Yummy stuff -- and mostly yummy stuff...

I'll start with the mostly yummy --- I went to a local Indian restaurant for lunch today. Of course, I wasn't impressed, because I have a really high standard for Indian food (if you go to Omaha, let me know and I'll tell you where to get the BEST in the world...). I think it will do if I have a real craving, but the local place isn't a real temptation.

The actual yummy stuff -- Kraft mac & cheese with IKEA Swedish meatballs... I've had a bag of frozen IKEA Swedish meatballs in the freezer for a long, long time (probably at least a year, maybe longer because we could have moved them). Last night I made mac & cheese for dinner and got the inspiration to throw a few frozen ones into the boiliing water. They were really good -- excellent even... So good that I may make a double batch tonight -- eat part for dinner and take the rest for lunch tomorrow. It didn't matter that the meatballs were icy and likely freezer burned -- they were good in the cheesey sauce.

What to eat when I'm alone is a problem for me, especially because I don't enjoy cooking alone, and I'm low on energy in the evening. I'm having chicken tonight for the 5th night in a row. It's not quite as bad as it sounds. I buy a roasted chicken at the grocery store and do something different (but simple) with it every night until I'm at the point where it's time to make soup from what's left (that's tonight). When I call my husband three time zones away, he'll tell me how he just had homemade enchiladas or some such thing. (He even makes tortillas from scratch.) We can both cook, but he'll do things for himself that I wouldn't dream of doing for myself alone. I just have no enthusiasm for cooking when I'm alone.
