cooked apples

anonymous asked:

This year I'm moving into a school owned apartment on my school's campus, but the kitchenette only has a microwave. I'm kind of having a hard time looking for ways that I can cook myself more meals than just the frozen stuff at the grocery store and I wondered if you had some advice ?

Check out your college’s student handbook, and see if they allow any of the following cooking appliances. These can get expensive, but are well worth the money and will give you more dining options:

I would also recommend you get some cooking supplies like this set sold on Amazon. There’s also this microwave cooking set. I’ve scoured the Internet and found you the following recipes.

Revenge is a dish best served... with apples

Slytherin: “Dude, why are you so nice to people who are mean to you?”

Hufflepuff: “and just how exactly am I supposed to respond?”

Slytherin: “You plot revenge!”

Gryffindor: “Challenge their honor and duel or engage in another act of daring!”

Ravenclaw: “Outwit them and show them you are superior.”

Slytherin: “And you especially don’t bake them treats!”

Gryffindor: “I don’t know, I’ve had her cooking. That might be revenge.”

Slytherin: “But the apple turnover I saw her give Gregg after he trash talked her this morning looked delicious.”

Hufflepuff: “Well I know I’m not the greatest cook… unless it involves apples.”

*Pause*

Hufflepuff: “”Food for thought.” *walks away with a gleam in her eyes*

Ravenclaw: “Did.. did she do.. what I think she did”

Gryfindor: “no… no… really?”

Slytherin: *cackling* “Guys, if we hurry we can tell him to share it with all his cronies. Come on! They’ll be out for weeks if I know Regina’s potion skills! ”
