I'm tired, I'm cranky, and I just don't feel like stopping by the store or a takeout place on the way home. I've tried to brainstorm dinner ideas, but when I close my eyes, I see spreadsheets and unending email chains.
Help me Chowhounds; you're my only hope!
I've got a pint of lovely Sun Gold cherry tomatoes and a very nice unknown variety eggplant that I'd like to eat tonight. I also have onions and fresh garlic. Maybe a lime or two, but little else in the way of produce. Garbanzo beans in the pantry, along with a pretty substantial collection of spices. Also in the pantry: pasta, brown rice, quinoa, and farro (which I bought on a whim and have no idea what to do with.) In the freezer, I have uncooked shrimp, and some wild salmon, but I'm fine with a vegetarian meal. Oh, and I think I have a radish rolling around the fridge. Bonus point for that using that one (just kidding, please don't make me eat the radish.)
I just want something quick and tasty, that won't fry too many more brain cells. Any ideas?
