Alright. Again, I've been remiss in posting. In my defense, I wasn't cooking, followed by lots of cleaning, followed by a last minute vacation. Since I've been back- a few days- I haven't made anything to be proud of. In fact, I've tried everything in my power to not cook. Why? Because I don't wanna! I am also aggressively stamping my foot. However, I'm slowly starting to accept the fact that it's not so bad and that I've missed it lately.
Once I got home, I ate nothing but fast food, frozen pizza, and ramen noodles. Until yesterday. Oh yes. Actually, I surfed the Kraft food website. I hate even admitting that because it feels like cheating. I don't consider combining a box of this and a bag of that cooking. Of course, I am a snob that can't live up to my own standards. Oh well. I made a close approximation of this recipe and added steamed broccoli and a small can of water chestnuts. I am not impressed with the recipe. But OH MY GOD. Have you tried the salad dressing? I bought the pre-made and it is heaven. It's almost exactly the dressing they used on the mandarin chicken salads at Wendy's. I may end up buying a lettuce farm just for this dressing.
But this counts right? This is cooking? What with the boiling of noodles and steaming of broccoli? Please say it is. I mean, it's not doctored Ramen...
but it'll do.
