In general this hasn't been a problem and I've learned to be flexible in my meals. Apple Cinnamon Oatmeal for lunch? Sure! Chocolate cupcake as my source of grains for dinner? Why not! But there's only so long you can go before you start to sound a tad desperate...like when you have oatmeal for breakfast AND dinner.
Well today was not going to be one of those days! And other than being 5 minutes late for an intense "Gross Anatomy of the Central Nervous System" lecture, my day was leaning on the bright side. I woke up refreshed off of 6.5 hours of sleep, I got to hold a brain and a spinal cord in the neuroanatomy lab, and I went for a 6.9km run with some classmates followed by a shoulders workout.

Normally, frozen meat doesn't phase me. The issue here was the age of the frozen meat. I won't reveal too much but let's just say that I've had it since Med I. Enough said. However I figured that with enough spices, everything would turn out alright. Here's what I added to the sauce:
- a few whole cloves of garlic
- 1/2 red onion
- 1/2 tomato
- 2 small carrots, grated
- 1/2 can tomato sauce
- a few sprigs of cilantro
- a small handfull of spinach leaves
- 1 Tbsp honey
Everything looked good and smelled good. But how was the taste? Wellllll...the flavour of the sauce was good. As for the meat, I ended up leaving most of it to the side. It's unfortunate because had it been fresh I think this meal would have been a major winner! I'll definitely be giving it a fair second chance.
It's a sign...I think it's about time to get groceries...
