My birthday was last week and my wonderful boss (no I'm not kissing up) gave me a gift card to Macy's. I went on their website and found they had this Cuisinart 7 cup food processor on sale. I got there just in time because I got the LAST ONE! I'm so happy. I've been wanting one of these forever, but just never got around to getting myself one. I can't wait to CHOP things!
What a long day today was. I knew I had to stop at the grocery store after work and the thought just exhausted me even more. Funny enough, Trader Joe's has a way of energizing me. Once there, I thought I'd see how many dinners I could get for the hubby and me at a budget of $50.00. Turns out, the answer is six! I wanted to share, especially for some of my friends back in my hometown of Omaha, who recently just got a Trader Joe's. I've had a few of them ask me what's good. Well, here you go!
|First up, linguine with pesto and we'll have steamed broccoli to go with it. Light, simple meal.|
|Next? Marinated grilled eggplant and zucchini paired with chicken cooked in a Masala Simmer Sauce and served over Jasmine rice. The chicken will be divided up into two dinners - we'll probably bbq the other half.|
|Steak and potatoes for my "meat & potatoes" hubby. The steak was a bit of an indulgence, but you gotta have that once in awhile.|
|Pork cutlets along with artichokes. Just exactly what I'll do with these two items, I have yet to figure out.|
|And for the night we're feeling lazy - Trader Joe's Orange Chicken - this is one of our favorites there.|
|The grand total!|
