Yep, that title pretty much sums up my week. I had a proposal due Friday and since things have been a little crazy around here, I needed every bit of time to make sure I met that deadline. Then hubby was scheduled for a procedure and had to be on a clear liquid diet for a short time. Yeah, broth and Jell-O get pretty boring when that's all you can have. Trust me, I speak from experience.
Then I discovered this at the grocery store.
Oh boy, oh boy! Clear liquids with flavor.
These new discoveries made my husband a happy camper. He even said the Mexican Tortilla was hot. Like spicy hot. When he says something's hot, I know it's probably too much for me.
But these were only two of the flavors I saw. There was a Thai Ginger, Hot and Sour and a couple others that escape me now. But what a great basis for a quick soup. You could dice up some leftover chicken, maybe add some veggies and you've got a quick and easy meal. For those of us who have deadlines (heck, even if you don't have deadlines), quick and easy is always a plus.
Speaking of deadlines, my next one is already closing in. I need to come up with a plan of action. Make double-size meals and freeze half so all I have to do is heat them up later. Now if I could just come up with a way to make laundry do itself.
