Do You Doctor?
...e.g. dropping some peas and carrots into a pack of Ramen Noodles, that sort of thing. Sure, cooking it's not, but it is a way to turn a drab and pre-fab into something semi-fab(ulous) that you came up with on your own. This evening I picked up some petite peas for a fettucine dish I plan on making later in the week, but since I haven't had peas in a while, couldn't resist adding some to my instant Mushroom and Herb Risotto (courtesy of Trader Joe's). Topped off with Barefoot Contessa's lemon chicken (super simple recipe- let it marinate overnight and grill the next day), I felt satisfied, and more importantly, accomplished!
