So this is Thursday.... hmmm.... I've done Thunks on Thursday for so long that now that they are gone, I don't quite know what to do ;P
First, because of all the non-smoking support and comments from Yesterday's Haiku: I don't smoke! Seriously. I used to smoke socially on some occasions - mostly at bars, in my early 20's. Haven't had a puff in over 20 years. Don't call myself an ex-smoker because I rarely had more than 5 or 6 cigarettes a week. I was just looking at common New Year's Resolutions to make my poem up. I would like to say Thank You to all my commentors. It is good to know that if I did smoke and were trying to quit I'd have all you guys behind me!
Second, while some people have the impression I have a streak of June Cleaver in me - I really don't. I do enjoy cooking so I cook most of our food from scratch. Sometimes, when I'm in a hurry or feeling lazy, and I don't have a standby in the freezer or fridge, I will try cheats from the store. I saw the McCormmick Recipe Inspirations World flavors. It IS expensive as a regular means of obtaining spices. But for a night I was feeling lazy - there is all the spices pre-measured and a recipe card that cuts out of the back and it was on sale from $1.99 to 99cents. I bought the Asian Salmon, some salmon, made some quick ginger honey glazed carrots and brown/wild rice. It was really good!
I also bought Chicken Tikka Massala. I made that on a different night, served it over rice with a nice crisp tossed salad on the side. I didn't follow the directions exactly ( ok except for baking I rarely do) but it came out really good too.
Hopefully by next Thursday I'll have a better plan than rambling, but I'm not making any promises!
