One: I have started willingly eating pasta. Probably something you’ve been doing all your life, I know. But when you’re raised by a Korean mother and a Polish/German grandmother, your go-to starches are rice and potatoes. Yet I find myself in the mood for filled pastas (but not other noodles) quite a bit lately. I blame TheBoy.
Two: Wegman’s has an unhealthy hold on me. I buy Wegman’s store brand over the brand names. Like, even with cheese. Best string cheese I’ve had recently, better even than Sargento.
Three: I’m going to count making prepared pasta and sauce as cooking, since it entails boiling water and waiting more than 5 minutes to eat. So, um, I’m (sorta) cooking.
I’m not sure what the original point of this entry was, or even if it had one. BUT I think we can all agree that if I can change into a cooker of starches, the sky is really the limit for those of you with actual culinary talent.
Have your tastes changed since you were a kid?
