It might look like I cook a lot, but truth be told, I’m a pretty lazy cook. Seriously. Yesterday started off promising. I normally make scrambled eggs for breakfast because it’s easy. Crack some eggs into a pan, scramble. But I went out on a limb and made a smoothie.
This was Laura’s Carrot Cake Batter Shake. It had whipped cream because it was Sunday and that made it acceptable. I don’t know why I think that making a smoothie is any more difficult than making eggs. Really, it’s because I hate that I can’t put the Vitamix in the blender. First world problems, I know.
I had this grand plan that I was going to make this delicious looking salmon recipe for dinner. I had even bought myself a nice piece of salmon the day before. But then, somehow, I ended up mixing a can of tuna with some hummus and calling it dinner instead. Salmon, tuna, same thing? Eh.
So, today I was determined to make the salmon, mostly because it had already been in the fridge for two days and I needed to cook it before it started to go bad. But once I looked at the recipe a little closer, I realized it seemed sort of complicated and did not jive with my lazy girl cooking style. So what did I do? I put some onion dip (Sabra Greek Yogurt onion dip which is awesome) on the salmon instead. Fancy salmon recipe, onion dip salmon recipe, same thing too, right?
I did saute some kale with some onions and mushrooms and olive oil as a side. I decided, however, that I wanted to put it under my onion dip salmon to make a pretty salmon salad so it could at least look like I was a non-lazy cook.
Pretty, but genius here forgot that my salmon had skin on it, so after I ate it, I had to take the skin off the kale and throw it away before I ate the kale. Oops. This is what happens when I try to be ambitious.
