The Cooking Paradox

Every now and then, I decide to do some more elaborate cooking than my usual stir fries or pasta. Admittedly, I do make my own spaghetti sauce, but that's the sort of thing that one does in relatively large quantities and sticks in the freezer.

What inevitably happens is that, by the time I am done cooking, I've lost any interest whatsoever in eating whatever it was I just made and I end up opening a can or soup or making a tunafish sandwich for supper.

At least now I have a big bowl of tabouli and a small bowl of baba ganoush in the fridge to eat over the next few days. The latter is disappointing, however, as I put in too much tahini for the size eggplant I had. The former may have too much tomato, but that's a minor flaw. I may end up needing to exercise my usual rule of rescuing anything Middle Eastern - namely, there is no such thing as too much garlic and lemon.

I was also going to make a Thai-style curry (largely because of a can of curry paste I have had on hand for a while) but I think that will have to wait until Wednesday because after chopping more parsley than any one human should actually possess at a time I couldn't face cutting up the vegetables.
