When it comes to meals I really try to keep everything as simple as possible – but still yummy of course! I just moved to my very first apartment and it has definitely been an adjustment to cook for myself… not that I’m a bad cook or anything because I think that I do a pretty good job, but I just can’t stand how long it can take sometimes to cook a meal.
Also when I go grocery shopping I spend far too much money. I’ve actually been using an app lately called Instacart where someone does the shopping for you and delivers it to you (kinda like postmates)
I went to Trader Joes the other day at like 8am because I wanted to beat the crowd but apparently, it is always packed, which blows my mind. I really love Trader Joes because the food is high quality and not as expensive as Whole Foods.
One thing to know about me & my cooking style is that I really do not follow directions 🙂
The other night for dinner I made a Garlic & Lemon Shrimp Pasta dish.
This is the final product – also, do not cut lemons with a serrated blade because you will be left wondering why your lemon slices are looking lame. You need to cut lemons with a plain sharp blade.
This in total took me maybe 18 minutes. What I wish I would have done was added a little more minced garlic, a little more pepper, and added some spinach!
Onto the next delicious meal…
I love tacos… like seriously love tacos/taco salads/burritos. I like Chipotle, they’re great and all but it is definitely not the same as cooking up some homemade tacos! Also, I didn’t follow a recipe for this – I think that’s what makes it so much more unique.
In total this took me about 30 minutes because there were a handful of steps that occurred simultaneously.
This next meal is probably my favorite …
This is the most basic meal one can make – that’s why I love it so much. I had this for lunch the other day and it only took 5-7 minutes.
This is a little different of a post for me so be sure to let me know if you liked it! Also, I am not a chef (clearly) but I did want to share some of the meals I have been enjoying lately! 🙂
Thank you for keeping up with me! Much love. Xoxo
