Do you have those moments where you walk into the kitchen and you think to yourself, “What the hell am I going to eat?” I mean, I suppose if that happens you can head on over to the P-Mag food archive if you feel like putting forth “effort,” whatever that is, but I’m talking about those times you know you want food in your belly but you have no desire to prepare food for the purpose.
When this happens to me, my default meal is always some sort of pasta. If I have to cook for my boyfriend, too, I will make marinara sauce to go with it because I don’t want him to realize I’m not actually trying, but if it’s just me, a bowl of spaghetti with butter and parmesan is my go-to meal. What about you? What is your default meal when you don’t have the energy to put thought into meal making?
