Yesterday, we said goodbye and good luck to another of our interns. It is weird to me how they keep going and I keep staying. Every day he ate the same lunch from Lean Cuisine, salisbury steak and mac & cheese. Each time there is a birthday or special event and I’m told in advance, I make a treat for that person. This intern originally asked for steak and I said he was crazy. Then he asked for an ice cream cake. I don’t like to half-ass my cooking or baking and I quickly learned ice cream cake required more equipment then I own. Back to steak. Lucky for me it turns out this is such a breeze to make! No where NEAR healthy, but everyone who tried it was completely in love with their lunch.
What you need:
