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.
