Remember when I did that whole no meat thing for the month of September. So most of the time, my meals were similar to what I regularly ate, especially during the week or when cooking for myself. There were a few new things I tried including this chili, but most were not new at all.
Then one day I came home from work and decided to make this gem for dinner.
In a nutshell it's a LTA. You know, BLT + A without the bacon,
bacon, lettuce, tomato, and avocado, or maybe I should just write in equation form BLT + A - B. Watch out, my inner enginerd is coming out!
I was worried it wouldn't be filling enough because it doesn't have a big protein source but I loved it anyways. Maybe it is just because I love avocado. (Which by the way, are on sale for 50 cents at my grocery store this week! 50 cents! Can you believe it? I didn't till I went to the grocery store and loaded up!).
I often find myself creating meals from whatever leftover produce and/or groceries. And they always end up very random. I generally don't meal plan each week so I just go to the grocery store and buy whatever is on sale or catches my eye. Most of the time I can create meals that are well rounded and delicious from whatever I bought, but other times I will make a meal and put things on my plate and realize that I am only eating veggies, or all the food I am eating is green or yellow. It is kind of funny to see the weird combinations I eat in a typical week.
And now in this totally random blog post I have concocted. I would like to share with you this story about this.
I was apparently feeling generous one day and bought some cookie dough from the Farmer's step-sister, Courtney She was doing some fundraising and I am a total sucker for those things. (Can you say pushover?) I don't really like buying cookie dough because I don't really like how it tastes and it's more expensive. But I gave in and bought a tub of white chocolate macadamia nut because it is something I wouldn't normally make for myself. Since I live a little to far for Courtney to deliver this to me (read: 3.5 hours), they kept it at their house so I could pick it up when I came home next.
So pick it up I did. But I made a critical mistake. Instead of checking to make sure I got a new unopened tub out of the freezer, I ended up picking up this tub. Already opened and used. Actually I blame the Farmer for this since he is the one who grabbed it out of the freezer. None of which I noticed until I arrived back in Chicagoland.
Unfortunately for me, I ended up not making any of the cookies, but the cookie dough is gone. Oops. I ate the rest of that tub with a spoon (not in one sitting mind you).
And that my friends is why I don't buy cookie dough. I have no self-restraint.
