I was required to use up some fridge contents for dinner, which meant no pantry or freezer staples were allowed. I was thinking of a chicken sausage gumbo, but time ran out! Instead I made a delicious sandwich on some seeded grain bread Karen brought over along with a corn on the cob and some steamed veggies. Simple, summery.
Al Fresco Chicken Sausage with ketchup , mustard on bakery bread . The bread looks so artistic!
Corn , with Smart Balance and Crazy Salt. I’ve grilled corn before, but I wasn’t quite sure how to cook it indoors with the water boilage and all, so I did a Google search and found this great informational page: How to Cook Corn on the Cob . I often Google something I haven’t cooked before to see how others do it and figure out the most efficient and tasty method.
And a "steam in the bag" green bean, carrot and wax bean blend that I picked up for quick weeknight dinners. Also with Smart Balance and Crazy Salt –
From above, with my packed snack….
Honest Foods Farmer’s Trail Mix bar . I saved this to eat after Chemistry but I couldn’t resist and ate it 40 minutes early because class was draggggggging. It was great!!! It reminded me of an almond cookie – I can’t remember what they’re called – it kind of tasted like marzipan!? I really love these bars’ texture in general- they are moist and chewy and last a while. I think the Apple Cinnamon is still my favorite.
