The following was written by our 14 year old daughter. She was the kid least thrilled by the $20 cooking challenge, and was even less excited to write about her week. Mom’s note: despite her impressions of the week, she actually did as good a job as anyone. (Here’s her food list.)
The food I liked least was the chicken. I cooked it in the oven and I put thyme and other spices that I forgot. It tasted really bad.
I also made rice. In it I put onion, chicken and turmeric. It was ok. The hardest part was washing dishes. I don’t even know who made all those dirty dishes. Oh! I almost forgot– when I was cooking my rice I burned my onion so I had to change my pot. Tell me, who would do that? I had to spend 10 minutes washing the pot.
For my dessert I made cinnamon rolls. They were great, even though I was not in a good mood when I ate them. The most fun part was making ramen stir fry. In my stir fry I put onions, carrots, chicken and soy sauce. It was really good.
This week I learned that I need more like $100 than $20 a week so I can hire someone to cook for me because I am a bad cook. If I had more money I would hire my brothers to cook for me.
