I will buy dried beans and think "oh I will make a big pot of baked beans!" Or pick up a giant squash and think "ahhh squash and curry soup!". But the fact of the matter is I live on my own and I can only eat the same thing for three days, tops. On the occasion that I make soup, for some reason I make enough for seven people to eat for three days straight, which if you do the math means I am eating that soup for 21 days (I think, I am not great at math and I was drinking wine earlier).
This kind of gluttony and waste is getting on my nerves. So no more bullsh*t as La Mamman would say.
Basically this means that now I get what I order from Farmers to You and allow myself to supplement with a box of pasta, some tomatoes, and fresh herbs when I need to, and everything else is stuff I have in the pantry already. Or in the freezer.
For Sunday lunch this week I really used my imagination to pull diverse ingredients together to make a meal that was edible. Truth be told I was a little concerned and was thinking that if all else failed I would get a roasted chicken and make a spinach salad.
After some rummaging and a couple of cups of coffee, this is what I came up with:
|Stewed lentils with cumin & onion|
|Spinach & Queso Fresco Quiche|
|Meme's Cake with raspberry filling|
