Social Distancing: Kitchen Edition

I took this shelter in place order as an opportunity to cook up all the things! I love making food, but unfortunately all too often find myself with a fridge filled with things that have spoiled because I haven’t gotten around to using it all, or being persuaded to eat out instead with my friends.

I grabbed some groceries and got started on my food journey. I started off slicing up an entire pineapple into bite-sized chunks for smoothies and snacking.

Later, I tried my hand at making caramelized onions, since I don’t care for raw ones. They turned out really well and perfectly sweet.

One day, I had a hankering for an upgraded chicken sandwich, so I gathered a yellow onion, mushrooms, coconut lime seasoning, sliced swiss cheese, a bolillo roll, and chicken breast. I caramelized my onions in the slow cooker with some sunflower oil early on in the day. Then, I pan-fried the mushrooms with garlic and salt and mixed them with the oily deliciousness of perfectly sweet onions.

Then, I sliced up some chicken, seasoned it with coconut lime powder and cooked it to perfection. I sliced a bolillo roll, added swiss cheese and then melted the cheese with the chicken and veggie mix.

It was amazing! Mmm! Here’s to cooking more delights until the shelter in place order wraps up. Stay safe, everone!
