Easy peasy lemon squeezy. I'm starting to notice that the more I cook, the more ingredients I have on hand, the less I have to buy. This week only required shopping for two items - snow peas and chicken ground. The recipe called for two scallions and, well, you can't just buy two scallions. I had no idea what I would have done with leftovers so I 86'd the scallions.
Side note - while looking up how to correctly write out "86'd" I found this small tidbit of information:
To get rid of, originally for killing someone. The phrase "80 miles out and 6 feet under" was reserved for someone who had to dig their own grave 80 miles from civilization and then get shot execution-style. All terms for 86'd originated from this, be it alcohol or eliminating.Weird. Anyway...
While shopping for the 1/2 lb of snow peas that I needed, I came thisclose to doing an iPhone search. The last time I bought snow peas, I remembered it coming in 1 lb packages. When I turned the package over to see 8 oz, I did a double take. I almost pulled up Google to search conversion tables - and then I thought to myself don't be an idiot, you know this. No iPhone searches and no calls home. Go me!
