Boredom meals during quarantine

By: Max and Thomas

Hopefully we all have been staying home and staying safe during this Coronavirus craziness! I don’t know about you, but boredom does not suit me well, so I have been attempting to learn some new skills while I am locked up at home. After little success with painting, I decided to try something that the rest of my family could do very well: cooking. Unfortunately, the extent of my cooking experience entailed toaster waffles and microwaved oatmeal, so I needed some help from the internet. Throughout the last two and half months I have been practicing some very simple recipes that I think could inspire some of you to start cooking! So from one amature chef to another, here are three easy recipes to help make quarantine fun.

Breakfast: American Style Omelette – The omelette has unlimited potential for flavour and can be a quick and easy meal to make.


  • 2-3 Eggs
  • Butter
  • Cheese
  • Optional Toppings: Onions, Bacon, Ham, Peppers, Tomatoes


  1. Crack 3 (or 2) eggs into a bowl and whisk thoroughly until the texture is the same throughout
  2. Add a pinch of salt and 3 drops of cold water
  3. Turn pan onto low heat and add small scoop of butter
  4. Wait until butter melts and then add all eggs
  5. After 1-2 minutes, add cheese and continue adding toppings if wanted
  6. Wait until edges begin to firm and when lifted from pan it stays together
    1. The top of the omelette should be soft, but no liquid. The bottom should be yellow with some crispy brown spots
  7. Fold omelette in half by flipping one side onto the other
  8. Leave in the pan for 1 minute. 
  9. Serve directly onto the plate and enjoy!

Lunch: Bacon Lettuce and Tomato Sandwich (BLTs) – The BLT is an easy meal that tastes amazing and is best when there is some left over bacon from breakfast!


  • White or Wheat bread (normal cut loaf)
  • Lettuce
  • Tomatoes (large, not cherry tomatoes)
  • Bacon
  • Butter & Mayo


  1. Toast bread until golden (depends on how crispy you would like your bread, I like it soft, so I don’t toast it as long)
  2. Butter both slices of bread
  3. Add mayo if you want
  4. Layer toppings
    1. Lettuce on the bottom, tomato in the middle and bacon on the top
  5. Cut sandwich diagonally and enjoy!

Dinner: Cobb Salad Variation – The Cobb Salad is a classic meal which gives you everything you need in one meal, but if you mix it up a little, it can turn into a fun, easy meal that can change every time you make it!


  • Lettuce – Romaine, Iceberg, any type you want
  • Dressing – Any type
  • Optional Toppings: Boiled Egg, Chicken, Bacon, Croutons, Cheese (shredded mozzarella, goat, blue, feta), Avocado, Tomato


  1. Boil eggs (if wanted)
  2. Wash Lettuce
  3. Place into bowl – the bowl becomes the mixing bowl for the salad
  4. One ingredient at a time, throw them into the bowl
  5. Dress the salad with prefered dressing
  6. Place a plate or flat object on top of bowl and shake thoroughly
  7. Make some changes every time you make it and perfect it as you go!
