Example: normally I only spill about 1/4 cup of water when filling my bottle from the pitcher. Last night? Took the whole pitcher to fill one pesky water bottle. Wouldn't be so bad, 'cept spilled water makes the bottle go musty faster.
Anyway, yeah, Hours. Kinda killed my gnocchi making dinner plans. Well, that and the whole "roommates don't work weekends" thing.
But while they were asleep I did manage something. I sliced up one of the monster zucchini, and half the huuuuge onion I bought last week. I put 1/2 a cup of flour in a big baggie, with lots of spices, and tossed the veggies in it. It was, it turns out, more flour than they could absorb, but mainly because I didn't use as much oil as I normally would.
So kinda steamed/ fried zucchini and onions, with thin breading. Would have been much much better with some ranch dressing, and deep fried, and cooked by someone else.
Gotta live with what you have, I guess.
