Heres how to cook it: In a pot bring to a boil the vinegar, water, garlic, salt, bayleaves, black pepper. Add the cut up meat and bring to a boil. Lower the heat and simmer covered for 30mins. Add the soysauce and cook in additional 10mins. :)

Soups are cool by me, I like them ^^ The only problem I got with them is WHAT to cook together, cause the procedure is pretty easy as you've stated. Thanks for the tips, I'll try to make a soup myself, one of these days.

all I can really suggest is for you to invest in a lot of hamburger helper..all you need with that is ground beef..the instructions are on the back and really easy..also, you can get breaded chicken patties, spaghetti sauce, and mozzerellla cheese..thats pretty good..you just heat the patties, add the sauce, and melt the cheese over it...it can either be a sandwich or just eat it alone..

I'll get that on the "Cooking level 2" for now. It takes some different steps so I'll be a little more careful while cooking that one. Thanks again, Izzie! You're helping a lot ^^

One really easy recipe I know is for a quiche slice and it's good for using up the ends of loaves of bread or even stale bread. Grease a baking dish (whatever size you like) Line the bottom with bread (instead of pastry) Sprinkle a topping onto the bread so it is evenly covered. I've used chicken and asparagus, bacon and mushroom, mixed vegetables, ham and tomato or whatever you like. Mix eggs and milk together like you would for scrambled eggs Pour the egg mixture over the topping, covering it all Cover it with cheese and bake in a moderate oven for about half an hour or until it is firm. This tastes good hot or cold.

This is really easy, and you can get several meals out of it: Throw a lot of chicken pieces into a large casserole dish. Add a jar of Spaghetti Sauce, and make sure you put a lid on the dish to stop the moisture from evaporating. Bake at 350 degrees fahrenheit for at least 40 minutes (but it's fine to leave them in the oven for hours). You can then keep the dish in the fridge, and take a couple of pieces out as you need them. After a few days, if I still have pieces left, I freeze them in individual servings, so they won't go bad. You can then, 1) put them in a pita wrap with some veggies (chopped tomtoes, lettuce, cucumber) 2) reheat them on the stove top and throw on some spoonfuls of prepared sauce (I usually use an Indian or Thai sauce), and add some broccoli or other veggies 3) add other chopped veggies and melt some cheese on them 4) make quesadillas, by cutting up the chicken, adding chopped onions, tomatoes, and peppers and shredded cheese, putting them on tortilla bread, folding and baking in the oven at 350 for about 5 minutes. Good luck with your move.
