Weeknight dinners have become very difficult the past month. I normally enjoy preparing a nice meal for Hubby and myself in the evenings. But with my first-trimester exhaustion/nausea and Hubby’s recovery from having his wisdom teeth out, cooking has become much more of a chore.
However, I never thought it would come to this:
That’s right – last week, after a long day at work and an empty stomach, I resorted to (**gasp**) store-bought pasta sauce. It seems I only had enough energy for pouring something into a pan and heating, while waiting for pasta to boil. I’m still reeling from this experience, especially since my own homemade pasta sauce is kick-ass. I did try adding some extra spices to make it more bearable, but it just wasn’t the same. There’s got to be a better solution.
