In which I learn a thing or 2 about convenience foods

They are not always more convenient.
The origional plan for dinner this evening was a pot of soup - either pasta fagiole or Chicken Alphabet Noodle. Possibly a ham chowder. In a fit of industriousness I had even pre-chopped the vegetables.
While at the grocery store, I decided the soup idea was going to be too much work. I picked up some premade chicken sliders and frozen sweet potato fries (and tater tots too. Hey, I have a 6 year old. Dont judge me.) We needed a vegetable, so I opted for DH's favorite: broccoli rabe.
An hour later, everythings getting done at different times, I dirty 3 pots instead of 1 and I realized: shoulda gone with the soup.
