Being that I am always prepared for 6 pm to roll around, I never need to dip in to those quickie recipe files. I also have swampland in Florida for sale, in case you are interested.
I was vaguely prepared for this evening's first course. I had brought some chicken out of the freezer. That counts, right?
While I was spending too much time patting myself on my back for my ingenious endeavour, my lack of dessert suddenly hit me. In some households, this might not be such a big deal. Where I come from, meals did not end without dessert. Homemade dessert. Maybe you could get away without serving dessert at noon hour, but never at the supper hour. Immediate action was required.
Ever pick up those little pamphlets in the grocery store and stick them in your purse, after having perused for coupons? Then find them forgotten several days, weeks, or months later? Well, I finally read one of those today and we are all glad I did.
