Since we’re in temporary housing, I’ve been trying to keep our cooking pretty simple for a couple of reasons. For starters, we only have the most basic cooking tools. Right now the goal is make it through the next three weeks or so without doing two things. One, buy anything that packed in a box waiting in storage. Two, stock our kitchen with any perishables that aren’t necessary for basic meals.This severely limits what we are able to cook. Now, I’m not accustomed to making elaborate meals, but I’ve grown habituated to having a fully stocked kitchen and the ability to experiment with the occasionally new recipe.
Last night, I came across this Lifehacker post on 10 Tips and Tricks for Better Coffee and decided to give cold-pressed coffee a try. I thought it would be an easy way to switch things up a little. It really couldn’t be easier, the article tells you to add 1 cup of grounds to 4 1/2 cups of water and put everything in the fridge for 12 hours. Easy enough, and as it turns out, this process makes great coffee for anyone (like me) who prefers a more mellow and less acidic type of coffee.
