The first time I made Forrest dinner at my apartment, I really wanted to impress him.
So, I turned to my favorite recipe that I thought was rather elegant…but that was so easy, there was no way I could mess it up!
Everything went off without a hitch, and I thought everything turned out well. Forrest seemed to enjoy it, so I deemed it a success! I was sure I impressed Forrest, and that he would forever be won over by my culinary talents.
Don’t ask me why, but I didn’t cook anything else for him awhile.
Apparently long enough for him to think that was the only thing I knew how to make.
Fortunately, I think I’ve redeemed myself over time, and he now knows that I do know how to make more than apricot chicken!
But even if this was the only thing I knew how to make, at least it tastes good. Actually, it tastes amazing. And it’s so, so easy. It’s perfect for the beginning cook (but anyone can really enjoy it!)
