College-Ready Cooks at the Boys Hope Home


By Darwyn H

Today I had the desire to cook, so I asked Lili if I could help her prepare dinner. We started off by making baked teriyaki chicken. She then showed me how to cook rice. Despite the fact that I have eaten rice my whole life, I had no idea how you cooked it! We learned that brown rice takes longer to cook than white rice. Adan saw me helping and asked to join in because he loves stir fry vegetables. He was so thrilled to cook and was ready to eat his portion of the dinner right there and then! Now that college is approaching, I want to make sure that I will be able to cook for myself. With these new skills I learned today I hope to survive college life by eating more than fast food and ramen!
