But not enough that I actually know how to cook.
Because I don't.
I mean, I'm great at boiling pasta, mashing potatoes and scrambling eggs (and I make awesome sauteed vegetables, if I do say so myself), but beyond that I'm clueless.
Thanks to my
My theory is: the more ideas I have of yummy meals, the more likely I am to actually teach myself to cook......and not just order from Grub-Hub or fix myself a PB sandwich.
ANYWAY, I digress (as always). So.....
Here is the first meal I made for myself in my new big girl apartment (courtesy of that $130 trip to the Jewel).

TA-DA!!! It's a pesto pizza!
And seriously, it was delish!
Here's the recipe that I loosely followed: Budget Bytes' Pesto Focaccia Pizza
By loosely, I mean that I just bought a whole-wheat pizza crust. I'm learning to cook.... teaching myself to make pizza dough/focaccia bread is way too much at this stage. It was fun and super easy-- just a pre-made pizza crust, jar of pesto, bag of shredded Mozz and some roma tomatoes. Even I couldn't screw it up! I just followed the cooking instructions on the label of the pizza crust and it turned out great =)
If you have any recipe recommendations or first-time cooking tales, I'd love to hear them!
Have a great Thursday =)
