The day I finally decide to ressurect Blurty, I'm completely at a loss as to what to eat for dindin.
It's an absolutely gorgeous evening, people have been out in their backyards BBQ'ing, smells have been wafting through my window and back door. And I can't think of a single thing to eat.
Mom did call earlier asking if I wanted to go over for steak, but for some reason, I'm just not in a 'cooked by mom steak' mood. Going to a restaurant having it done exactly the way I want? Sure, I'd be game for that.. but today, not a Mommy steak.
So what does that leave me with to do? Forage around in the fridge, pantry and cupboards of course.
The results, in no particular order? Not good. Here are some of the things I found:
* Leftover rice -- white and wild
* Can Refried Beans
* Chicken breasts/legs/thighs -- frozen
* Pasta -- always around
* Mushrooms -- white
* Chinese gluten -- aka fake meat
* Pierogies -- frozen
* Jones Soda
* 2 garlic smokies
* Shrimp & Scallops -- frozen
* Package of bratwurst
Looking over that short list of things I've got going on, now that it's written out, nothing looks appealing still.
Sure, I could do something along the lines of a jambalaya or paella, but that takes far more time than I'm willing to spend right now on cooking seeing as it's all frozen meat. Could just do a simple pasta or fried rice but the weather today is just screaming for something spring-summery. I think I will drink the Jones though. That I can manage without too much difficulty.
I think what I'm really wanting (and really, should've ordered yesterday when I went out for lunch with gf J and then window shopping for the afternoon instead of the mediocre, overcooked beef dip with oversalty "jus" -- which it wasn't even a jus, but a bad excuse for salty beef gravy -- and boring, trendy shoestring fries) is a Diva Salad with a hunk of garlic bread.
So what is a Diva Salad, you ask? Probably about the only salad I would ever dare order in a restaurant as a main entree. And huge, I might add. The menu, I believe, reads something as such: Grilled Chicken, grape tomatoes, avocado, dried cranberries and feta cheese on the requisite lettuce with a nice citrusy vinaigrette. That, is a Diva Salad.
So what's a girl to do? All alone on a sunday night, with her hubby away on business until 355am Monday morning when nothing sounds appealing in the food department at home?
I could do the obvious: Go out to eat! Yes, I could. But that would imply I have money to burn. And really, I know people do it all the time, but I don't want to eat alone in a restaurant. It seems like such a waste of an experience when you could share the fun of watching anorexic girls posing as waitresses and/or hostess walking around in teensy little ugly short skirts and sleeveless shirts with far too many sequins all about and really hideously ugly pink stiletto heels! I guess my dad calls it a Bimbo Palace for a reason.
Well, I shall see what happens.
I might just call the restaurant and ask if I can order a salad to go... for $13.99 + tax... not including the one hunk of garlic bread @ $1.99. (And at that price, if I eat in the restaurant, someone better be keeping me company!)
