:facepalm: - Two minutes after putting a blah old dinner together...
... I have everything here for Paul Prudhomme's Cajun Meatloaf (low-carb version).
Darn it! Even worse, I'd been thinking about making a (high-carb) Natchitoches meat pie riff and c'mon, how good does that sound?
Now, how good does chicken and smashed potatoes and maybe salad/maybe collard greens sound? Yeah, not so much.
There's a reason I usually write out my plan for the week.
So what should you have had?
Just the other night we had braised lemon chicken and jasmine rice. Talk about DULL! Don't ask me what I was thinking! About 8,902 other things would have been much better. The meal itself was ok but I was so disappointed for several days! I hate that I did not make something much more creative and flavourful (and I definitely could have).
Usually I write out meal plans, too, but in Spring and Summer often let what is available in the garden or farmer's market dictate inspiration. But last week? Yikes. Sigh...
