- basmati rice with crispy bits of garlic
We ended up making a great bolognese sauce with the remainder of the meatloaf. It was dinner for at least 3 nights. Thanks for all the great ideas. Then, I convinced myself that since it's a short week and we will be gone for all of next week (California, here we come!) that shouldn't cook enormous amounts of food. I also convinced myself that since I save so much money by packing my lunch and breakfast 5 days a week we should treat ourselves to a big Sunday night take-out Indian meal. $77 and an intense case of heartburn later...
Well, don't I feel stupid!
But it was pretty nice to have a such a warm and filling lunch this afternoon. I'm surprised and kind of sad that it hasn't snowed here yet. I think I get a sick sense of smugness when I leave to go back to California for Christmas and NYC is covered in a blanket of snow. However, it was so bad last winter that I don't dare miss the snow too much. Anyway, I'm feeling bad about getting take-out last night. Not only was it waaaaay too expensive but it was also really unhealthy. Why do we do things like that? Or, I guess I should say, why do I do things like that? Do you ever do things like that? You know, irrational spending coupled with irrational eating. Oh well. Acknowledge and move on.
