2. I am subletting over the summer (usually I live in Atlanta with my fiance and two cats, but this summer I am exiled in DC for research reasons), and am facing some issues because the person I am subletting from apparently isn't much of a cook, nor is her roommate, who is here for the summer. They don't have the weirdest things, like a good skillet, or cookie sheets. I honestly cannot imagine how you live without these things. The other night I cut the nail of my left middle finger trying to use a dull vegetable peeler (which I was shocked she had, considering uh, she doesn't even have a pot large enough to boil pasta in). I am a poor graduate student, and as such I really can't afford to revamp their kitchen. I've bought some spices, simply because hello, you can't cook without spices, and I can take those back to Atlanta with me. There is however no point in me buying a bunch of cookware that I'm going to use for 2 months total, and probably won't be able to get them to pay me back for, because they obviously DON'T cook, otherwise they would have bought these things themselves long ago (my roommate is the kind of person who all of her meals seem to come out of one of those freezer bags). Any suggestions? I've been just trying to make do, but trust me, after the vegetable peeler debacle, I am buying a new one, and am going to buy a knife sharpener too because their knives are ridiculously dull. I just have to suck that one up, and deal.
Thanks in advance for your help!!!
