Me & My Muse – Day 2382: Now We’re Cooking!

When you reach the end of a busy work day, there’s nothing like cooking a fresh meal.

For me, I like to draw my inspiration from Ignis, a spectacled character from Final Fantasy XV who cooked various dishes for Noctis, the prince of Lucis.  Although quiet and reserved, Ignis was proficient at preparing delectable dishes for the Lucian heir to the throne.  His approach was precise, always devising new ways and ideas for any dish he could improve upon in the future.

So effective immediately, I am assuming the Ignis role at my apartment.  Although my cooking skill is not even close to what he can do, this is something that I will work on, and “level up” over time.  My brother will be the Noctis when he moves in.  I guess it’s only fitting (after all, Ryan means “little king”).

What’s on the menu tonight?  A parmesan mozzarella rotini meatball pasta with green beans.  It’s not much, but a perfect starting point for a novice.  I want to get the basics down in cooking the noodles (and of course not overcooking them.  There is a balance in this whole process…)

And of course, the goal of every recipe would be to improve upon it the next time that I make it.  Who knows?  Perhaps I may substitute the meatballs and make shrimp meatballs from Italian bread crumbs.  How would a spaghetti and shrimp meatballs sound?  The possibilities are endless!

Anyway, I will start cooking my meal and I’ll let you know how it turns out.

Today’s high is going to be 34 degrees and the silver lining is cooking a fresh meal at my apartment.

To those of you who like to cook masterpieces, I hope that you all have a fantastic day.


Muse:  That spaghetti and shrimp meatballs sounds good!  I think I’ll be making that tonight!  Time to gather the ingredients…
