BLT + A - B

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.
