After receiving several disparaging comments about the cooking skills of myself and my roommates following my last post, I feel the need to reassure people that we will not starve this summer.
In fact, we’re starting to learn our way around our peculiarly stocked kitchen. We have two saucepans (one missing a handle) and three lids, none of which match the pans. Last night, convinced that the presence of three lids meant we had three pans, I spent 10 minutes rooting around for the hypothetical third pot, to no avail.
The thermometer on the oven, as it turns out, bears no relation to the actual temperature in the appliance. I haven’t worked out the exact difference yet, but I’m fairly convinced it’s about 100 degrees off. Nevertheless, I have managed to conjure up something in the oven.
We also do not own a rolling pin; a fact I discovered in the middle of trying to roll out dough today. Luckily, a Nalgene bottle appears to have fairly decent rolling pin functionality.
Thus, I feel like I can safely assure everybody that we will be able to sustain ourselves this summer.
Oh, and I will be posting more information about my internship soon. Since the WLP deals with a lot of confidential information I have to be extra careful that I don’t breach confidentiality and need to be attentive to this when drafting posts. I will, however, talk about my first exciting week soon!
