    I just ate two double chocolate chunk cookies, and I probably won't eat anything else tonight because I had a rather satisfying lunch. I shouldn't get in the habit of not eating anything after work, though, because then I might be too hungry in the morning.

    I lied to you and myself. I'm making the fattest bowl of lo mein with edamame and a very lazy peanut sauce.

    I gave my dog dog food from a can for the first time in her life last night and she just looked at me in horror then walked off in disgust. She wouldn't eat it and I don't blame her.

    I always found that pizza slice creepy. When did we start sexualising food, and why? :confused:

    Though the Cheese Strings advert was worse IMO. That food is aimed at children FFS!

    I know, I went looking and found a couple of ads with a little girl disappearing into a shopping bag and going through a string cheese world, but nothing inappropriate.

    I had a peanut butter and jelly roll-up (just peanut butter and jelly smashed together in a tortilla like a burrito because I fuckin' can) and the rest of my Triscuits I bought to have some "healthy" snacks. Gah, they sure get you with that labeling, don't they?

    That (triscuits) was my snack of choice tonight too, while I finished off Locke and Key on Netflix. I put a specialty sweet and hot relish on them as a spread and it was delicious.

    I was referencing a British advert where the Cheese string is wearing Speedos on a beach.

    I always found the Peperami adverts to be sinister as well, but for different reasons.

    OT, however: I cooked pasta last night, and brownies. Let's see how long the brownies last. :rolleyes:

    Pizza. Does that count? I'm putting it in the oven myself.

    I made chocolate pancakes with black cocoa powder for a food photo shoot for my recipe collection. I like tinkering with variety.

    For dinner, I made rice noodles in a chicken miso broth with seaweed garnish and chicken dippers as an alternative to tempura.

    Liquidating the fridge of leftovers and perishables before I re-up the inventory tomorrow. So it looks like some blackened chicken with the rest of the chipotle red sauce and the tomatillo green sauce. Kind of like an enchilada set up, but not exactly. Prob got enough lettuce varietals left for some kind of salad.

    I also have 37 eggs with another 5 dozen or so in the restaurants walkin that are about to turn. Along with 200# taters... probably some omelettes and homefries in our future.

    Chili! I made my famous (?) chili! A big pot, so it will last maybe a week, if I serve it on rice. I'm about to make tonight's rice. Dinner in 45 minutes.

    I might be a little late, so could you put a cover on my plate?

    I ordered pizza because I didn't feel like cooking and my stomach hates me for it. Holy cheese, I'm uncomfy. Why do I do this to myself?

    I didn't used to care for it much until I got saddled with two cases of it from the restaurant. Fortunately, a 2# bag of it cooks down to like 4 servings. I do oil, garlic and chicken stock.

    Nice thing about spinach and similar utilitarian vegetable sides is that it cooks down in a perfect 5 minutes, so if you got three pans and two ovens going, you know what the spinach is going to do. And if you drag another dish the spinach will hot-hold for like another 20 minutes with only minimal degradation in quality. Not like risotto... you fuck up your timing or plating with risotto and it will turn into bullets.
