Resolved a thought to my satisfaction yesterday, which is that part of the reason I'm getting a little annoyed with my frosh for how they're treating the suite and the kitchen and things is that to me, this is my home for the next six months. The longest I'm going to be not here, until December, will be the nine days in August where I'm going home. They're just living here for a few weeks until their summer thing is done with. Of course they don't care about getting kitchen stuff, or wiping off counters, or making the living room be nice. This isn't the kind of space that they would put that kind of care into.

Also, they're frosh.

In other news, [livejournal.com profile] sakecake and I made dinner yesterday, and it was and continues to be delicious. I have decided that I'm going to write down stuff about food, so that I can record the ongoing process of learning to feed myself in ways that do not solely involve copious amounts of pancakes.

Dinner was a vaguely Indian stew-chili thing. One of [livejournal.com profile] sakecake's suitemates left behind a couple of jars of Trader Joe's masala sauce, and after a trial run with it we decided that it would be a tasty stew base. Also there was corn bread.

Things involved in stew thing:
- one green bell pepper
- two smalling yellow onions
- a couple of carrots
- four red potatoes
- can of pinto beans
- can of kidney beans
- jar of masala sauce

What we did:
First we sautéed the pepper and onions. I would like to note at this point that Firefox's dictionary includes "sautéed" with the little accent, and not without. Then diced carrots and potatoes for a while, then beans. I think a can of water went in at that point also. Shortly thereafter, the sauce went in with another jarful of water. Covered the pot, let it simmer while the cornbread baked and [livejournal.com profile] sakecake did dishes. I didn't even ask, she just did them!

I don't have a recipe for the cornbread (... *puppy eyes*?), but it was quite tasty in the stew chili thing.

Total time involved:
Maybe an hour and a halfish? Cornbread could have been timed a little better, but we thought it was done -- it looked all pretty on top, and then sunk when pierced by cold steel.

Would be dinner for fourish. It was dinner for us two, and now dinner for me, and there's probably one or two more servings in there.
