Ok, so this cute girl at the school I go to suggested I have her over for dinner (we live in dorms right next to eachother, and people hang out together quite often). Now, I’m not going nuts over this, but I do want to cook something nice, because I enjoy cooking, good food, and the loosening up that good food can assist.
No, there will not be alcohol. I don’t drink. Or a hot tub; I don’t have one, sadly.
I don’t have an oven, only a microwave and an electric cooking plate which makes do for a stovetop. But I have pots and pans, as well as plenty of cooking stuff (olive oil, garlic, etc). I also have access to a stovetop in the communal kitchen, but it’s… pretty filthy. So I prefer not to use it unless I have to, since the cooking plate works fine for one thing at a time.
What I was thinking of was dark meat (in Hebrew it’s called pargiyot) marinated (I have a friend with a great recipe which I can get) and then fried on the pan. But I’ve already done that, so I’m looking for new suggestions.
I was also thinking of some stir-fried chicken and noodles with vegetables, which has the advantage of being cheaper (meat is really expensive in Israel, especially pargiyot) and something with greens. But I’ve already done that, too!
We’re both Jewish, and though I don’t keep kosher, she doesn’t mix milk and meat, much less eat shellfish or pork. So nothing with milk and meat mixed, no shellfish or pork. Also, I don’t like fish.
Also taking suggestions for dessert. I was thinking brownies… thoughts?
