Wednesday nights usually require a little extra rushing. I typically get home from the gym around 8:15 and my husband gets home from work shortly thereafter. We are starting to get hangry by this point and dinner still must be made. So, either a little planning ahead or quick options are key. I got a couple of things ready to go before I left… pots and pans ready to go, water and salt in the pot for the red lentil pasta, and frozen shrimp defrosting.
I headed home after class as usual and as I put my blinker on to turn down my block I looked up to notice the street light was out. I drove past a house or two and it suddenly became clear that the block was pitch black and had lost power. It is so eerie when that happens! After thinking Bell must have been pissed she was alone in the dark, I immediately registered that dinner was going to be rough as we have an electric stove.
