The hard part is over – but now what do I do? Where do I go? I cannot make it in the restaurant business, but I can improve my life through cooking – so I wanted to be healthy and save money with cooking.
I vowed to increase the frequency of my cooking. One thing that I did notice right off the bat is that I was still buying the same amount of food as before.
Focus on health – always been a big part of my life, so I wanted to include it in the presentation.
Going over average time it takes to prepare dinner.

Oh yes I did grow. Without even knowing it. I decided to make a calzone. This is the tastiest example of personal growth in the history of the world.
