2. Dinner: Mild Italian sausage and baked potato
We're back to CookOrDie, folks! For those of you just tuning in, CookOrDie is my (so far non-fatal) attempt to learn how to cook by, well, forcing myself to eat the results of my experiments. Not a bad way to learn how to cook, mind you, and it certainly makes evenings interesting.
Today I went back to one of my CookOrDie staples. Sausages tend to be cheaper and easier to split into small portions than other sources of meat, and potatoes are a staple for cheap, easy-to-prepare carbohydrates. You can't beat the ease of microwaving a potato, and potatoes are hard to overcook!
I pricked two potatoes with a fork, smeared them with oil and microwaved them for four minutes, then turned them and microwaved them for another three.
Kathy usually boils her sausages, so I gave that a whirl. I took it out prematurely, though. Fortunately I sliced it open before popping it into my mouth--the core was still red! Silly me had already poured the previous contents of the pot down the drain, so I slipped the sausages into a fresh pot of water and set them boiling.
I then followed the package directions (panfry for 20-25 minutes, turning occasionally) for another two sausages for tomorrow's lunch. I carefully resisted the temptation to slice them open. =) They looked pretty good (or at least cooked, which is _very_ important). I munched on one piece to check for done-ness and taste.
Here's how dinner was originally prepared:
|2 pieces Italian sausage||1.10|
Total: CAD 1.56
I might be able to make do with one sausage and one potato next time, which gives me a total cost of CAD 0.78.
