Bad Turned Good

I arrived home from a long day at school and opened a bill that nearly caused me vomit. It's not that it was unexpected, it's just that the money that I had planned to pay this particularly painful credit card off with has been held by a certain government agency (no names mentioned) for the last month and I was pretty much convinced that they were going to decide against giving me the money. Long story short, I hopped online to check the status of my moolah after groaning over the bill and hallelujah!! What are the chances that today happens to be the day that they finally deposited the money in my bank account?! Honestly, what the? Needless to say I am one happy woman.

It gets better.

When it comes to material things in this world money is certainly high on the top of my list of wonderful things. Take a moment to think this through before you judge!! I didn't say it was number one on my list of important things in life, I said MATERIAL things and in order to gain material goods you generally need money. Second on my list of material fabulousness is food. Technically this would be number one but without the moolah I wouldn't be eating much.

Where was I going with this? Oh yeah, me going from near barfage to happy happy.
Mike is away all this week on business which leaves me eating on my own. I have no problem eating alone but lately since I don't get home until late and then have a pile of homework to complete it seems that every time I have had an alone meal I end up eating Kraft Dinner. Don't get me wrong, I love KD, it brings back waves of pleasant childhood memories but eating it more than once every couple weeks is not acceptable. I like to savor it and don't want to ruin the experience by overindulging. Point being, I wanted to avoid KD this week so on the way home from school (pre-near vomiting bill opening) I stopped at Zehrs to pick up a few quick meals.
Oh... my... GOD. Someone told me ages ago to try the President's Choice Thai Green Curry Shrimp meal but I didn't listen. What the hell is wrong with me?! I have found my new favourite thing.
In just 6 minutes (5 minute cooking, 1 minute sitting) I had some of the best green curry ever! I loooooooooove green curry, it's one of my top three Thai dishes so imagine my delight in finding the easiest meal on earth in just my flavor! Amazing! Is it low calorie? Not at all but neither is Kraft Dinner so there.

A great start to my week, let's just hope this luck continues.

I'm so glad you got your money!
I'm also glad you tried the green curry--I don't think I was the one who told you about the PC Thai dishes, but I do like them a lot, too. I miss them. :(
Also, it sounds weird but their Nan Tandoori "pizza" is really quite yum also.
Great. Now I'm hungry and it's 11pm.

P.S. Love the bracelet you tagged from Etsy. Gorgeous taste, gorgeous one!

That looks so good! I'm amazed at how tasting some of these quick meals are. They have definitely improved over the years!

Maybe Kraft will come up with a green curry version of KD? Ew, I just grossed myself out.

I also recommend PC's wood fired 4 cheese pizza. Perfect for one!

I agree with Kim. The PC wood fired 4 cheese pizza is really yummie....mmmmmmmmmm.
I am glad you got money. Money is always good. Anyone who says money isn't everything obviously has money so they can afford to toss it off as a nothing,no big deal thing. Please, if you are one of those people and happen to be reading this blog, toss the money my way...LOL!
As for the green food, a wise one once said..."I do not like green eggs and ham"...You say curry I say eggs and ham. ee...hee...hee...
Way to go J!
