If you watch Triple D, known as Diners, Drive-ins & Dives to its less affectionate fans, which Food Network somehow conveniently broadcasts late at night (conspiracy I tell you…) you will relate to where I am coming from.
Tonight Guy, as he is oh so easily able to do, foiled my plan to close my kitchen for the evening and enjoy an order of takeout for the first time, in a long time. The vent fan went on, the gas on the Viking radiated heat in my most favorite color blue in the world, and I found myself cooking a hodge podge late night eat.
High class hodge podge of course….
It’s been one of those weeks. You feel lazy because your to-do list still sits with not one item crossed off, but you know that at most times you were actually so busy you forgot to breathe. This week I forgot to go grocery shopping, I didn’t get enough work done that I needed to do, I ate too much butter, and I didn’t get enough sleep. Yet, somehow I made a lot of progress with a couple of my projects. But back track to the forgetting to grocery shop… yea. Some food lover I am.
So tonight, as I sat there staring at Guy take bites big enough for a small army (ha.ha. Guy’s Big Bite?… I get it now) I knew I needed to think of some way to throw together what I had.
- A 3/4 of the way full carton of chicken stock
- 2 unfinished bottles of chardonnay
- 2 roma tomatoes… that looked half like prunes
- 1 tupperware of homemade pesto
