Cooking 101

So we are doing Blue Apron

And it’s pretty fantastic. 

I don’t know why I’m telling you this.You probably already know. 

Our first meal was of course 

Something very easy. 

Salmon…or was it tilapia? 

It was salmon 

And quinoa salad
Now if you are unfamiliar 

With the quinoa …


Is like …essentially …


But worse. 

It just gets all over everything 

It’s small 

And it’s healthy 

And grainy 

So if you are ever hungry 

And want to eat an entire harvest of a thing 

Go get quinoa 

It’s also surprisingly difficult to deal with 

Surprising because it doesn’t do anything 

It just sits there 

Being itself 

It’s not alive 

It’s not in a shell 

Like lobster 

All you are required to do 

Is be sanitary with it 

wash it 

And boil it


we really had no idea how to strain it. 

Because it’s so small. 

And I thought cheese cloth would be a great idea. 

If we had cheese cloth. 

So finally 

I decided 

To just use a coffee filter 

Because it strains coffee 

And quinoa is a lot like coffee 

Only healthier I’m sure.

Although it can’t make me get out of bed in the morning. I’ll tell you that. 

In the end 

Blue apron is great 

It comes in boxes 

And it’s like Christmas 

But in a very caveman way 

Because it’s food 

And quinoa salad is swell 

And delicious 

But a pain to have to handle 

But probably not as bad as squid.

Because if they ever send a box with squid I just don’t think I could handle that.
