I cooked tonight! Like, legitimately cooked. I bought shrimp scampi, and I wanted to cook it in the oven, but I couldn't find an oven-safe container to put it in. So, I went with sauteing it on the top of the stove. I melted a teaspoonful of butter in the pan, dumped in 7 or 8 shrimp, and let it cook for about 8 minutes. There were a couple of things about it - 1. All I could think of was the "Chopped" judges berating the cooks for not seasoning enough, so I made sure there was plenty of (garlic) salt and pepper on the food. 2. I have no idea how to tell if the shrimp was done. It seemed okay, and I'm considering this a cooking victory.
And that's all I got for tonight.
