What’s your favourite recipe?

As part of the August Healthy Living/Fitness Blogger Writing Challenge, this is the sixteenth post in a month long series of posts.

Today’s post is discussing your favourite recipe.  When I read the Fitness Cheerleader’s post this morning, I had to laugh.  My idea of cooking is opening a container of salad and dumping it into a bowl.  Seriously.  I am not a cook by any stretch of the imagination.  How I lived for so long, I have no idea.  (I think it involved lots of Lean Cuisines and ice cream.) Luckily, Steph, my flatmate loves to cook.  So she pretty much cooks all our meals.  So I totally come off entitled when I tell this story, but I really don’t like to cook.  She does, so it’s a win win.

Imagine the irony when we got back from the gym (starving) and she said she was heating up some of her chili (I don’t eat spicy food or red meat) since she was hungry and needed to do some reading.  So I had to make myself dinner.  Which is why I found myself in Tesco Metro at half seven looking for something to eat, since my culinary skills would have ruined the food we would have had for dinner.  I ended up with salad and a cheese quesadilla (basically 2 mini wraps and a slice of reduced fat cheddar melted burned on the stovetop).

If I had to pick a favourite recipe it would be one of the few things I can cook, which is pasta.

1. Cook pasta

2. Heat sauce of your choice on the stove, add frozen veggies and Quorn mince

3. When they both are done, mix together and top with an obscene amount of parmesan cheese.

This is my go to meal when I am on my own, provided I have the sauce and Quorn.  If not I just add some butter to the pasta and some veggies.

The only other thing I am decent at making, is Carrots ‘N’ Cake’s granola.  I dump the ingredients into a pot (we don’t have any mixing bowls), stir, and dump into a baking pan until toasty.  🙂  This and some greek yogurt has been my go to breakfast this week, as I’m a bit burnt out on eggs.

    That’s so funny! I don’t cook either. When I went to the University of London for a year my friend, Phil, said, “Lisa, you don’t cook; you don’t clean; you’d make a terrible wife.” “Yes,” I said, “but I’d make an excellent husband.” True story.

    Here is my post (and not particularly clean, but it is tasty!): http://sheslosingit.net/2012/08/21/jjs-decadent-dessert/

      I am sure I could probably learn, but right now it’s soooooo much easier to have someone do it for me! 🙂
