I am living the single lady life this week! Wait.. should I be telling all my imaginary internet friends that? I mean I am living the single lady life (with 2 huge guard dogs) this week. Much better.
I don’t know why , but I seem to get a lot done when I’m all alone. Its not like Mr.PBandO its hovering around me, preventing me from doing stuff. Maybe its because I miss him, and I’m just trying to keep busy…. Awww…… ok that’s enough mushy stuff.
The other thing that happens when I’m on my own…. I can cook, bake, grill, fry anything I want.
I can cook up some curry, fry up some fish, I can even throw together some liver and onions. … well maybe not…
Mr. PBandO left last Wednesday, and in true, ‘I’m cooking just for me’ fashion, I made pumpkin curry, fish tacos, sweet potato gnocchi… you get the picture.
But tonight, I was craving something simple. And then I remembered this recipe. It’s actually one of Mr. PBandO’s favorites… well he likes it… which is huge in this house…. he can be… how do I put this… particular.
This is super easy to throw together. Definitely one of my go to meals. So if you’re in a pinch, this is your next meal.
