I was off from work today. Something about Cesar Chavez, yadda yadda. I had all of these grand plans – laundry, work, bathing the dog…
What did I really do? Watched copious amounts of 48 Hours, Dateline and Keeping Up with the Kardashians, napped, pondered the state of my eyebrows and went to Target to buy roughly $75 worth of stuff I totally did not need.
Yeah, I’d call that success.
Unfortunately, 5pm rolled around and I was ravenous. Hi – I may as well be living in a nursing home. Blue plate special, anyone?
Luckily, this meal is delicious, easy and fast. I recommend following it up with Ben and Jerry’s Phish Food.
