She also was trying to get me to let her buy me more food- like rice, and possibly beans. But having already borrowed money and been gifted with veggies and promised lunch, I figured I was more than far enough into the whole mom-borrowing thing for, well, a good long while.
Plus, there's always the possibility that she'd count groceries as winter-holiday/ birthday gifts, and I'd much rather have cookies than rice.
I *still* kinda really hate rice.
So after the short trip to the nearby mothball smelling grocery store Mom and I went to Moe's.
I may have talked about Moe's before. They have burritos. And tacos. And Tofu.
I heart Moes.
I got ginormous burrito the size of my head. Mom got a similarly huge taco, some queso, and we both had soda/ tea stuff. I think I'm still full. They have yummy salsa. Some day I'm going to go there with my own real money and get a burrito with some of everything I eat on it. And beer. Lots of beer.
Oh, yeah, they sell Beer at Moe's.
Yep. So then we went back, looked at dog stuff, I showed her the hyperbole and a half blog, and chatted. I'm sure she was ready to get rid of me by then.
She packed me up a couple bags of veggies. There was a ripe avocado, a nice tomato, an eggplant even bigger than the burrito bigger than my head I ate, some garlic, some onions, a couple potatoes, the head of cabbage she got for me back when she bought the amazing non-furry yellow squash. Hmmm... what else... Ooh, 2 lbs of carrots. I think there was something else too, but I don't remember what....
For even more better-er-ness, I also have caffeine again, and the TD is (probably) going for a second, overnight tryout visit.
For badness, though, I think the mystery red sauce gave me super painful explosive intestine stuff. Or else that was the salsa...
Otherwise, any ideas what to do with a 2+ pound eggplant? Trying to decide between babaganoush, roast eggyplant pizza/ calzone, and some kinda eggplant stuffed ravioli. That one is *not* in the lead. It's much more work than the others. More cleaning, too.
