To save money on the Columbia University dining plan this semester, Bossy’s son has been cooking many meals in the dorm kitchen, which is located down the hall from his room. This, a stir fry with chicken, garlic, onions, ginger, shallots, orange zest, broccoli, snow peas, water chestnuts, and carrots.

A dorm with a kitchen?!? That’s awesome. My dorm had no such thing…
Rachael saysSeptember 16, 2009 at 8:37 am
My dorm didn’t have a kitchen either…but that was eons ago! However, my son is currently living in dorms at Penn State…no kitchen to speak of (of course these are really nasty, old Freshman dorms). Like the dorm kitchen idea though…..

Is it wrong that Bossy’s son’s dorm food cooking is making my kids jealous? “Mom, why can’t you make that for dinner tonight?” “Pipe down — I’ve got important non-cooking things to do. Go to school.”

Wednesday’s were our pot lucks in the dorm kitchen.
Once the ladies find out that Bossy’s son is a gourmand, he will be all the rage…… oh…..the fun!!

A son raised right … now able to actually care for himself and cook good food!!!!
Bossy & Bossy’s DH done good!

Where is the Ramen??? That was dorm cooking when I was in college, 4325 years ago.

That looks slightly more nutritious and appetizing than the Kraft Mac and Cheese I always (and I mean always, unless it was a bologna sandwich) ate.

I’m very impressed by bossy’s son.
Amy saysSeptember 16, 2009 at 10:01 am
I didn’t even know what a shallot was when I was in college.
Jacquie saysSeptember 16, 2009 at 10:07 am
And, I can only assume, a tequilla marinade. It is college.

There’s a certain sausage dish that Bossy’s son should probably make if he wants to become famous around the Columbia campus!
Little Miss Sunshine State saysSeptember 16, 2009 at 10:17 am
He could take that bunch of veggies and throw it over a package of Ramen noodles.
chiquita saysSeptember 16, 2009 at 10:37 am
Yum! I tried to cook in my dorm (even though there was a kitchen) many, many years ago, and was told I had to be on the “dining plan.” Plan = gross, I’m going to eat cereal.
Reeb saysSeptember 16, 2009 at 10:52 am
I was sighing at the fall wholesomeness of that pan-full even before I knew who had cooked it!
Colette/4 is right about a guy being a cook being attractive to women. At least it worked for me. I proposed marriage to every man I met who could cook. Finally one man proposed back. To this day he cooks (salmon, anyone?) whenever we have company over.
Interesting way for Bossy Son to demonstrate to his mom he’s eating well. I”m betting she didn’t download this from his facebook.
Ungirdled Passion saysSeptember 16, 2009 at 11:06 am
IMPRESSIVE! You’ve raised him up good! We thought we were something else using a popcorn popper with oil when I was in school!
David saysSeptember 16, 2009 at 11:35 am
In my four years at school, except for the year in England, no dorms ever had kitchens. He is very lucky.
Jill saysSeptember 16, 2009 at 11:41 am
Hold the water chestnuts, I beg you.
Lisa saysSeptember 16, 2009 at 11:50 am
I better Bossy’s son had a lot of takers.
Melanie @ Mel, A Dramatic Mommy saysSeptember 16, 2009 at 12:33 pm
I made Hamburger Helper and Rice Krispie Treats. Not at the same time though. Bossy and Bossy’s husband should be really proud!
Kelly saysSeptember 16, 2009 at 2:13 pm
Awesome. My college student daughter has moved into an apartment with a kitchen but still doesn’t get much more adventurous than peanut butter and jelly sandwiches or cheese quesadillas.
L saysSeptember 16, 2009 at 2:40 pm
My stir fry never looked as good as Bossy’s sons. Send me the recipe.
La Suzette saysSeptember 16, 2009 at 3:21 pm
Wow, most impressive, Bossy and Bossy’s son. Agree, though, where’s the ramen?
Chesapeake Bay Woman saysSeptember 16, 2009 at 6:39 pm
I’m bringing the wine and will be there in five hours.
Ms. Cranky Pants saysSeptember 16, 2009 at 11:57 pm
Smart, good looking, has an adorable Great Dane, and he cooks fabulously healthy and delicious meals, too?! Bossy’s son is the real deal. *swoon*
