Olive Oil Pasta with Walnuts, Lentils, and Red Peppers

He lifted his shirt and sucked in his stomach to emphasize his hunger while I gave him an unimpressed look suggesting that he should probably do something about it. After thinking back over the day’s events, he realized that he missed lunch on Saturday which probably explained for his lingering hunger! Whoa, whoa, whoa. How exactly does someone just forget to eat a meal? Personally, I have never quite understood this phenomenon, although it happens to Eric at least once a week.

I think it is a guy thing? Anyways, Eric was lucky that I had a couple beers in me because he was able to convince me to cook him something…at midnight. I had no plan.
