I’ve been avoiding the grocery store, which means I just had a lunch of peanut butter, nutella, and rice cakes. I’m telling you this because I’m a little ashamed of my laziness… but also to show off a bit, because my lunch was delicious. At least I’m honest, dear Internet, yes?
The reason why I’m avoiding the inevitable?
1. I like a challenge. Can you make dinner out of rice pasta, brown bananas and black beans? 1 … 2 … 3… GO! I’ll wait here and be your taste tester (make sure you pass along the recipe, because that’s all we have left).
2. I’m avoiding a bigger task at hand. Grocery shopping means menu planning, and Katie doth not want to map out her meals at the moment. John and I eat out very little (darn gluten) and most of our meals come completely from scratch (again, darn gluten), and whine, whine, whine, but that’s a lot of work!
3. This beauty (among others):
A quest for summer skirts turned into a mini It’s-On-Sale-And-I-Want-It-So-Badly-So-Yes-Please purchasing parade, and I’m still feeling a tad bit guilty for spending more money than I anticipated. I can’t say I regret it though, this sucker is the perfect medium for my thrives-in-heat-AC-at-80-puhlease body temp and John’s desire to relocate to the Arctic Circle. Compromise is beautiful, isn’t it (and ohsosoft).
