The extreme heat has made me super lazy and super slow moving. I came home after work and had to cook something quickly. Fortunately I had saved some meatballs in the freezer, so I defrosted them and prepared some κριθαράκι - kritharaki or μανέστρα - manestra to go with them.
Whenever I don't feel like eating the same food twice, I store it in the freezer for days like this when I'm either too bored to cook or short in time...
For the κριθαράκι - kritharaki dish, I sautéd one cup of pasta in a tablespoon of margarine and then added four cups of water, salt, pepper, a pinch of curry, a pinch of smoked paprika and two beef stock cubes.
And of course we wouldn't leave the salads out. Some tomato and cucumber salad, a baked red Florina pepper, a little feta cheese and we end up with a lunch fit for kings!!
What was on your table today?
See you tomorrow!!
