So, I was about to leave the office today when I realized two things:
1. The contents of my fridge consist of; a Tupperware of leftover icing from JL’s birthday cake 2 weeks ago (using this amazing recipe), 1 tomato and 3 packs of cream cheese
2. I have nothing to eat for dinner!
The thing is, I have all these fantastic cookbooks stacked up on my living room bookshelf, but after a long day of work, I can hardly open my eyes, let alone spend upwards of an hour cooking for one.
Besides, it’s not as if everyone has little pots of herbs growing in their kitchen a la Jamie Oliver, or obscure-slash-random ingredients just lying around the kitchen (Yes I’m talking to you, Nigella). Knowing their recipes, I’d have to haul my ass to Sainsbury’s, then discover once I’m there that they don’t stock all the required ingredients, give up, go home and eat instant noodles - YET AGAIN.
Out of sheer desperation, and the inability to stomach the thought of eating instant noodles one more night this week, I googled "what to make for dinner"…
And the site (above) popped up, like a gift from God. I wonder why no one’s thought of this before; the sheer and utter brilliance of it! And how rude too!
Love it! <3
Not that the site came in handy for tonight; I ended up eating instant noodles while waiting for my chilli-miso-honey-sesame chicken wings to cook. But hey, at least I have a recipe for dinner with M on Thursday.
