Just the thing for a weekend lunch when I was in “lock-down” mode at home on a writing deadline.
I try to think ahead on Fridays, and take home a sandwich from the Café if I know I’ll be too rushed to make lunch the next day. When I’m busy writing about food the last thing I want to do is…cook!
It’s true – I have a lot less time for cooking since I started writing about it. Don’t get me wrong, I cook, but it tends to be very quick and simple things, and I often augment with short-cut items here and there (like that frozen grilled zucchini and eggplant from Trader Joe’s I like so much). I miss that cooking time, but look foward to getting it back someday when I retire from that day job. Then I can walk the foodie walk, whereas now I often feel I just talk the talk! (And there will be walking galore, I assure you!)
