But then I do something silly such as forgetting to soak my split peas overnight and I can’t make my intended supper. Instead I’m stuck with my less-than-substantial lunch leftovers and end up going to bed feeling unsatisfied. I turn in early because an evening without any pre-bedtime snacks seems unappealing.
