That was tonight’s dinner. That’s the beef in cabernet stew with frozen peas throw in and a spoonful of mashed potatoes on top. The peas cook in the microwave in the stew, and I made the taters.

I got home and I was absolutely famished. As well as exhausted, and cold. We got a tiny bit of snow that turned into rain (and will continue to rain tomorrow) and it’s just gross out. All I wanted was creamy, buttery (cheesy?) carby goodness. In reality, what I wanted was polenta – that’s what Omar (my brother) cooks with the beef dishes, but I decided to raid the community pantry and found potatoes. And while I did eat probably the same amount or more potatoes as in the picture while I was making them, I feel like it’s a respectable balance of something sort of good for you and something baaaad for you. 🙂 (Because those potatoes have butter and half and half – the only decent fat level milk we had in the fridge – in them. )

Mmmmm….this may be lunch tomorrow since it’s going to be icky.
