… with Google. Really. It’s me and the internets, our initials carved in some innocent, unsuspecting tree.
On my way home tonight, thinking about what to have for dinner that could carry over to lunch tomorrow. I wanted to do something with lentils. Oh, what about those carrots and the rest of that flat-leaf parsley? And wouldn’t I like some bacon (because everything is better with bacon, n’est-ce pas¹)? What on earth can I make with all of that? I’m sure there’s nothing.
Typed that laundry list into Google and found half a dozen excellent-sounding recipes! I always forget about this option until I reach a point of desperation (read: when I’m too tired to think and can’t bear the thought of lifting a cookbook and searching).
I went with the straight-to-the-point “Lentils-n-Bacon.” All those ingredients plus thyme, onion, garlic and pepper, a few alterations that I thought of in process … et voilà²: a yummy-like-nobody’s-business dinner!
There are plenty of things I don’t love about my new paramour, but I can’t think of any of them tonight! What dining delights has Google revealed to you?
