Growing local

I found A Fajita kit in the back of the pantry today around 3 pm when I was seriously lacking inspiration for tonight's dinner.  Well, that's an easy answer.  I have some chicken breast in the freezer.  I know!  I'll duck out and get some greens from the garden .... and that was how the fritzing started!

Thinking about it, I also had some spinach wraps I wanted to use.  I'll just replace the burrito wraps from the kit with them.  Oh, damn.  My Saudi students cooked last night.  There's a tablespoon of tomato paste in a sachet and two thirds of a tin of diced tomatoes in the fridge.  Well, I won't need open the salsa pack either. Actually, that crappy spice mix they put in their sachet isn't half as good as real spices from the yard. I'll use my own turmeric and chili powders too.  

Chuck in that left over corn, a half capsicum, an onion, and a zucchini.  I also soured some greek yoghurt with some real squeezed lemon juice from the patch and used my home made sweet chilli sauce.  

Ah poor kit.  I wonder if you will ever be loved the way the factory meant?  Maybe next time?  Nah, probably not.
