I cooked again!

The other thing I cooked was calzones. Here are all the ingredients laid out (sorry the picture is sideways):

I made the sauce and the fillings:

I think that avocado is hiding underneath the bowl:

Mixing the fillings:

The dough came pre-made, but I did have to separate it into three pieces:

The extremely even three pieces:

I didn't do a great job getting them closed with no holes:

They exploded a little in the oven, but they still look delicious:

And here's the final presentation, with the extra sauce for dipping:

Delicious! So I cooked twice, if you can even believe it!

I cooked!

In the first week of January, we got a free week of food from Blue Apron from a friend. I cooked 2 of the meals, and here's the first one: cauliflower steaks. They send you all of the ingredients, and here they are, all laid out nicely:

Here is some evidence that it was actually me cooking:

Partway through, the greens all looked nice:

Cauliflowers turn out to be very pretty, like trees, when you slice them vertically:

The range of colors of scallions (sorry, I don't think there's a way to rotate the picture in Blogger):

In prep bowls, so fancy:

Making the coconut curry sauce:

The fanciest part of all was the black rice, which was really cool and very tasty:

Adding the lime zest:

Making the individual servings:

A close-up before toppings:

The process of adding toppings, observed by a skeptical friend:

The final product:

It was delicious! We've even made it again since then, and it wasn't easy because we had to find somewhere to buy black rice. Mmmmm!
