I’m trying to mix things up on the dinner front. I’ve tried the bulk cooking thing and while I enjoy the ease of making a dinner that one can just pop into the oven I missed the fresher things and had a hard time remembering what was in the freezer. Also didn’t care for the 8-hour cooking marathon. Who has time for that?
Keeping things interesting is difficult at my house – I don’t care for loads of meat and Steve hates most vegetables…namely beans. So I’m not sure what I was thinking when I decided to make a vegetarian version of sloppy joes out of lentils. I told him we were having sloppy joes for dinner and omitted the fact they were made from beans. Not a good idea, in hindsight.
Wonderful aromas wafting from the kitchen – sauteing onion, garlic and green pepper – what could be better? Smells promising. Then he sees the bag of beans. I get the look. The ‘Are You Trying To Kill Me With Vegetables Again’ look. To his credit he tastes it and then turns it down. That’s all I can ask. Then he made a hamburger.
I live to cook another day.
