Parting words of wisdom.

If anyone ever asked me about my cooking process (which no one ever has, so consider this a bonus), I think I’d explain it like this:

  1. Start cooking a grain.
  2. Stand in front of the refrigerator.
  3. Find quick-cooking proteins that are or used to be beans.
  4. Look for vegetables justthisclose to going bad.
  5. Heat some oil in a skillet.
  6. Add garlic to it. No matter what.
  7. Chop vegetables. Put them in the skillet.
  8. Add enough ground cumin that everything gets a little bit brown and there’s cumin crust in the pan.
  9. Add the protein(s).
  10. Stir. Add more cumin. Let it cook until it looks kind of gross.
  11. Put the cooked grains in a bowl. Scoop some of the vegetable mixture on top.
  12. Add cheese.
  13. And maybe salsa.
  14. Eat dessert.
  15. Play Boggle.
  16. Go on vacation.
