What's For Dinner

We were having one of those "We-can't-imagine-doing-anything-but-staying-in-the-house-listening-to-Django Reinhardt-baking-pumpkin pie-passed-out-in-front-of-the-fire" kind of nights so the prospect of going out to buy groceries for dinner was bleak.

"Surely we can make something with what we have at home," Evan insisted.

I wasn't so sure.

Then again, this is also one of my most favorite games. You know, the "What's behind cupboard #3" game? Given our state of ultimate vegetativeness, we were after something warm and comforting. Here's what I was able to come up with for tonight's meal:

a roaring fire w/ the one you love

I do that sometimes. I call it Crazy Pasta... or Crazy Rice depending on what ingredients are being used.
