Dinner on the run

Three nights in a row, I’ve grumbled, mumbled, bumbled my way to getting dinner on the table.  Leftovers saved me on Tuesday.  Wednesday I threw together that fried-rice dish lickety-split.

Substituted raw sliced sugar snap peas for the frozen peas.  The locally harvested shrimpmeat (tiny little things) was a nice touch. Left the dish steaming in the wok to dash out the door to book club.  Scooped out some to nibble in the car. Quite worth the effort.  Check it out:

But tonight, not so great. Another dinner on the run: Fried chicken, potato salad and broccoli slaw from the Safeway deli.

And then we have Friday. Always a toss-up, depending on my energy level.
