Weston is heading back to WVU to pick up a couple of classes in the first summer session (then home for the rest of the summer). With his first two semesters behind him, he’s no longer required to live in the dorm. He will be sharing an apartment with his roommate from the dorm (and high school best friend), though he’ll be up there alone this summer. He didn’t really take to dorm cafeteria food, and now he’ll be on his own for cooking. I’m giving him a crash cooking course this week, helping him practice a few easy recipes that will serve him for several days at a time. Tonight, he made Spicy Lentil Sauce. Tomorrow, we’re going to work on making a big pot of pinto beans (from dry), and then for the next couple days after that, all the things to do with a big pot of beans.
