It happened again last night. I twittered my dinner (I often twitter what I've prepared for myself) and got the above reply.
Now, I am not a fancy cook.
I prepare fairly simple, plain fare with fresh ingredients.
The meal that got the response above? Trader Joe's (thawed) frozen scallops cooked in butter/olive oil with a squeeze of lemon juice at the end of the cooking. Heirloom tomatoes sliced along side. And a small amount of farfalle afterward to soak up the sauce.
A meal that took about 10 minutes to prepare and not much more time to plan.
Other meals that have gotten comments?
- Irish oatmeal with strawberries.
- Vegetables, coated with olive oil, grilled, then splashed with balsamic vinegar.
- A salad of mixed greens, 5 strawberries, deli turkey breast dressed with (guess now..) olive oil and balsamic vinegar.
- Left over grilled veggies warmed in chicken stock and coconut milk and served over brown rice.
Everything fresh and healthy, but simple still.
So I wonder, why do I get these comments? Is simple cooking so rare these days that simply reporting it is remarkable? Are my food combinations so unusual? Is that I cook at all, instead of relying on take out and dine in?
You tell me.
