Meals. We made them.
What we ate from the pantry this week: penne, chili-lime chicken burgers.
Saturday – Ahi Tuna Bowls, Trader Joe’s Chicken Cilantro Mini-Wontons
Sadly, this was the last of the ALDI ahi tuna. It was delightful and such a nice date night-in for the two of us!
Not pictured: My favorite bottle of pinot noir from TJ’s.
Sunday – Garden Pie, Tollhouse Bars
True story: I made a pair of Garden Pies for our freezer and this batch of bars for my department’s annual Doritos Potluck. I found the bar recipe in a small cookbook that my mother-in-law hand-wrote for my husband when he got his first apartment. They are delightful and I plan on making them
always again always.
Sunday –Channa Masala with Steamed Broccoli, Rice, and Trader Joe’s Garlic Naan
I doubled this recipe so that I could put a few containers of Channa Masala in our freezer. For the amount of extra work it takes (really quite minimal) it seemed silly to just cook a single batch.
Tuesday – Trader Joe’s Chili-Lime Turkey Burgers, Garlic Roasted Cauliflower, Oven Fries
Wednesday – Salad, Asparagus, Goat Cheese and Lemon Pasta
I think I saw this one when I was cruising Smitten Kitchen because I was looking for a fast weeknight pasta dinner. It was a very light sauce, but definitely a tasty (and enjoyable!) dish. Since we’re out of town this weekend, it even made enough that I could freeze a container. I will note that honestly, I would be tempted to mix the goat cheese-tarragon-olive oil-lemon zest situation up as a dip for a party. It could still happen someday.
