Last week when I was coming home late from work and it was just the two of us, I took Lindsay out to dinner. We went to a place we'd only been to once a few years ago. Turns out, I loved it. I didn't remember what my problem with it was the last time, but Lindsay was happy to remind me that it was the cost - it's a bit pricey. Apparently cost isn't that much of an issue for me anymore. Anyway, I had a salad with blackened salmon and it was phenomenal. The next night I was even later coming home and I collapsed in my chair complaining about the long day and that I just realized I was hungry. Rob started naming off restaurants and asking what kind of food I wanted and I just wanted that same salmon I'd had the night before. I had the same blackened salmon but this time over rice and orzo with roasted asparagus. Again it was fabulous. Sigh....
Lindsay doesn't like fish or seafood - except canned tuna, she'll eat that - so making it at home is argument provoking. There's always some sort of fast-cooking chicken in the fridge so making her a different entree shouldn't be a big deal. Rob and I talked a little about eating more fish, especially fish high in omega-3 fatty acids.... for us that means tuna and salmon because the other choices aren't all that appetizing. Except trout, but eating it from a grocery store isn't appetizing.
What I'm getting at is that my meal plan should have more fish in it, but I doubt I'll be grocery shopping this week because of a snowstorm, a flat tire, and a missing paycheck. Basically I have zero time and we'll have to eat out of the freezer and pantry this week. God, I wish we could just eat out every day this week. It would be so much easier.
