the plan.

On Tuesday, we planned to have the infamous steak salad for dinner.

On Tuesday afternoon, I ran into this post and plans changed.

On Tuesday evening, Whole Foods almost ruined the plans by being out of cumin. My lack of organization saved the plans when I found cumin in the waaaaaay back of the spice cabinet.

The plan was saved! The plan was eaten.  Along with big salads and polenta topped with parmesan.

The plan looked something along the lines of this:

The plan was good. REALLY good.
