Plan B

Yesterday afternoon I was thinking about what I might like to have for dinner. Yes, I like food. I don't like to cook it, but I love to eat it. What came to mind was a burger and fries. I am a vegetarian, so I buy frozen veggie burgers. They're okay, but they are not big, fat juicy burgers or even remotely close to that. They are thin, flat and dry. To make my burger a bit yummier, I decided I would saute some mushrooms and onions and then slice up some cheddar and provolone to pile on top. I thought about it all afternoon.

When it was time to start dinner, I sliced up some potatoes to make oven fries and then sauteed the mushrooms and onions. I opened the freezer to get my burger....hmmmm.....where is a box of burgers? I looked on the top shelf, on the lower shelf and in the door. I moved around some of the stuff in the freezer because I knew I had to have a box of burgers. I always have a box of burgers. In fact, most of the time I have more than one box of burgers.

No burgers!

Are you kidding me? How could I have no burgers?

Well, that's an easy question to answer....I guess because I ate the last one and didn't buy any when we went shopping!

In my ongoing effort to not get rattled over little things that really don't matter....I pulled out some bread, sliced up more cheese and had a big, fat greasy grilled cheese with my fries.

I've never had a veggie burger. But I've been there, done that many times not having something here to eat that I thought I did.

Sounds yummy. I love "slaw dogs." Hot dog buns filled with chili and slaw and relish and mustard, minus the hot dog.

Sounds similar to our dinner last night. I was going to grill fish and veggies. The fish wasn't thawed and I don't nuke fish. Tastes and feels like rubber if I do. Didn't have any grillable--is that a word?--veggies. You know--like zucchini, eggplant, peppers, and the like. Had to run to the store for that.

I like my grilled cheese "loaded" too--with tomatoes and grilled onions...yum!

So, are you still "jonesing" for your veggie burger? Sometimes I'm in the mood for Chinese and wind up having Pizza or Tacos instead.
I will keep craving Chinese until I get my "fix". I'm like that!

Mmmm, so did you put the onions and mushrooms on the grilled cheese? Because that would be yummy!
