See, I've got potatoes. So rather than have to clean out the crockpot (which might need more cleaning than I think it does, but any cleaning is more than I want to do) and cook beans, I just dice and fry potatoes. When I'm feeling really, really lazy I just pick 2 or 3 small potatoes, fork holes in them, and nuke them until they're "baked." Add salt, onion powder, and a light drizzle of oil and I'm fed for a while.
Problem is I've got all this splendid other stuff. Heck, I could make *peas and potatoes* in curry- automatic +6 for healthiness! Takes maybe an extra 4 minutes. Did I? Nope. Just fried potatoes.
Meanwhile I'm craving, with viciousness, that super simple chickpea curry. And rice.
To be honest, I'm not craving the rice I've got- I'm craving the swish basmati stuff with saffron tossed in for extra points/ flavor/ fanciness. Sadly, neither swish rice nor saffron are being harmed in the making of my menus. It makes me cry.
So yesterday I ate potatoes. Today is looking like potatoes, too. Hopefully with something else tossed in- like the peas and curry. But we'll see.
Totally off topic-
I tried to imagine what turns my life would need to take for me to want to own a house. Finally figured it out- If I had a TARDIS, I'd want a house to keep it in. Mainly to keep random strangers from trying to take it. If I had a yummy Time Lord instead, I wouldn't need a house- just regular food delivery. Wait, that's what I want anyway....
Back on topic-
I'm having trouble keeping my week straight. I eat, work, eat, sleep, repeat. The days kinda run together. I've tried using my google calendar to keep stuff straight, but it doesn't pop up, or ding, or anything. Do any of you make up your own schedule? Like, totally? How do you keep the days separate, or at least, how do you remember to get (non-work) stuff done? The cooking just kinda drops off for me. But right now, so does everything else....
