I love to cook fortunately, so that’s usually not an issue for me, but there are days when I simply don’t feel like it. yesterday was one of them. I swept and mopped the downstairs, and then started on our taxes. For lunch, I just popped half of the shrimp quesadilla that’d I’d cooked the day before into the Breville (have I mentioned lately how much I LOVE my Breville convection oven?) and enjoyed it thoroughly.
I could eat these every day, but I’d be so freaking fat. I did use whole wheat herbed tortillas, but I didn’t make them so take that with a grain of salt. I put a layer of salsa verde on the bottom, a little sour cream, cheese, onions and garlic, roasted red peppers, mushrooms and shrimp.
I took a six mile walk at the lake with a friend after lunch, and for dinner I still had no urge to cook, so made myself a slice of sourdough toast, a piece of bacon (I keep bacon cooked up in the fridge all the time), a tomato with smoked salt, some Castelvetrano olives (if you’ve never tried them, they are fabulous! They taste nothing like your standard green olive), and a hunk of Brie cheese.
I suppose if I’m going to feed myself today, I should give some thoughts to dinner. Everything I feel like eating is super high calorie… like shrimp and grits. Doesn’t that sound yummy? Or pizza. Oh. Hmmm. YES! I think I’ll go start some dough!
I’d love to hear some of your fallbacks when you don’t have leftovers and don’t want to cook!
