I made too much quiche & couscous on Wednesday night (as always), so we had leftovers for dinner Thursday night. On the one hand, it meant I didn't HAVE to scramble to get dinner cooked. On the other hand, it meant I didn't GET to cook.
Thursdays tend to be my favorite day of the week anyhow, because thats the day the AJC Food Section comes out. I usually spend Thursday evenings devouring the section and clipping out recipes to try the following week. This week, though, the Food section was plopped into a stack of reading materials that I haven't gotten to yet (including the Cooking Light issue I was so happy about on Wednesday). So where I should have spent the evening clipping recipes and making the grocery list so that I could get the food shopping done early Friday morning, I instead spent the evening hyperlinking my mom's latest blog entry to within an inch of its life.
Now it is Friday morning, and me without my grocery list.
Since I didn't get to cook dinner last night, and since we ended up eating the same thing we had eaten the night before, the exciting food moment of the day turned out to be lunch. Mom brought me the other half of her deli veggie sub (beggars can't be choosers), and it thrilled me.
Tonight, sadly, we still have an ENTIRE quiche left to eat (I seriously need to think about cutting that recipe in half), so I only need to come up with a side dish to go with it. I'm thinking the side dish will have something to do with either brussels sprouts or green beans, but that all depends on how the day goes.
