Recovering After the Push

Missy, here. I just finished up a new proposal for a book I'm hoping to sell to Steeple Hill. After a big push like that (like after a book deadline or doing a new proposal), I usually take a day to pretty much collapse. To get caught up on laundry, cook a decent meal, make a full grocery store trip, spend some uninterrupted time with my family. I did that on Tuesday this week. It was so nice to take some time to rest.

But I haven't gone to the grocery store yet. So today for lunch (Wednesday), I did one of those "throw everything in but the kitchen sink" meals. :) I had some leftover spaghetti noodles, so I decided to make some sort of sauce. I had some grape tomatoes that needed eating, found some bacon, and decided to throw in some chopped up romaine lettuce. I sauteed the sauce in olive oil, then stirred in the noodles. I made BLT pasta! It was so, so good.

So what do you throw together when you're too busy to go shopping for ingredients?


  1. I hope you'll all share a meal you always fall back on when you haven't had a chance to go grocery shopping. Or the most creative thing you've come up with when you had to throw something together. :)

  2. BTW, today I finally made that grocery store trip. I bought the ingredients to make my BLT pasta again! :)

  3. Missy -- your BLT pasta sounds great! I'm afraid I don't get creative when I run out of food -- I just go to the store (if I only pick up a few things, I can be there and back in ten minutes) --

  4. Janet, I actually have a grocery store nearby, but I hate to go more than once a week! i'm stubborn. :)
