When I just arrived at this place, they cooked only for themselves as well as me. Because I only cooked for myself, I just made things like noodles soup with and vegetables in it. One day, I tried to fried some green vegetable( sorry I still don't know its name, I bought it only because it seemed easy to cook.) and overcooked it. Meanwhile, the living room was smoked. This historical dish looks like the following photo.
The room just downstair to ours is also lived by Taiwanese. When it comes to cooking, they have a good system. They bought every thing like rice, vegetables, meat all together in Wal-mart or meijer every one or two weeks. And then they take charge of each meal in turns individually. However, they don't use a list to decide whom to make which dish beforehand. Conversely, they use a blank list with calendar so that the one who make the meal some day can sign on it. It's a way to have elasticity as well as responsibility.
So, we followed them.
In the beginning, everyone took vast amount of time to prepare for a meal, like two hours. Even with a volunteer's help, it still took two hours. The resulting dishes is usually normal( or just simple). But after two weeks, as I said, one can finish a meal in one hour on his own. Meanwhile, the property is better. Today, Adrian made the dinner. He cooked one more dish by mistake(we usually have three dishes and one soup) so it turned out to be a especially plentiful dinner. It looks like the following.
In conclusion, I believe that the four of us will become more and more like professional chiefs.
