kightp... I won't have much time to nosh on produce and I don't want it to sit in the refrigerator until Sunday night. I overbought perishable food last week at Trader Joe's, and now I have to get rid of it all quickly, because tomorrow I have a big interview, and then a train trip to visit |
And that means having to eat huge amounts of this awful produce.
Mixed greens. Sweet onions. Carrot and red pepper, and radishes. (Okay, granted: I have far too many radishes. But I also don't mind having to throw some of *those* away.) Thank the lord for blue cheese dressing....
But alas, a large salad won't solve my woes. I also have large containers of red cherries, Ranier cherries, and fresh strawberries.
Woe, oh woe... if only there was someone to save me from this awful fate!
Woe! If I could get to you, I would save you from some of those fruits and veggies. The Mousie looovvees strawberries.
Waaah! I'm on the wrong side of a ferry ride. *grin*
Good luck on your interview!
... and then I'll probably force you to come to the farmers' market with me on Saturday morning, too...
(Pssst: The onion, carrot, pepper and radishes? Should keep. And you could probably manage the cherries as train snacks).
HEY! I'm playing for *sympathy* here!
(Pepper's already cut and it seems cruel to cut a piece of a large carrot off and not put the rest out of its misery. Yeah, I know the radishes will keep, which is what's so cruel about radishes :-).)
Oh, right, and damn it, all those variety cherry tomatoes... yellow and orange and red. Alas, if I didn't have bacon to fry to sprinkle over top of the salad, I'd be unable to face the evening's trials.
That's right, taunt me.
(It's 103 degrees down here, and I don't have anything in the house to eat that doesn't require cooking. Besides, I'm committed to walking down to the park for the last concert of the season, because I dropped my blanket off down there before work this morning. The AC in my car died again - yeah, evidently I have a coolant leak, and by the time I can afford the repairs, the hot spell will be over. I'm a wee bit cranky.)
Well... I have to cook the *bacon*. (But then, my mini-air conditioner does blow right into the kitchen.)
Here's hoping a comfortably cool and uncomfortably warm night awaits you....
 temperature wise, of course
 I *hope* I don't have to explain *this* :-)
Given that I've already had uncomfortably warm (it's still 86F!), does that mean I can count on comfortably cool this weekend?
