Thanks so much for all of your comments on the granola post!! I have read each and every 900+ one of them and they made my day so happy : ) Welcome to all the newbies + delurkers! Wish I could send a bag to each and every one of you.
I went to Whole Foods this afternoon to pick up a cart full of groceries. Last week I was able to get by on $15 of produce from Cville Market. No idea how! So this week I overcompensated and filled my cart with lots of goodies.
Because I know you guys are foodies…
- 3 Pink Lady apples
- 2 grapefruits
- A box of clems (!)
- Rainbow chard
- Brussels sprouts
- Sweet potatoes
- Mixed greens [the big tub]
- Mung beans
- Frozen corn
- Split peas
- Curry powder
- A half pound of cod
- Ham for a soup
- A bag of frozen wild caught shrimp (I spoke to the fish dept to try to find one that wasn’t from Asia and didn’t know there was a wild caught option – score! Love having shrimp for a quick dinner)
- 3 cans of beans for a quick chili
- Lemon hummus
- Tortillas for tonight’s dinner
- Stacey’s Pita Chips (had a FREE bag coupon!)
- Siggi’s (had a $1 off coupon)
- Giant tub of Oikos (no coupon – it’s delicious! I was on a Whole Foods Organic kick for a while which is much less expensive until Matt accidentally brought home an $8 tub of Oikos. Heaven help me I’m addicted to greek yogurt again!)
- 2 Kombuchas
- Box of Whole Foods brand Chex cereal (I’ve been craving cereal!)
I think that’s all? In case you’re wondering = $102
Upon arriving back home I had a quick snack of cereal and hot milk, my latest cold-weather favorite, while I caught up on comments.
Dinner was scheduled for Matt’s arrival at 7pm, so I put it together. I’m really no fancy cook, but I am very good at 10 minute meals!! This was one.
I seasoned our cod with a fish seasoning the Copper River folks sent me – it’s a combo of sugar, cayenne, salt, pepper, and more. Good!
In a pan on medium-high for 7 minutes per side (don’t try to flip too soon!). I added about 2 tsp of olive oil to begin.
In another pan, I sautéed some mung sprouts, carrots, frozen corn, green pepper and tomato in some olive oil – plus a bit more seasoning.
All assembled over a warmed tortilla
Notice that brown goo? That’s the brown bits on the bottom of the pan that Matt swooped in and de-glazed with Bourbon!!
The room smelled incredible!
Toppings included avocado, greek yogurt, sriracha and mixed greens on the side
Drizzled in a little honey + salt
Dessert was a clementine! Now that they are my dining room centerpiece, they are just too convenient to eat! Delicious.
Let the Hunger Games begin!*
*Don’t mean to sound excited about them given their nature, but love the book!
