I’m glad to see that everyone in my little family woke up this morning. I had my doubts since our dinner last night may or may not have included an ingredient that may or may not have been a little past its expiration date.
And when I say “a little”, it may or may not mean the can had sat for a month on the refrigerator shelf .
There go my chances at one day having my own program on Food Network.
Or having any of you ever accept a dinner invitation to my house.
Speaking of houses, we’re outgrowing ours. We’re thinking of moving and getting into a place that has a little more breathing room and keeps me from tripping over the sprawling giants that lay in the living room floor and play Nintendo as I try to step over their ever lengthening legs to get into the kitchen. We’ve got an appointment next week to look at some houses on the market, and while I’m excited about the possibility of a bigger pantry and more cabinet space, the thought of cleaning out my current cabinets to get the house show ready about sends me into orbit.
If any of you know of someone who is looking for a 3 bedroom, two and a half bath, two garage, one story ranch on a 1 acre level lot in a wonderfully quiet neighborhood, let me know because I’d love to avoid the whole Central Showing Stash and Dash thing.
Speaking of things that send me into orbit, I was over the moon about my lunch yesterday to which I treated myself after that little unpleasantness at the lady doctor (stay with me, ImNotNed). I went to Aladdin’s for a falaffel sandwich and it had pickled turnips in it and you would think, “Eeewww” but have I ever steered you wrong in the food department?
I think not.
They were crunchy and tangy and pickle-y and a perfect pairing with the fried falaffel and I can see them becoming a hard habit to break.
You’re welcome for having Chicago looping in your brain for the rest of the day.
I’d like to make my own sandwiches at home, but I”m not sure where I can find pickled turnips, so I’m going to get out today to see if I can find a Middle Eastern market in town and won’t that be a fun blog post?
Have a nice day.
