I always have the best intentions to be productive when I spend a night at home, but things donâ€™t always go to plan…
On my way home I stopped at Kroger to buy some ingredients for a meal I wanted to try â€” a modified â€œChicken with Forty Cloves of Garlicâ€ â€” to which I substituted Italian sausage for some of the chicken. Since the oven was going to be on anyway, I also baked three sweet potatoes. My meal was â€œdifferentâ€, but I liked it. The meal also took much longer to make than anticipated.
The fact that I was able to cook was nearly a miracle since I was almost hit by a car in the Kroger parking lot as I wheeled my groceries toward my car. The look of horror in the face of the driver, who was driving carelessly and did not use a turn signal, convinced me that my fear of being hit was not imagined.
For the next three weeks I hope to consume a lot of the food that currently resides in my pantry, refrigerator, and freezer, buying as little as possible to make meals from it.
Tonight is German class, or so I believe as I type this.
