A left-over and looked-over meal
Last night I made a braised sweet aji-mirin, soy chuck roast. Last night I also discovered that the roast was frozen solid and took 1-1/2 hours to cook. Last night, dinner became instant leftovers.
Last night we had free pizza from our apartment complex in honor of the (insert season appropriate sports association) championships. Go Bears! Just kidding. Go Cardinals!
Tonight, Faye and I made dinner with the leftover braised roast and decided to use this opportunity to clean out the fridge a bit more. Since, the mini zucchinis were making eyes that threatened to summon what little strength still lay in their quickly slackening bodies to poke me in the eye, I threw them into a frying pan before they could make good on it with thin slices of the braised roast, steamed rice, slammed them together, and voila!, dinner with both eyes intact. This is usually how my lunches are made, the forgotten pieces of veggies, fruit, or meat on the edge of their prime, and that’s the best way to make sure nothing goes bad.
It was exactly the fuel we both needed before hitting the pool!
