Lawn trumps Dinner

Last night the plan was to hit the Farmer’s Market for dinner, but Jenny reminded me that the lawn could use a mowing before the AR parents arrived today. So I fired up the ol’ Briggs & Stratton and gave the crabgrass a trim.

Instead of some fresh cod braised over succotash, we had frozen Trader Joe’s tamales. I threw together a little side-dish made of leftover brown rice from the previous night’s Thai takeout, a rinsed can of black beans, and the remnants of some homemade salsa verde. It was pretty tasty.
