I have a great, GREAT week coming up for you on The Art of Doing Stuff. Posts I’m really excited about.
But what I’m most excited for next week is eating more Curried Chicken Salad. Honest to God, I can’t get enough of this stuff. I don’t even put it on toast or lettuce anymore. I make it, then stand at the counter and eat it out of the bowl until I’m peeing curry.
Beef & Broccoli I’m not totally in love with but I cam eat it. The fella loves it, so I make it. I figure it’s my “duty” seeing as I’m the one who is always deciding on the menu for the week.
That’s something I remember about living at home. I couldn’t wait until I was the one that decided what I was having for dinner. For every meal of joy and excitement I found at that colonial maple kitchen table with matching chairs, there was also the meal of dread and despair. For every mound of lasagna there was a day of pork chops drenched in cream of mushroom soup.
There’s nothing worse than being starving and being served glop. Not that my mother’s cooking was glop, but she liked cream of mushroom soup. I hated it. She liked boiled cabbage. I hated it.
So one of the joys of living on my own has always been cooking things I love and eating them. So every once in a while I’ll cook something I know the fella loves that I don’t.
Just to be fair. You know. ‘Cause I’m a really good person.
Plus, when I’m eating something I don’t love for dinner, I always have room for snacking later on. So if we’re having beef & broccoli for dinner you know I’ll also be having Ruffles and dip with television.
I find it’s an excellent compromise. That I do out of the goodness of my heart. ‘Cause I’m a really good person who likes potato chips a lot.
