I did the cooking tonight. Very uncharacteristic. Sometimes, despite my track record for creating bland, uninteresting dishes, I feel there might be hope.
In goes the veggies, plop goes the noodles.
Stir it all up, and voila! A fabulous experiment in relatively bland cooking.
But virtually everything's better with the spicy-hot goodness of a few squirts of sriracha.
Everyone's elsewhere tonight, so I ate my noodle veggie dish while watching Breaking Bad.
It's all good.
As for the earlier part of the day, I went to an estate sale, bought a Burger King cheeseburger phone a la Juno (a mere $5), finally, after 23 days, I bought gas to the tune of $41, I had lunch with a friend ($10), bought Logan some dance gear ($26), enjoyed tea at Tres Jolie in downtown Littleton ($13), bought two birthday cards at Details (one for Robin and one for Anne - 7.50. What's up with that? Two birthday cards for 7.50?). This was an expensive day, but it was worth every penny.
Because a bit more attention was paid today.
A scant few weeks ago, I'd have thought nothing about the level of spending I did today.
I think I'm gaining a bit of perspective.
And based on tonight's dinner, I defer to Logan whenever possible when it comes to cooking.
Thank god for sriracha.
