The kids got a requested lunch today: broccoli and cheese quesadillas. I added some grilled chicken, some sweet potato, and a lovely mango that had been ripening on the counter. Looks good, huh?
I had Sweet Tomatoes with my mom. I think my lunch was prolly tastier.
I had big plans for dinner. I knew that my daughter and I had to rush off after eating to go to her high school course selection night, a half hour drive away. So I thought, hey, I’ll make something in the crockpot! That way I don’t have to start cooking at 4, we can eat when she gets home around 5, and we can leave in a leisurely manner at 5:45.
Mmmmm, I got black eyed peas in the box. And collards. And I have a ham bone in the freezer. Win!! I added some celery, onion, and green pepper and a can of diced tomatoes that had been in the pantry for a while, and I bought a package of andouille sausage. Doesn’t that sound delicious?!?
Yeah, cooked it on low all day long. Checked it at 4:45, and the peas were still hard. Moved it to a pot on the stove and start boiling to try to get the peas to cook. 30 minutes later, I was giving instructions on finishing the soup to my husband and my daughter and I were heading for drive thru. 😦 it smelled soooooooo good.
Out of the box:
- Sweet potato
- Black eyed peas (all gone!)
- Collards (all gone!)
- Arugula (all gone!)
