Well, turns out I did indeed sand- and slaw-wich myself out yesterday (not a surprise, ha). So, no Zabar’s corned beef on rye for lunch today. Just slaw-as-salad, sliced garden tomatoes, and a few last bites of the grilled pork…sniff, sniff…we miss it already. That was a true summer treat, mmm hmmmm. You know, I never did eat it with barbecue sauce (John and Nathan happily did, however), it was so good right off the grill that to me, it didn’t need it. I’ll look forward to repeating the whole smoky, porky, slow-grill thang next summer…
Tonight I’m thinking I’ll make pasta with broccoli (same idea as pasta with broccolini) – I still have some from last week’s CSA veggie load. Lots of garlic and parm, of course. NICE.
Well, almost nice, I ended up eating completely alone (nice dorky pout, however, huh? Thank goodness I didn’t try to be an actor…) while John was at work and Nathan at baseball practice. I held out ’til 7:45, then dug in… (Actually, not so bad at all, I’m actually quite content eating solo…)
Oh! Nathan’s home now, and just brought me an unsolicited scoop of Ben & Jerry’s Coffee Heath Crunch ice cream in a little bowl – how sweet! And delicious, wowee – I try to skip the desserts, since I’m so obviously into the dinners (no!), but damn, that is some goooood ice cream. G’night!
Hahahaha, much better indeed. I don't remember eating anything but pizza in that house, ha (including the pizza you would make!). And cereal - that is MY milk. I think we did cook a "real meal" a couple of times, like spaghetti with meat sauce and garlic bread or something. I remember I made hashbrowns more than a couple of times, I had just learned how from my Grandma...butter + potatoes = hashbrowns, good ones too. What the hell else did we eat on a regular basis? We didn't eat out every night! I can picture the kitchen, and the brown stove, and the window and counter and peach color you guys painted the room...but not our everyday food. Hmmm...
Have to say, I read your blog late last night..And I had a dream about college, and our house sophomore year..and you were making BBQ for all of us! Much better than the reality of mac & cheese..
