Really, there isn’t. Late Thursday afternoon I had all the kids out for haircuts, so Mr. M made pizzas for us using the par-baked crusts spoken of in last weekend’s food prep post.
Last night, I had to use up the rest of that monster bag of bargain kale before it went south, so I made sauteed kale with mushrooms (bought on sale last week, also going south) and garlic. I deglazed the pan with a bit of white wine, having forgotten to take out a container of vegetable stock to thaw. Meanwhile I had angel hair cooking in our microwave pasta cooker… and I’m starting to give up on that thing. I don’t know what I’m doing wrong, but all but the first two batches of pasta I’ve made in that thing have been just this side of inedible. They’re gummy and mushy and gross. So, we had food last night, and it was all by the book, but it wasn’t very tasty. Alas. There wasn’t enough Parmesan cheese in the world to save it.
