Brain Fatigue [May. 9th, 2011|11:53 pm]
Well, I forgot stuff at the store again. I have shoppers Alzheimer's. I suppose I can pick those things up tomorrow after I go to the chiropractor and get my head yanked about. They aren't heavy things. Broccoli crowns, pinto beans. Probably more that I haven't yet remembered that I forgot.

There was a list, too. How did I forget something that was written down? That means even tattooing the list on myself won't help. I need a brain implant of some sort. Something that will give me an electric shock when I pass an item on the list I've programmed into it but fail to take from the shelf. But I'd probably only forget to program the device.

Anyway, tonight I was going to have broccoli with pasta, but had to settle for pasta without broccoli. I could have used frozen peas, but they just aren't the same as broccoli. Whoever heard of pasta and peas? Oh, wait. The Internets did. But I had no basil, either. I'd have had to go out in the yard and pick some of those old yet tiny dandelion greens as a basil substitute.

I really can't cook any better than I can remember what to buy. Maybe I'll get some of my brain function back after I get my head yanked tomorrow. I won't hold my breath, though.

i think i have shopper's alzheimers too. as for the pasta with peas, it can be delicious! wouldn't bother with basil, even, just some butter (or what-have-you), a little milk and parmesan, and the thawed peas. well, now that i've typed that, i ought to go look at the link you provided... ok, close, but the basil would be optional. black pepper would be even better!

I've made pasta with peas, and it was pretty good. But not quite as good as pasta with broccoli.

My new phone has a function where you can make notes on a virtual sticky pad. I've started using that as my shopping list. Now all I need to to is to remember to virtually write things on the list.
