Today, I am introducing a brand-new feature onto the bustling pages of Hermitina: Lazybum Recipes!
What is a Lazybum Recipe? Well, you see, I always intend quite seriously to cook elaborate dinners every night, which would include white truffle oil, saffron, lemongrass, and sunflower butter. However, I don’t know how to cook that well, and I lack time and momentum, so Real Fancy Cooking hardly ever happens, despite all my earnest bookmarking of interesting recipes.
As you can tell from my continued typing, I have not died of malnutrition. While this is partly due to having easy access to grocery stores with tasty pre-made meals, it is helped along by a handful of disgustingly simple things I like to make/cook, which also happen to be passingly nutritious. These are the famous Lazybum Recipes.
Lazybum Recipes tend to have less than eight ingredients, and they often involve ingredients that can be used up all in one go, to avoid having rutabaga slivers or 1/8 of a carton of buttermilk sitting around in the fridge for weeks after the cooking is done. When I was 10, my stabs at gourmet cooking centered on bread-and-butter balls and microwaved satsuma mandarins; my tastes have evolved since then, but barely.
Questions? Comments? The first in the series will go live later this week, and more will follow as I get inspired. I trust they will be deeply educational.
