So it’s been a rough week. Maybe someday I’ll blog about it, but for now the important thing to know is that we have eaten take out for approximately 24 of the last 26 meals. Tonight I decided it had to end and I made dinner. Before leaving for work this morning I threw a pound of ground pork in the fridge to defrost and decided I’d figure it out when I got home.
I ended up making two recipes, Bahn Mi Vietnamese meatballs and Green Beans with Sizzling Garlic (both are only in the book). I love having my CSA because I had veggies in the fridge ready to cook even though I haven’t been to the store in a while. The two recipes didn’t go together at all, but they were both delicious and on the table in less than 30 minutes start to finish.
The wine was good, too.
