Cooking with others is a bonding exercise, so if you want to create stronger bonds with your sorority sisters, this is a wonderful idea. But what should you make? Just start off with easy recipes that everyone will love. You and your sorority sisters will have a great time making these five easy and tasty recipes this week or weekend.
Guacamole and Chips
Who doesn’t like guacamole? It doesn’t take that long to make a fresh, healthy batch of guacamole with your sorority sisters. All you need is about five ingredients: a few avocados, an onion (preferably white), a lime, Himalayan pink salt, and a tomato if you prefer. Get the juice out of the lime, chop everything else up finely and mash everything together with a fork. Make sure you give everyone a task to complete perfectly. Pick your favorite chips for dipping and have a fun movie night with your sorority sisters.
Pasta with tomato sauce. It is so delicious and so simple to make. You can make it from scratch with a can of crushed or diced tomatoes, garlic powder, and an Italian seasoning mix. Or you can buy a couple of jars of tomato sauce from the supermarket that has all of the best ingredients.
Add a little ground turkey or beef in the pot with olive oil first and cook it until it’s browned. Then add your sauce and seasonings. Let it all simmer for an hour or so. Boil enough pasta to feed everyone and cook it about 10 minutes until it’s al dente (done, but not too soft). While you wait, turn on some tunes so that you and your sorority sisters can dance, have some fun, and work up an appetite before dinner.
The great thing about this easy meal is that you don’t have to add meat if you are going vegetarian or vegan. Or you can make one pot with meat and one without. Enjoy!
A Big Pot of Chicken Noodle Soup
On a cold fall or winter night, there is nothing like a bowl of hot chicken noodle soup. Make it from scratch with your sorority sisters.
First chop up a few chicken breasts and let the chicken fry in olive oil in a large pot. Pour in water and low sodium vegetable broth, which only costs about $2-$3 per box. Add salt, pepper, garlic, turmeric (if you have it) and let it simmer on medium heat for about an hour. After that, add some egg noodles which you can find at the supermarket for about $2 as well. Organic rice noodles are also great.
The pot of chicken noodle soup will be ready after about 10 more minutes. Serve it up in bowls and sit together in your living room or dorm bedroom. Wrap yourself up with your favorite sorority blankets or a warm Greek hoodie sweatshirt and have a nice chat with your sisters.
Quick Breakfast: Eggs and Bacon
You don’t always have to pull out a frying pan to make eggs and bacon for breakfast. If you have an air fryer at your sorority house which only costs about $50, you can just put the bacon in there to cook.
So, wake up early with your sorority sisters and start making a quick air fryer and microwave breakfast for everyone.
Cut the bacon in half and put it in the air fryer for about 10-15 minutes on 350 (watch it closely). Meanwhile, crack a few eggs into a microwave safe bowl, mix it up with some salt and pepper, cover with a napkin and put it in the microwave for about 1-2 minutes. Easy and quick breakfast before you head to class.
The Love Pizza
A sorority is about bonding, making compromises, and getting along. One way that you can increase your bond is to create a love pizza.
You can buy pizza dough at your local supermarket for about $2. You can also buy good dough from your local pizza restaurant. Grab some flour and the dough and start forming it into a heart shape with your fists and hands. Use a roller pin to flatten it. Add tomato sauce, cheese, and preheat your oven on about 350.
An important part of making a love pizza is ensuring that everyone’s desires and needs are met in the pie. So, make sure that everyone has their specific toppings in various places on the pizza pie.
Aren’t you excited to try these five recipes with your sorority sisters this week? You can make this a regular thing, and everyone will enjoy the time you’ll be spending together. So time to make a quick trip to your local grocery store and get to work!
