Let’s call this a Meatless Monday lunch on a Wednesday, shall we?
I’m battling a bug. First it was a cold. Now it’s aches and a bad stomach. I’ve got a luscious container of leftover pot roast in the fridge, but looking at it somehow makes me feel even more ill.
How can that be?
What I want… What I want… Is…
I don’t know, but I’m hungry.
So I settle on Miso Soup. But I have no tofu. And I have no green onions. So I make do with edamame. And frozen chives.
It’s not the same. But the broth is good.
And when I am putting the chives away, I see my long-lost, frozen eggplant
It’s mild creaminess sounds perfect. So I heat some up to go with my soup
But it doesn’t satisfy like I thought. The char is too bitter for my intolerant taste buds today.
So I did what anyone in my position would do.
I ate half a sleeve of Thin Mints and laid down on the couch to watch Top Chef on YouTube. Suddenly I’m feeling a whole lot better.
