Anyway, I'm very pleased with the meal I've thought of and halfway put together to feed the godkids and porphyrin and Mike tonight, but I'm a little alarmed that it seems to use all the food in the house. Here is what is in my produce drawers now: one partial head iceberg lettuce, one partial bag pearl onions. That is it. When I smelled the csabai and the gruyere together, I thought, "Oh yes, this is going to be the best mac 'n' cheese ever." I'm just a little taken aback at the number of things that went in it or its accompanying salad, and at the emptying whoooosh of the fridge and pantry. So it's a very good thing they have stores to fix this problem. Because wow.
Usually I say I've bought all the food in the world (or, these days, sent timprov to do so), so I suppose it was bound to balance out somehow.
Just think if I had energy! Then there would be wild rice pudding or who knows what. But it turns out the godkids like ice cream, so that's all right.
