had plans yesterday. I was going to cook some niku-jyaga
and it was gonna be awesome. And then I got trapped
in the highway because the police shut it down
for a manhunt. No joke, they were going car to car,
searching some for a bank robber who had been slipped
a tracking device. It was all on the news, so if the
robber turned on his radio he probably took out the
tracking thingie and snuck it onto someone else's car.
Anyway, I got home very late, hungry, angry, and in
no mood to wait another hour or so until the food
was ready to eat. At times like this, leftovers and
a small stockpile of frozen food are lifesavers.
So what did I have left over? The freezer offered
me crab rangoon
gyoza, which I gratefully accepted. The fridge
had boiled baby octopus
- doesn't everyone have some of that in their fridge?
zucchini peel, and a few bits of steamed purple
cauliflower. The freezer then upped the ante with
chip melon pan. Wham, bam, and 5 minutes later I'm
closing the lid on my lunch box.
