(This was written before the box arrived, so apologies for any confusion caused by the change in ingredients.)
I have no idea what to cook today. The ingredients we have left are the nappa cabbage, kale, potatos, onions, eggs, and flesh, but we can’t think of any dishes that we can make with these foods. I was planning on making some asian thing with the cabbage, but our leftover ginger had mysteriously disappeared, so that was that. There’s probably some dish out there that contains these ingredients, but, being college students with little cooking skills, we (me, Roommate S, and Friend A) didn’t know any. So we are stumped. Thankfully, The Other Friend A, who actually knows how to cook, happens to stop by while we were standing around and doing nothing. “Oh man, you should make omeletes! Kale is delicious in omeletes.” So omeletes it is! Omeletes are great. All you do is dump all of your food together on top of a fried egg and eat it. There’s no need ot worry about seasoning or cooking time. It’s the laziest food ever. Also, the C-Store sells eggs, so I can spend my infinite dbal! Too bad that none of us actually know how to make omeletes.
How to Cook Omeletes (probably)
Obtain eggs and things to put in omeletes.
Turn things to put in omelets into small pieces.
Heat things in pan until GOOD ENOUGH.
So it turns out that omelets are actually kind of hard to make. It’d probably help if we tried to pile less stuffing onto the egg before we tried to omlete-ify it, but it can’t be helped.
Suddenly, Friend L showes up out of nowhere and decides to try her hand at making an omelete. Using the power of duelweilding spatulas, she manages to create the perfect omelete despite having no prior omelete cooking skills!
The finished product:
I guess the moral of this story is: even if you don’t know how to cook, you can still make food.
(The omelets were delicious.)
Now, based on the title you may be wondering what kind of story this will be. As you will soon find out, it’s a story of adventure born out of the pure, dark chaos that fills the minds of sleep deprived Caltech undergrads.
I’m starting a new miniseries on the blog – Film Club! Each episode, I’ll share a short clip from a popular piece of media, and then completely dissect and overanalyze it, because let’s face it, I’m doing it in my head already anyway. You say “buzzkill.” I say “science.” We’ll kick things off with a clip from Gravity Falls I discussed a bit in my previous post: Season 2 Episode 12, A Tale of Two Stans. If somehow you haven’t watched this show yet (?!)… spoilers incoming!
It’s crazy to think that I began applying to college almost three years ago. I still remember spending hours looking at college websites, admissions blogs and reddit pages to try to get a sense of what college is ACTUALLY like. To help you get through these stressful times, here are a few tips that I wish I had listened to. Hopefully, these will ease your worries and maybe even make the process more enjoyable!?
