I am not a good cook. But I have recently been watching the Food Network, and sometimes I think that maybe I can make delicious things.
Recently, I made hummus from Alton Brown’s foolproof recipe, dry garbanzo beans, a couple of lemons, a palm of salt, thirty seconds of drizzling oil, a glop of tahini, and M’s fancy food processor.
It wasn’t horrible. But I wasn’t sure it was tasty enough for me to stop buying it already made until I saw how quickly it grew this thick, gray field of mold.
I am not even good at storing bland, boiled beans for more than five days.
