First, a confession. Last night about 9pm, I was really hungry and I ate the rest of the potato soup. I may regret that later in the week. Then today, between breakfast and lunch, when my meeting let out, I was really hungry. I bought a bag of Cheese-Its from the snack machine. I don’t even think Cheese-Its are food. Like Twinkies, if single-celled organisms don’t recognize it as food, it’s probably not. But I ate them, and staved off hunger pangs till I could get to my lunch out in the car. Sooooo….
I needed to make the lunch salad this AM, so I started at 6:15am with my version of a Southwest Black bean Salad.
I apologize that the green beans did not make it into the original inventory. They were leftover from Sunday dinner. I took the inventory prior to dinner and did not know that they would be leftover. I swear, I do not have a secret stash of food that I am pulling out as is convenient for me.
This is the last of the lemonade I made the other day. I tastes good, but I am not used to drinking sugary drinks and it leaves a film on my teeth. Blech.
Once again, I come home from work ravenous. I guess, when I buy junk-crap at work it is more calories than cooking from home. Could all the advice columnists be right? Anyway, my intent here is to cook a Thai-type dish with spaghetti noodles, garlic, lemon juice (lime would be better, but I’m working with what I have), peanut butter and chili powder.
The side is a fresh tomato, sliced and doused w/ red pepper vinaigrette.
(comment: the flavor of the noodle dish was great, but it would take some tweaking texture-wise before I would serve it to company–too gummy. I did make extra, in case the insatible hunger returns……)
