The night after I got back from Austin, I had the usual post-travel downer of having to find dinner materials in my kitchen despite near complete exhaustion and after a long string of restaurant meals. As a bonus, a colony of tiny ants were putting on a rolling photoshop marquee tutorial in my sink. Gross. Usually these conditions would force me out of the house to grab an eggplant sub and a slice, but I looked in the freezer and cupboard and was surprised and delighted to find plenty of choices. Pre-trip me, you sly devil. I guess I had gone shopping the night before I left for Austin, and forgot all about it. Lifehack to remember: always stock up on good non-perishable choices the night before a trip.
