food planning

I have three meals of food in my fridge – if only I have three nights of energy to make them.

Meal #1 – stir fry
beef, already cut in strips (but I haven’t added a marinade)
snow peas

Meal #2 – quesadillas
Mexican chorizo
leftover sauteed onions & peppers
summer squash
salsa (not yet made)

Meal #3 – imam bayaldi
olive oil

food in fridge not accounted for:
chicken leftovers
the rest of the summer squash
green beans
more tomatoes

clear off sewing table and pull out sewing machine

turn roasting pan

get out sewing machine, plug it in, and find white thread

wash japanese eggplants. Peel in strips and place in soup pot until the base if covered, no more (if there is eggplant left over, it’s going in the stir fry). Add olive oil to the soup pot and brown the eggplant, turning as you go.

Mark up the pants, and pin them while you are standing around turning the eggplant.

put roasted tomatoes in a container in the fridge.

Microwave cooked leeks, chop up tomatoes, chop garlic, chop parsley, squeeze lemon into a teacup and mix in sugar and some water

fill eggplants, pour liquid over, close up pot, lower heat, and let cook for 45 minutes.

get character sheet and take a jar of peach sauce over to gaming group for hanging out and experimental food.


Chances of all of that happening with none falling by the wayside? Approaching 0%, but we’ll see.

One thought on “food planning”

  1. I am pretty sure that schedule is unsustainable by any human person, dude.

    Conclusion: You are a robot.

    Indeed. I totally punted on dinner last night, but I did get the green tomatoes broiled and skinned. Tonight’s dinner should be simpler (and I won’t have a stupid karate uniform to hem that will break my sewing machine!), and maybe I can make the imam bayildi at the same time to put up for lunches… or maybe that’ll be Sunday’s dinner.
