Cooking with Abbi II

Tonight's theme was similar-looking foods. I made sure everything was lumpy, round and beige.

Couscous

Chicken burgers

Cookies

People would have paid big bucks for this if it were served at Nobu. And just as if it had been in front of celebrities, the meal remained untouched.

Just kidding.  For the record, I do not have OCD and insist that all of my foods start with the same letter of the alphabet.  I happen to be cooking recipes that involve ingredients I already have at home.  As the cupboards get bare you will see increasingly bizarre combinations.   

All aboard!  This train is about to leave Rationalization Station:
  
1. I opted not to add a vegetable because the couscous came with broccoli bits. Shriveled, brown, microscopic broccoli bits.  

2. The cookies are peanut butter, which just adds protein.

3. Hey, it's the only thing my kid eats.  I have to give him SOMEthing, Dr. Phil.  I mean (hands on hips, looking to the sky and back at you) I can't let him STARVE for heaven's sakes!

Although I object to using the term "cookie" to describe something that doesn't have chocolate chips. It's more like sweetened hard tack.

And don't get me started on oatmeal "cookies"

Oatmeal cookies are deceptively disgusting.

LOL. I don't even want to know what a couscous burger is. Vas-y is French for "Go ahead." Maybe I should change it to the more formal Allez-y.
