1 to 2 heads broccoli
8 hours work frustration
1 pound orzo, cooked according to package directions
3 minutes vending-machine lunch
1.5 cups shredded mozzarella cheese
Pinch of attention deficit
1.5 cups shredded cheddar cheese
2 teaspoons dangerous recipe hunting on iPhone whilst driving
1 (10.75-ounce) can cream of mushroom soup
Step 1: Chop broccoli.
Step 2: Examine broccoli more closely. Wonder why something that tastes so good smells so bad.
Step 3: Stack cheeses, preferably in a transparent container for easy admiration. Smack own hand to deter snacking.
Step 4: Stop to gawk at the cognitive dissonance that is Michael Jackson's memorial service. Ponder the crazy/touching, baffling/fitting, manic/sad spectacle. Pour more wine.
Step 5: Open can of cream of mushroom soup. Pat self on back for culinary prowess.
Step 6: Stir together soup, broccoli, cheeses, and pasta in a far-too-large casserole dish. Have passing thought that inappropriate size might affect outcome, but get distracted stopping dog from terrorizing cat.
Step 7: Cover (casserole dish, not cat) and bake at 350. For ... some ... time. NOTE: Do not place dish in oven if oven has had time to preheat. Do not use timer, or in any other way attempt to control how long dish will be in oven.
Step 8: Eat. Wonder why it's too dry. Assume the only way to find answer to said question is to consume three servings.
This recipe courtesy of an on-the-road Google search that led to Working Girl Cooks! All apologies to Working Girl, as I'm sure her dish was properly cooked and delicious, as opposed to Dinner As Mental Defect.
I'm off work for the next two days (WOO!), so posting may be spotty. Don't let your missing-me muscles start to atrophy.
