Dinner a la Lazy Man

With this weekend's final winter share pickup just around the corner combined with a busy work week I was forced to cut some corners this evening. I promise that the next three nights will be markedly more interesting culinarily.

But for now, let's phone it in!

For a salad I used some beet greens combined with our slowly dying mixed greens, some almonds, tomato, lemon, and olive oil.

So that was the salad. And you know what that means! Another episode of Space Phalanx: The Human-Zzintar Wars!

When we last left our hero we had just learned his name, so he was still pretty new to us. Also, he hadn't really done anything yet that would identify him as a hero. So we'd better get around to that.

Calcitron, the evil ruler of the insectazoid Mentarillians, stroked his mandibles thoughtfully. "Zahr'ring'ih! Come to my throne and inform me of the goings on in the Trellingi Galaxy!"

An insectazoid toady gamboled horizontally over to High Lord Calcitron's throne which was made out of the skulls of people he'd conquered! "Yes, Lord Calcitron?" He bowed, then rubbed at one of his many segmented eyes.

"We have an enemy in the human resistance. His name is Kintaur Rosenbaum! We must find him and teach him that the Mentarillians are insectazoids that are not to be trifled with."

"Yes, master," Zahr'ring'ih said, rubbing two of his antennae together in a conniving manner. "Rosenbaum will feel the true rath of the Mentarillias and this Human-Zzintar Wars will tilt into our favor!"

"Ha ha ha ha ha ha ha!" They both said.

Tune in soon for the next exciting chapter of Space Phalanx: The Human-Zzintar Wars!

For the main course I purchase a pre-cooked rotisserie chicken, some pre-cooked cornbread, boiled some of the beets, and baked a potato. There is something extra delicious about a chicken that someone else has cooked. It tastes like laziness.

The cornbread was particularly tasty. I will have to make up for it soon by actually making something. Still, all the groceries for dinner cost me less than $10.00. It's hard to top that.

Tonight either Time Warner or our crummy, lousy TiVo that I hate is broken so we only have about three channels accessible to us which means no hockey game. Instead we'll have to catch up on our previously recorded shows and/or movies. That, or play the recently released update for Fieldrunners.
