Occassionally people will ask me how I find time to cook after work. Usually, I say that cooking relaxes me. It helps me destress. I’m truly happy going home and chopping vegetables and throwing together a meal.
But, sometimes, that just doesn’t happen. Lately, more often than not, I’m working late and trying to figure out how to fit in a late workday, gym, and eating dinner — plus any school work that needs to get done by Sunday.
Last night, for example, I had tuna on an english muffin and “soup”. The “soup” was little more than pastina pasta cooked in chicken broth with a little frozen spinach tossed in. I finished it off with a beaten egg and some parmesan cheese. Not fancy, but comforting.
Tonight, I’m at work trying to get a good chunk of my paper done (at work due to computer issues at home) — I’m eating a SmartOnes pizza.
I bought the frozen pizza when I stopped at the grocery store for lunch (I love their salad bar). I saw that the SmartOnes were on sale. Usually, I’m a Lean Cuisine girl. But, I figured it was worth a taste test.
The verdict? Blah. Lean Cuisines rule and SmartOnes drool.
Now I know — and we all know that’s half the battle!
