I guess this isn't actually cuisine to me that involves someone who actually know what they're doing...
But I kinda find it a bit amusing that, apart from the fact that I'm rather unhealthy, doesn't get enough vegs and such, my diet is pretty close to that of the pros; pasta and chicken! Sometimes with salmon instead of chicken, sometimes, if I'm feeling really optimistic, I attempt to boil rice.

Take today. My dinner consisted of chicken over which I poured half a can of shredded (?) tomatoes, + a portion of pasta over which I poured the other half of that can. Of course I added some spice and stuff...
Oh, and the stuff about not getting enough vegs, let me just say; I've never done something like this (a can of tomatoes) before...

Luckily for my eating-variation I frequently eat other places as well.

BTW how do you cook pasta? Seems kind of a tricky thing with your skillset

Pasta is actually one of the few things I can do!
I fill a pot with water and when the water's boilling nice and hotly I add a boullion-block before putting in the pasta and lowering the heat. Then I just pretty much let it take care of itself until it's done.

Oh, and Krebs. You're supposed to put all of the pasta into the pot, don't let any of it stick out...

Where did you take the boullion cube idea from?
It's slightly odd unless you prepare tortellini or ravioli, or some other kind of broth pasta.
