bad idea

i will give up to try new recipes if i not have all of the ingredients and i will stop making up substitutes that i don't even know that would work. Complete disaster today.

Only good thing is that i made bulgur wheat with dried cranberries for my sis [she had already ate soo i already have lunch tomorrow] and came out good

i also made some caramel popcorn that was good and my mom loveeeed :D
and made a ranch jalapeño thing that came out too spicy :S but otherwise good

not much done today i was hoping to find stuff to do when i'm at school already coz i wont have any time for cooking for now i only have the pizza pockets [made with broccoli and cheese sauce] that i froze i guess i could keep doing that with different ingredients each time and maybe bigger for a more fulfilling meal, i guess thats ok... and frozen yogurt cups pre made [in case im late in the morning]
anddd take lots of fruits with me all the time so i can eat in between so i don't end up eating junk food just coz i cant eat a burrito [bean burritos gross me out]

i should star meal planning but im not relaly good at it

lets see what the kitchen holds up for me tomorrow :)

finally !

im so happy coz i was finally able to cook eggplant, i had tried already but it always came out bad and last night was delicious :]

i grilled it in big thin circles with a bit of butter and oregano. when it was done i put them all in a plate and poured some marinara sauce i had left from other dishes and some Parmesan and mozarella cheese and microwaved it until the cheese melted and yummy :D

i think the secret is soaking it for enough time in water with plenty of salt

ps. im lacto-ovo vegetarian

so im gonna start a blog, about me becoming vegetarian :)

im a medicine student, i have an adorable boyfriend and love writing [wich doesnt mean i am any good at it] i decided to become vegetarian for many reasons, i had tought about in the past but never really had the balls to just do it until now :)

it has only been 2 weeks that im meat free but i do feel a bit better
im sad coz my mother [i live with my parents] doesnt seem to like the idea that much i really dont know why she is so against it and every time i make new vegetarian meals whe wont even taste them ... [ok they dont always come out good but still]
the worst part is that she has health problems and i believe that a vegetarian diet could do wonders for her, but if she wont try it its her own problem.

well, thanks for reading
