Seven Twelve Feels Like Three Weeks Five of Bossy’s Cook The Entire Contents Of Her Cabinets Challenge!
When last we left Bossy she was sitting in a pile of defrosted Sweet Italian Sausage:
And then the family enjoyed a few nights of defrosted blah blah braised in blah with blah. And then one evening Bossy found herself home alone. So she opened her cabinet to scan her many choices:
Then Bossy pulled this package from her shelf:
Bossy read the directions:
And then she spread the delectable ingredients out on her counter:
The first thing Bossy needed to do was open the package of
hermetically sealed brains noodles with her fancy Kitchen Shears:
Once open, Bossy placed the
lower intestines noodles into her microwave saucepan:
Next Bossy opened the packet containing the Thai sauce. Do you know the smell of wet cat food? In Thailand? With extra sugar?
To counteract the delicate texture of the
Tapeworms noodles, Bossy decided to add some juliened Julianna julienne broccoli:
And finally the meal was complete!

I’m playing this game right now in the last 4 days before we pick up and move 3 hours away. I have waaaaay more food here than we can even go through. I am a hoarder. My pantry looks much like yours. In fact, in the name of reducing inventory, I just finished a boxed thai noodle dish very similar to the one you pictured… for breakfast. Except that I have a microwave.

I applaud your intrepidness (is that a word?) in actually cooking for yourself when alone. When it’s just me, it’s all I can do to convince myself that Jalepeno-flavored potato chips, spinach/sour cream dip, and Mother’s Animal Cookies do, indeed, fulfill all the requirements along the USDA food pyramid.

See, you actually have food in your cabinets.
If I tried this little exercise, I’d have Coffee & Cheerios Soufflé.
nutmeg saysMay 8, 2007 at 11:59 am
I’d eat that in a New York minute. Of course, I’d eat Meghan’s coffee and cheerio suuffle if I didn’t have to cook it!
How do you go about collecting your Megs?

intrepidosity…. I think that’s the word moi is looking for…. Bossy’s intrepidosity is impressive.
BTW when was the last time you ate cat food in
maggie saysMay 8, 2007 at 12:55 pm
Yum, tapeworms with arugula!
I think one eats salad to DEgrease one’s wheels. It’s like eating a potscrubber.

Why were no capers added to those fine intestines? Inquiring minds want to know.
Lauren saysMay 8, 2007 at 1:37 pm
No microwave? I’m impressed.
The sausage dish looks delicious, except I’m not sure about the arugula leaves floating in it. . . Did you know you can make arugula pesto? Also you can stir fry it very briefly. Capers are good tossed with spaghetti and olives and garlic. I should really try this exercise of yours. Inspiration strikes.

Have you checked the expiration dates on any of those items in your pantry?????
Tracy saysMay 8, 2007 at 4:49 pm
My goodness Bossy is so talented! I’ve always held that the difference between someone who can cook and someone who can’t is the ability to look in the fridge/pantry/freezer and see a meal rather than ingredients. I can look and say, “There is NOTHING to eat in here!” Husband looks and says, “I’ll have three courses in about 15 minutes.”

In the words of Rachel….YUMMO!
Robin saysMay 8, 2007 at 6:56 pm
Needs some capers.
Adorable Girlfriend saysMay 8, 2007 at 7:30 pm
Bossy, I don’t think that Pork is a good idea. You know, given that Passover is just about 11 months away.
Kirsten saysMay 8, 2007 at 9:30 pm
Very clever combining the salad with the brains. Very, very clever.
mcewen saysMay 8, 2007 at 10:32 pm
I keep buying those TJ meals in the hope that some time soon I’ll be able to eat them [hidden in the garage to prevent mental torment] and now, there you are with food all over your site! Is there no escape!
Lotta saysMay 8, 2007 at 11:23 pm
Bossy – I found you via Oh The Joys and I must say…Bossy rocks.
Michael Bains saysMay 9, 2007 at 10:34 am
What the..? No bean sprouts?
Wet Thai cats go very well
with kosher capers!
the new girl saysMay 9, 2007 at 11:48 am
I LOVE the kitchen cabinet updates!
annie saysMay 9, 2007 at 12:40 pm
They are not “packages” they are “sachets”.
That sounds REALLY effeminate…

This post made me shoot coffee out of my nose, and it HURT!
