Thursday, June 17, 2010 Dinner for Two

Somehow this week I ended up with no guests. Which is fine with me. Better I realized it Tuesday than waiting until Thursday night at 7PM when no one has yet to show up. That almost happened Blueberry Night, and I would have gotten a little steamed if I'd made all that food and no one came.

So the Twisted Comfort menu is on hold until next week.

I took advantage of the extra time to make a batch of homemade granola. It's super good, way better than any store bought granola bar. I see lots of these in my future, with lots of flavor combinations!

Tonight we plan on a BBQ-4-2 at the beach.

But, I must confess, on a daily basis, I find myself standing in the aisles of the supermarket staring dumbfounded, unable to think of a fucking thing for dinner.

Crazy, isn't it?

I can plan a six course dinner for six people but I can't figure out how to feed two people a simple meal.

My mind gets stuck on old standbys, I'm unable to think out of the box and I end up with the brilliant idea of pizza delivery.

I need to work on this.

What do you do? Do you have a set meal schedule? A list of go to dishes? Or do you cook off-the-cuff?

I usually walk the market and see what looks good on the protein front.....I always have some side dish staples that work out well with anything

Speaking which, I made your Lemon Thyme Zucchini dish yesterday :)

That's a good way to attack dinner...I'll have to try thinking in those terms.
