When I finally woke up I was like "ZOMG, I has to eat and stare at this blank screen pretending to work!!!"
So I called my mommy again instead.
I did eventually make some food. I still need to scour the crock pot, so no beans. I did remember something important, though.
I still have those fast cooking, tasty, super easy noodles from the Asian supermarket. Not all of them, but a good chunk of the box.
So I cleaned out a pot and boiled some noodles, then attacked them with enough soy sauce to kill an elephant, a bit of garlic powder, and some tasty oil (for slip and calories), dragged the bowl back to my lair, and nommed them.
I need to do that again, only I want to remember to add the powdered ginger first next time- makes the noodles taste more like ramen.
Because i slept pretty much all day, I had plenty of stay awake all night going. So around midnight I made more food.
Did I tell you that I bought a sweet potato? It was all of 45 cents, and well over 1/2lb. It was about the size of one of those large baked potatoes you get at a steakhouse, or something. Just huge. So small for a sweet potato.
I turned it into oven fries, which were yummy, and ate them dipped in my only remaining non-soy sauce.
Yep, I dipped sweet potato fries in Sweet Chili Sauce. It was *sooo goood* that I'm now trying to figure out what other things I could make (with what I've got in the house) to dip into the sauce and nom.
What do you think about black beans with onions, wrapped in thin pastry/ spring roll wrapper, fried then dipped in Sweet Chili Sauce? I think it's got possibilities. I mean, I'd rather have salsa, cheesey stuff, sour supreme, and a vat of guac, but ya can't have everything, right?
Not trying the sweet chili sauce with lentils, tho- I don't think *anything* could make brown or green lentils taste good. Pleh.
