I Made Mischief After All!

I want it on record that yesterday I was very good and did not add any mischief to the cabbage goop the humans made for dinner. Aside, that is, from filching some of the toasted almonds–but that didn’t affect the finished dish, so it doesn’t really count.

Confession time, though… There were some Loki fingerprints on the operation.

You see, the humans–demonstrating organization in one facet of their lives, at least— make up their shopping list for the week on Monday nights. They decide what they’re going to eat for the week, TAking into account what they’ve been craving, what they already have on hand, what the weather is going to be, any specials the stores are having, and any activities they might be doing. They even keep a running list of meal ideas, including new recipes they want to try.

Last week, the human male had come up with two recipes that looked worth trying, the Caramelized Cabbage and Walnut Almond Pasta that they actually made:

and this one, which was also Brassicaceous in nature:

But when they were making the list, they were both really tired–they both taught a class Monday night, and it was late, so it was laughably easy for me to befuddle them. With a nudge from me they got the two recipes confounded, resulting in this:

See that? Just below my godly hand? That’s the human female’s writing. It resulted in this:

Ehehehe! Extraneous tofu! It was meant for the salad recipe, the one they didn’t make. They could have made it, yesterday, but they also had the leeks, which wouldn’t keep as well and which take up a ton of room in the fridge, so they made the other cabbage goop.

Now they have to figure out what to do with 14 oz of bean cheese.

This messing with the menu is fun! I think I’ll do it again tomorrow!
