1. I decide to be a good person, prepare my own food, and not just eat chips and salsa.
2. I realize I have some salad in the fridge that needs eating… what goes with salad… pasta!
3. Once the pasta makings are out, I frown and decide I would rather have something else, like a quesadilla, which means I need to chop up some onion and tomato, and if I’m doing that, I may as well make guacamole with these two here avocados, because that goes with a quesadilla, and if I’m making guacamole I’d better have some of this new awesome salsa with the chips I just bought, and if I’m eating all that I won’t really have room for a salad.
Dinner: chips and salsa. (And a quesadilla with guacamole.)
