Ooh, that could be fun!
Sat Sep 1, 2018 4:41pm

I am definitely planning on lots of beans, rice, and pasta. Maybe soups, too, because those can last for a good long while.

If I impress my roommates enough with my cooking, I just might be able to convince them to chip in for meals and I'll make enough for everyone. :P

As for easy and quick—my brother's favorite pasta. Angel hair, enough olive oil to coat the pasta, about three or four cloves of garlic, parsley, salt, and red pepper. Heat up the oil in a saucepan, let the garlic brown, throw it into the pasta pot, and add parsley, salt, and red pepper flakes to taste. It doesn't take long to make, either—basically, as soon as you drain the pasta and throw in the oil and other things, it's good to go.

            You don't just crack an egg over your ramen while it's cooking? And hey, if you're feeling really fancy, nuy some pre-cooked chicken and tear it up into chunks and put that in the ramen too.

              That sounds like an ingredient. Don't you know that's a dirty word? hS still remembers someone managing to set off the fire alarms by burning pasta in his first year at uni
