The current Healthy Lifestyle Bandwagon we've jumped on requires a load of planning and a plethora of odd ingredients. If Hy-Vee or Kroger were around the corner this would be absolutely no issue at all. Sadly, that is not the case here in our little neck o' the desert.
One side note: Currently it's my turn to take something delectable to my landlord's family. I have their plate. I've been waiting to make a "hit" and then share it with them…however, the last couple attempts would not give American cuisine a good name. I simply can't in good conscience hand over something to them that tastes bad and let them think this is our country's food. It wouldn't be good foreign relations. You're welcome.
