Finally making my BLTs tonight before all my tomatoes go bad. I already had to throw some out and u had to put the rest in the fridge bc the fruit flies were everywhere. Cottage cheese and pineapple on the side.

Oh and I also made chocolate chip cookies. I used whole wheat white flour. I've never done this before, I usually use unbleached flour when making cookies but they turned out good!

Food Truck Friday! Horribly bad for us, but delish. Chicken and waffles and chicken and fries. I don't usually eat chicken, but these are so spicy and yummy!

Sno-cone truck for dessert. DH and I had an 'adult' - pina colada spiked with rum.

Spaghetti with jarred marinara sauce here. I didn't even bother to doctor it up. Fancy-like.

Using up leftovers day here. Turned corn on the cob and carnitas into a tortilla soup for lunch, and used up a package of fake crab and yesterday's mango salsa in a "ceviche." Tonight I will hopefully salvage a package of sausages (if they're not bad smelling already...it's their last day today) with either kale or onions and peppers (or both) and leftover rice. Bam. Clean fridge.

Love leftovers day - it's like a personal mystery box challenge.

I've got half a jar of marinara sauce in the fridge, so I doctored/stretched it with ground Italian sausage, a bit of white wine and a little water. Serving over spaghetti.

I found a recipe online for coconut lime chicken and have made it twice in 2 weeks. Last night we had guests so I served it with rice, salad and broccoli.

Very lazy here and the fridge is bare so got takeout. Stromboli, salad, and a glass of red. That's pretty much my perfect Sunday dinner.

DH made pizza from Trader Joe's dough. Pretty good. Tomorrow chickpea and potato curry with rice.

Today I also managed to get a pound of pasta cooked up and a quart of spaghetti sauce made for DD's lunches/after-school meals. The sauce was 2 cans of diced tomatoes (blended until smooth) cooked up with a halved, peeled onion and some chopped garlic plus a pat of butter, salt and pepper. Simple, but good.

Ragana, do you mean that you just halve the onion but don't dice it up or anything? Do you remove it after cooking the sauce? That might be a good solution for us, since my DD hates bits of onion in the sauce. Also, I love swirling butter into my tomato sauce at the end!
