My brain must have used a lot of energy studying microbiology because I was feeling “famished” by the time I arrived home. I put a pot of water on the stove to boil as soon as I walked through the door, and by the time the water started to boil, I had a salad waiting patiently on my plate. Thankfully, I had angel hair in the cupboard – which takes a mere few minutes – so dinner was ready in flash! It wasn’t anything extraordinary:
- pasta with tomato basil marinara, parmesan & chevre
- organic heirloom lettuce, tomato, avocado, cucumber, more jumbo croutons & low-fat parmesan ranch
I would prefer pesto over marinara any day, but I’ll take what I can get when I’m hungry. I was definitely part of the “clean plate club” tonight. I satisfied my sweet tooth with a few too many chocolate chips after dinner. I almost always have a bag of dark chocolate chips in the freezer, with the intention of baking with them, but somehow they usually disappear before I get around to pulling out a recipe.
Somehow there is still a lot left on my “plate”…
