No scrambled eggs or bacon, I just have time for you

I’ve been a bad blogger. I’ve ate and made delicious things and didn’t take picture and have neglected to tell you about them in any capacity. Sorry. Kinda. Really I’ve been adjusting to having a school schedule again in the midst of trying to figure out my housing issue (waaah, don’t leave us Christine!). And I’m not gonna kid you, I’ve been a complete basket case to pretty much everyone. Luckily there are still many some willing to put up with me. And make me food when I’m sulking on the couch.

The man-friend, aka Matt, made me this delicious stir-fry. It was a combination of fried pork strips with baby corn, red peppers and spinach served atop rice noodles. My taste buds are still dreaming of this dish.

My friend Laura gave me this HUUUUUGE zucchini from her garden. I know you can’t tell but it was seriously as long as my forearm and crazy wide. I used it for two meals. One of said meals was an incredible zucchini lasagna with chickpea filling. I ate it all. As in the entire lasagna, by myself, in 4 sittings. I cubed the rest of this zucchini monster and cooked them up to serve alongside cauliflower rice and sesame-soy crusted chicken tenders.

Then I came home from work one day and near polished off the entire container of these. Whoever came up with them definitely had me in mind. So thank you.

I hope this brief recap was worth the wait. I’ll get my crap together I promise.

Is anyone else super busy/exhausted this time of year?

  1. Haha, I don't even bother buying those Emerald nuts because I scarf them down in one sitting as well. Then I feel guilty for a good hour... Just an hour until I stock up again.

  2. Your manfriend is quite a cook. He should have a dinner party and invite me over to introduce me to his single manfriends.

    Sorry you're feeling exhausted. Hope it calms down soon!

  3. I've been out of my mind. I mean, I've been cooking (when I'm not on vacation), but they haven't really been blog-worthy "recipe" recipes. More just dump some stuff in a pot and call it a day.

    It happens to the best of us!

    That pork dish looks delicious, by the way.
