to use up leftover ingredients from other meals was the goal for last monday night’s dinner. yet as dinner time approached a jar of paul newman’s vodka sauce was seriously tempting me. but i made what was planned because i knew i’d just get mad at myself if those ingredients went bad before i used them up. on the menu curried egg salad on an everything bagel with a spinach salad, which included a little homemade balsamic vinaigrette. and i’ll admit although i wasn’t excited about it, when i looked down at my plate i knew i had made the right dish for the night.
