In the Kitchen

My cooking skills can be described as "non-existent" and "comical" when I attempt to. Today I decided to try a recipe my sister made. It's a REALLY simple dish, even for the culinary challenged (read: myself). All you need is:

  1. sausage
  2. one red pepper
  3. one tomato
  4. orzo or rice (even pasta if you prefer)
  5. some garlic powder
  6. one jalapeno
First cook rice, orzo, or pasta. Roast the peppers on stove-top to soften. Cut up tomato and red pepper. Put in skillet. Cut sausage, put in skillet. Add garlic powder and jalapenos. Cook for about 25 minutes, stir occasionally. Serve over rice. Add sriracha hot sauce if desired.

Cooking has made me realize I need to stop being so spoiled and make more of an attempt to try new things. It also made me realize that I can't wait to get our registry finished and get some new cookware! I have two can openers, both of which are pretty rusty and don't work well at all. I am concerned about catching tetanus after opening a can of olives!
