At 12:20, I grabbed my phone, texted Kim “see you at 12:30!”, and then quickly realized I left my wallet in the purse I took out last night. Ten minutes from meeting a new friend and… no money. Thankfully she understood and we’re rescheduling for next week!
But the whole no money thing meant having to rush home for lunch. I was instantly saved by a short commute and lots of frozen veggies.
FoodFash Veggie Orzo
1/3 cup orzo, uncooked
1/3 cup frozen asparagus
1/3 cup frozen spinach
1/2 tablespoon butter
1 slice of cheese (I used havarti dill)
Prepare orzo per the package instructions. During the last minute, toss in frozen veggies. Drain orzo and veggies and place into a bowl. Add butter and cheese and stir until melted.
I used the 1/3-cup measure for the veggies since it was already on the counter and it ended up being the perfect amount of green. You could also use broccoli/edamame/peas/any green veggie as well as any variety of cheese that you’re fancying at the moment.
Have you ever arrived somewhere and realized that you had forgotten your wallet?
