As I thought, the roommate situation is helping me to cook. Even if I am still not cooking as often as I would like, I have made a few more meals worth mentioning then I would have prior. There is something about the presence of someone else that helps me stay accountable to myself. I suppose that is a sad statement about me, but I will take it for what it is right now.
One evening both Jamie and I were milling around the kitchen looking for what to make. She had some bagels and greens, I had some chic peas and tahini. We combined our efforts and I wiped up some quick sun dried tomato hummus while she toasted her bagels. Nothing fancy, nothing special, but some hummus and bagel sandwiches go a long way to stave off the hunger.
