Last night I made a dish that we haven’t had in ages.
Everyone at the table kept remarking “Wow this is so good”.
Why had I not made it in such a long time?
It was one of those make in a hurry, please everyone kinda meals.
Sigh, the days when Bunny ate turkey and dinner was simpler……..
And don’t we tend to default to those dinners maybe a tad too many times?
Perhaps to the point that no one is excited about eating them anymore, and it gets pushed off to the sidelines.
And gets forgotten.
That’s what happened.
So although it was a big hit, I am not making it again for a few weeks.
Unless they beg me of course.
