It is a learning process

Everyone says you learn from your mistakes but sometimes I wonder how many mistakes I can make in the kitchen before I get it right and don't have to put a cooking utensil on my shopping list.  I've talked about my cooking blunders before and I still keep making them.

I'm living in a townhouse this year and I'm cooking basically all my meals on my own. I've done a few microwavable dishes for the nights I'm running around crazy but I've also done a little experimenting.  Some things which I've made successfully are cheese burgers, macaroni and cheese, chicken, and ice cream sundaes.  However when you leave me in the kitchen too long I do things such as break a corkscrew, disfigure an ice cream scooper, and melt my Rubbermaid to the stove top.

My roommates have started decorating a wall with pictures and descriptions called "What Not to Do in a Townhouse:  Experiences by Maura."  They've expended it from beyond the kitchen when they realized I'm learning elsewhere in life.  Some other instances on the wall are getting hit in the face with a bag of chips and having tie-dye explode on me.

They say college is a place for learning in and outside of the classroom.  I have to say in my 3 full years and the start of this fourth, I definitely am learning a lot and I'm having fun in the process.
