Our last meet of the season over, we came home ready for lunch. I was opening cabinets and the refrigerator, wondering what to make, when my husband said "sit down. I got it."
Well, OK then! I did sit down. 30 minutes later we sat down to a lunch consisting of:
Little frozen pizza bagels
IKEA swedish meatballs
It was strangely delicious. I'd forgotten that I'd bought a big frozen bag of IKEA meatballs, with accompanying Lingonberry jelly, and the edamame was the perfect side dish. I could (and do) eat piles of edamame. Sadly, I'm ordinarily not one of those people who get cravings for salad and other healthy foods. I often wish that 3:30 would find me thinking "Damn. If I don't get some celery, organic blueberries, and a handful of unsalted almonds in five minutes, there's going to be a mass shooting". Edamame is the exception. And this is why I'm pretty sure that I'll awaken one morning, turn on the Today show, and hear the headline "Edamame: THE DEADLIEST LEGUME! Right after your local news!"
