So ya... this is my third day in PEI or as the locals like to call it: ``the island``. It has been pretty sweet so far. My legs hurt from walking but that`s okay. Getting to work is a bit of a walk but walking home is always the longest because work drains you... even tho i didn`t get much work today... we`re still waiting on computers but everyone there is pretty cool... nothing much to say.
I`ve never really had to worry about what I`ll be eating for dinner up until now. It kinda sux to have to worry about food. It kinda sucks not having a car.... It also kinda sucks to have to go to the groceries... on foot... and then walk back with the groceries... D:
Life lessons are great tho... i haven`t had to worry about anything like this before and it`s quite an eye opener. of course, i could just eat dinner outside every night but that defeats the whole purpose of being in PEI... doesn`t it.
I was looking around the supermarket for stuff to cook... but not just random stuff... i of course looked on the trusty internet for recipes and decided after having just 2 slices of bread with peanut butter the night before that i had to have something a little more satisfying to my belly. I decided to make fettucini alfredo! First i needed some ingredients tho...
Who would`ve known that parmesan was so rare and expensive.... especially when you get it in block form. I decided to go with grated version which cost significantly less so it wasn`t too bad. Getting the hang of the supermarket was kinda weird as i didn`t know where anything was so i ended up going around the whole place several times before i could even find some butter which was tucked in the corner somewhere. I was pleasantly surprised to see so many asian people at the supermarket. I mean even if i count 10 asian people as a lot it doesn`t matter... that`s a lot! I ended up getting wayyyyy too many things from the supermarket and i had to carry it home... my arms were dead... quite dead.... I haven`t had to worry about how much stuff i got from the market before... D:
By the time I got home it was already 8 oclock or so and i was starving to death... so i decided to try out my recipe... after much work and awesome improvisation by me... (i added mushrooms and milk and lime) I had a meal ready to go! of course i didn`t realize it took so long to boil water... and by the time everything was done it was almost 9:30 which was kinda sad... but considering it was my first ever cooked meal... it may not be so bad after all! I took note of this achievement and kept a record of my awesome creation via webcam! (my lost luggage has my effing camera batteries)
and there is my pride and joy.... see i bought milk as well... effing heavy... i had 4 frigging bags worth of groceries! poor arms of mine... anyhoo just to add extra proof:
it was quite a lot... i have left overs too... i think i`ll try making chicken alfredo... yummmm... i bought a crap load of chicken as well! maybe fried chicken! Next time i make alfredo i`ll turn down the heat a bit and not cook it for so long... the sauce was a little too thick. Life lessons are awesome... i`m a little more appreciative for the meals that are prepared for me... it`s quite a chore.... next time i`ll set my pot of water to boil before anything else since it takes surprisingly long....
I swear i`ll have some drawings this week... i promise! and some more pictures of course... maybe drawings tomorrow! since i have left over alfredo for dinner tomorrow and i won`t be so lost in the supermarket... i think i`m gonna buy some juice and something... i can`t remember what it was now... but something... anyhoo... i better sleep i was so sleepy at work today... and it seems i`m only gonna be sleeping a half hour earlier than yesterday D:
