While I was in New Zealand I learned to cook. I would say that cooking is one area where I lack knowledge and skills and I would rather go and buy a burger (or get one from work) than I would cook a meal. I knew the basics like pasta and soup and I could make a sandwich and pizza and could barbecue but cooking was not something I did a lot of.
While in New Zealand I learned to cook:
- Corned Beef
- Pumpkin soup
- Fruit salads
- Lamb – although I didn’t actually cook lamb
- Omelette – some type that I don’t know the name of
It was a great learning experience and I wish I had taken some pictures and that I had written down the recipes. I don’t know if I’ll cook every night now that I am back in Canada and am still living at home but I am definitely going to stop eating fast food everyday!
