Cooking Stuff

Where Stuff Is Cooked

And Now I’m in Iowa. With Children? …Really?

This is strange to me, especially since it was so sudden, but especially because it’s Iowa. It’s not too bad though, everything is wicked cheap and hopefully there are some bored, lonely, corn-fed farm girls who would be delighted to be regaled with stories of the big city. But until I find out where they’re all hiding I guess I’ll just be cooking for me.

Oh and my sister, her husband and five kids who live around the corner. Which is the real reason I’m here. Heh. In fact, you’ve already met one of my nieces when she came to visit me a year or so ago. She’s a bit bigger and more entertaining now even if she still isn’t too sure of me.

But this will pass, I’ve been bribing her with food. Oh right, food, that’s why you’re all here! Well, not much going on since I haven’t even gone real grocery shopping yet (something about living near my sister and her fridge full of kid friendly food I’m guessing). But here, this is the last thing I cooked in Lynn in that horrible, tiny kitchen.

It’s braised shredded pork, naan and a red wine vinegar yogurt sauce. Good times. And my sister cooks too! here is some amazing bread that she makes, I’ll post the recipe soon.

The first thing I cooked for them while I was saying at her house (it only took me a week to find an apartment and the contract was hand written of all the crazy things) I made chicken and pasta with a garlic white sauce and broccoli.

They had to all be separate since some kids will eat some thing and not others, etc. It was good, but I’m not used to cooking for groups so it wasn’t as good as I wanted. And in case you were worried about the Real Bob put your fears to rest, he is fine.  In fact he loves the leather couch that came with the apartment, but then so do I. 495Which is good since at the moment it’s also my bed. Heh. I’ll do a whole post about my new kitchen later, just wanted to check in and such.

    Welcome to the Midwest! Let me know if you ever make it to Minneapolis. 🙂 Your niece is the cutest and I’ll bet she grows to love everything you make.

      Yeah, she pretty much is the cutest. There’s lots more pictures where that came from too. 😀
