What does my dinner choice say about me?

TheHusband was home late last night, so ThePinkThing and I ate on our own. TPT and I had artisanal pasta (thanks to the lovely Janiece) with Classico Sundried Tomato Alfredo Sauce, English hothouse cucumbers, and chicken nuggets with barbecue sauce. And we drank RED soda. Dessert was popsicles.

I am sure that the above combination of foodstuffs says something, but I just don't know what.

That artisanal pasta link doesn't work - and I really wanted to know what that is. :-)

I still have four jars of the Alfredo sauce in the pantry. My kids won't touch it. They are ridiculously spoiled creatures.

We had pasta and meat sauce, so we were close. No red soda, it makes my kids crazy. But we had fizzy apple juice (made with our own apple juice from last year)! And ice cream for dessert.

I should have remembered those jars when you guys were visiting. I'm sure I should throw them out by now...

I see nothing wrong with that menu at all. I'd go with eclectic, but sophiticated...

@ Claudia, if you canned the jars of Alfredo sauce it should be good for at least two years, if stored in a cool dark space.

If it is commercial it should have a date on it.

I can my wife's tomato meat sauce and it never lasts two years.

@neurondoc, whose chicken nuggets does make a difference. McD's aren't that good, or course I will eat them with barbque sauce.

Had lunch on Arthur Ave in the Bronx, vegetable antipasto plate, salumi and cheese antipasto plate and cold egg-plant, lettuce and tomato sandwiches. If somebody had told me this morning I would willing eat and like one of those sandwiches I would have laughed. Now I'm wondering if I can make one.

Perdue chicken nuggets. We don't like the McD's ones.

Claudia, try Pappardelles.com

NTSC, this is left-over store-bought variety Alfredo sauce which I had shipped as part of our consumables, two years ago. (We're people living in odd places where stuff can be hard to get.) I did that b/c I liked the one I had at Natalie's house and figured that in a crunch (or an earthquake, or a political coup or anything similar), a jar would be practical to have.

The jars went from behind Natalie's couch to Armenia and from there to Germany. I routinely forget they're there b/c my boys are very picky eaters and only like things they know. I'm a bit afraid to even approach those jars by now.

Living in Germany, I'd have to open them, discard the innards and recycle the jars and lids. I'm not sure I want to deal with this but I will have to at some point.

Natalie - you had your pasta flown in from NY? And your soda comes from Ohio? And your cucumbers from England? (England??) That is very sophisticated.

Heee. The pasta was a gift from a friend in Colorado. The soda, indeed, was from Ohio. The cucumbers are not from England, but they are called English hothouse cucumbers at the grocery store.

Claudia -- I'd empty those jars sooner rather than later...

I'd agree with eclectic - very fascinating. And kinda red/orange/pink. :)

Sometimes I wonder what my grocery cart says about me - health nut for me and prepared junk for the teen boy squad.
