgarian housemate, Dessi, and I went to the store and picked up fixings for something delicious. We each made pasta, mine with tortellini and hers with rice and shared some soup and salad as well.
I baked my chicken (thighs) with pesto under the skin for moisture. Highly recommended!
Also, As you’ll see in the photos, it’s definitely possible to eat well in college if you put in the effort, but having a matching dining set is another story!!
