I cook and bake things. Good things. From scratch. I use whole wheat flour, sugar alternatives, fresh vegetables, a lot of organic ingredients - basically the pinnacle of uber-healthy, balanced meals, except that they have to taste good enough to entice me to make them, and feed my Burger King-loving boyfriend too. I've whipped up everything from banana oat peanut bread to steak fajitas to vegetable pizza to roulette-ingredient stir-fry (I think my only failure has been quinoa adzuki bean cranberry almond porridge. Don't try that.) My specialties are vegetarian fare - though I'm not one - and bread. Lots of bread.
My friends say, "You should open a restaurant!", and I got to thinking. I live downtown. I have a large bike basket. I can easily cook enough for 3 people, plus myself. I love it when people try my food. I often nag everyone to eat healthier. I need to get out more... plus get better about taking care of my blood sugar during the day. So here's the pitch.
Would anyone be interested in sort of a "lunchpool" a couple days a week? Maybe something like
Given, I'm not a restaurant - it's homemade and you have to trust that I won't give you salmonella. But I'm a damn fine cook and haven't poisoned myself to date. I've delivered spider plants to DamnPortlanders before, and I think this would be a hoot. Is anyone into this idea? Are there any variations or other opportunities I missed? Who wants to sign up? I'm due to bake a fresh batch of bread today...
