Shortcut City at Weekly Open Thread

Were clearly in the wrong business, readers.

Its a good concept, admit it.

Something about the longer days gives me massive culinary lethargy — I'd rather have a drink on the porch than cook or even eat. So dinner sneaks up on me every night. It's pitiful.

Still, that's no excuse for this. There are times you need 5 ounces of chopped onion and celery in a hurry, such as prepping without a kitchen or a knife. But the $7 a pound price tag still rattles me. For that price, you can buy New York strip.

And sloth is no excuse for this either, though I confess to being curious and somewhat impressed with the ingenuity of canning a sandwich. It's not such a crazy idea — canned cheese, already a reality.

Back to the twilight hour — I'm dropping by Corner Market, Newk's, Which Wich, Lazzaroli. I'm buying double helpings from the food trucks at lunch, picking up barbecue from Judge Beans on the way home and serving it with carrot sticks. Hey, it's still nutritious, even if it's not glamorous.

The dinner scramble — what's your solution? And what else is on your mind? The weekly open thread is the sharing place.
