Mmm Mmm Good

Living in a building full of old people has really started to make us act like them. We sleep in and then either spend our day at the pool or the beach (today was the pool, and we attempted to play tennis first, but that's rare), then make lunch, take a nap or watch tv (cops!) read (I'm currently on "Tuesdays with Morrie" by Mitch Albom), eat an early dinner, play a rousing game of yahtzee (I'm not kidding), eat ice cream and fall asleep in front of the TV. It's so boring and so fabulous. We need friends or jobs.

Anyways, one of the things that we have really enjoyed doing since we've been here (besides becoming ping pong champs) is cooking and our current favorite is "1 Bag, 5 Dinners." The recipes are put together by Kraft and they are awesome. We actually tried this a few times in college, but it is much easier now that we have our own kitchen with working appliances (usually) and no roommates to share with.

Basically, the premise is that you choose a weekly menu and then you can fit all of the ingredients for the whole week in 1 bag. Of course, they recommend that you buy all Kraft products (shocking) and Friday is always pizza but we just get whatever's on sale at the store. None of the recipes take more than about 30 minutes to make (...because time is a huge issue for us...) and since all of the recipes are for 4 people, we have lots of leftovers so we actually have a lot more than 5 dinners.

This week we did one of the Chicken & Beef bags, but our days are all backwards so tomorrow night we will finish it off with Bruschetta Chicken Bake, which we are pretty pumped about because everything else has been soooooo good.

We're turning into little chefs. A la cuisine!
