Anyone else suffer from crippling laziness? We went away for a handful of days at the beginning of the month and used that as an excuse to not go to the grocery store beforehand — it’ll all just go bad, right? And then the excuses started afterward. We really couldn’t go the next day because after work we had cuddles to catch up on with the kitties. Then there were work happy hours, friend’s birthdays, and more time with the kitties on the couch. See? Crippling laziness. It’s not me, it’s the world forcing me to be lazy.
I finally went to the store last week, but not before my fridge was pretty empty. Luckily, honey keeps for literally forever and carrots can survive a long time in the fridge. All I needed was the friendly package from Blue Diamond sitting on my doorstep and this side was born.
Now that I think about it, I never ever make side dishes anymore. I just try to make my mains with veggies and protein and call it a meal. So I’d say I’m on my way to laziness recovery. I made this AND tofu AND mac n cheese — that’s basically a four course meal. We can pretend the mac n cheese wasn’t from a box, right?
