Being a self-catered student.

One thing that’s been new for me this year is making my own meals for myself.Last year I had my mid-day and evening meals made for me by the Edge Hill University catering staff (I did my own thing at breakfast time), but this year all of my daily meals have been down to me and it’s something I’ve enjoyed getting used to. Some of the things I like to cook for myself (and have gotten good at) include

  • Chili Con Carnie
  • Spaghetti Bolognaise (although I tend to serve it with penne pasta rather than spaghetti)
  • Jacket potato
  • Scrambled eggs
  • Poached Eggs
  • Spicy tomato chicken (this is a recipe I’ve modified from a cook book I own)
  • Stir Fry (something I started learning to cook before the Easter break)

Whilst it can be tempting and easier to opt for takeaways and/or ready meals, it is far healthier for me to do my own thing and this is a skill which will be useful throughout the rest of my life. If anyone would like any cooking tips or recipes then feel free to comment below 🙂
