Once again, it’s dinner time. No one can figure out what to eat ’cause, well–“there’s nothing in the house.” So the inertia builds until I come home from work and try not to get irritated because there’s ALWAYS something to be made. Even a heel of cheese and some tortillas can be whipped up in to a respectable quesadilla with a little hot sauce to sprinkle on.
Here, a chopped up old head of bok choy comes together with some leftover Chinese take-out brown rice sauteed in scallions and garlic. Hit with some miso tamari (pantry) whipped with a few eggs and voila-there’s enough for 5 bowls of food. Scrounge a cucumber and some cilantro form the crisper, squeeze on some lime and you’re good to go. A little leftover rose saved my day and night too, I admit. And, I’m reminded that I must stock up the freezer and pantry for the next, “there’s nothing in the house”dinner.
