4.6.08 cooking with Dave!

This evening, Dave and I cooked for ourselves and his parents at his parents' house. We made Chicken stir fry with cashews and a whole menagerie of vegetables.

Dave's job was to choose vegetables for the stir fry and to chop.

Smiling while chopping.

I was on stove duty (and eating cashews while doing so.)

The finished product.

It was actually quite yummy - we were impressed with our combined cooking efforts. His parents were impressed too. I like to cook in general, and don't suck, but I'm not the 'best ever.' My food is edible, and good, but not necessarily imaginative or innovative. So, we had a lot of fun, and it was really the first time we cooked together as a team for a dinner meal. Sure, we've made cookies/baked together, and I have made dinner while he watches, and we make easy things like grilled cheese and pancakes together, but this was the first meal with like, prep and different steps. It was fun! And it was a bit easier than cooking alone cause he would make the sauce for the next stop while I was watching the wok. We're a good team, what can I say.

After dinner, I was talking to his mom about the weddings and events that are coming up. She was asking me about graduation and if I have any more solid plans after school. I don't. I'm going to continue in web design and doing freelance web design until I find something 'better.' I'm sure finding a job could be emotionally draining and I'm not looking forward to that.

Well, if I don't finish all my papers, I won't graduate. So, I'm going to go try to get a little bit more work done this evening...
