Some nights it's like scraping the bottom of the mental barrel trying to figure out what to make for dinner.
Who am I kidding? That's most nights.
As I've mentioned before, my husband has his routine meals, but I don't eat most of the things he eats (hello hamburger three times a week!).
Sometimes I see something in the store that makes me think, that might work.
That happened in Whole Foods last week. I saw a bag of mixed quinoa (red and white), buckwheat and millet.
So I baked the squash, made the grain mix, cooked up some green lentils, chopped up an apple, drizzled some maple syrup, sprinkled some nutmeg, and VOILA! Dinner.
I wish I could say I loved it to death, but honestly, I don't love quinoa. The apple and squash were delicious.
The lentils had a really weird reaction in the water. They formed these little bubbles and looked like hundreds of eyes staring up at me. I felt like I was lost in Greek mythology.
|Should I call them my Argus lentils?|
|I forgot to take a photo, so this is the dish squeezed into a container for lunch.|
So what do you make when you're feeling uninspired?
