good morning! We’re kinda scraping the ‘bottom of the barrel’ with today’s hoddle topic. But it kinda fits ..
I like to use my slow cooker on Mondays. Last thing I want to do after a day of work on a Monday is to cook immediately afterwards, so I let the slow cooker do its work.
It’s usually a vegetable dish of some sort. This week was a vegetable stew (eggplant, yellow squash, chickpeas, onion, yellow bell pepper, kale and veggie pesto) over some rice and quinoa mix.
First night? Very tasty, very happy. I usually go for the tomato pesto but the grocery store didn’t have that this time.
Second night? Also not too bad. But I just came home from a tennis match and needed a little more protein, so I added an egg. Didn’t taste as good with the egg.
Wednesday lunch? Well, I’m getting a little sick of it now. Again with the egg too. Although this time I let the egg cook a little bit more first before mixing it in with the vegetables and rice. Still, a little sick of it.
And guess what’s on the menu for Thursday lunch: That’s right, Monday’s cooking (sans egg). Gotta say, I’m not looking forward to it. I am looking forward to spending $0 on lunch and the side salad I’ll have with that.
Cannot wait for dinner, where I’ll be enjoying the leftovers I also had on Wednesday night.
