Monday & Tuesday: I spied two slices of veggie lasagna in the freezer. Salads on the side.
Wednesday: soup & sandwiches at work
Thursday: last in office day, as my company is enforcing WFH until further notice. Spinach artichoke pasta and a salad.
Friday: Sweet potato, black bean, and corn enchiladas at home.
Saturday: veggie burrito
Sunday: OMG in a bowl. A.k.a Pinch of Yum's Spicy Sofritas Tofu. But I didn't have the exact ingredients, and all of a sudden going to the grocery store is kind of a big deal, so as I often do, I made some substitutions. No poblano pepper, no chipotles in adobo sauce...I did have some adobo seasoning that I threw in along with some frozen onions and pepper mix from Trader Joe's and I made sure to hit up the smoked paprika. A full run down of what's in the bowl: the tofu, some air fried sweet potatoes, some leftover cilantro lime rice, and a Trader Joe's guac pack 👍👍👍
Monday (family meal): we started the week without a plan, so hubs stepped up. Costco panko chicken, chicken rice, and mixed veg.
Tuesday (family meal): the men in my life had rotisserie chicken, I made spontaneous fish tacos out of the leftovers from Friday's fish fry and some coleslaw mix.
Wednesday (date night): chicken parm, semi homemade. I baked up the Costco panko chicken in the air fryer, and I could not have made anything better from scratch.
Thursday (fend for yourself night): a fridge cleanout burrito. Rice, refried beans, steak, cheese, salsa, and avocado wrapped in a tortilla and crisped up in the air fryer.
Friday & Saturday (date nights): when the kids are away, the adults will...eat things that adults love and kids hate. Sloppy joes.
Sunday (family meal): grilled chicken, rice, and veg.
Uses of air fryer this week: one billion
Uses of Instant Pot for two weeks running: zero. I mean, we'll keep it but it's about to get moved down to the basement to free up counter space.
Grocery Shopping Report
The parking lot of our Costco was overflowing all week so we held off until last thing on Saturday to stock up and the store was surprisingly empty. Sure things were picked over and there wasn't a single loaf of bread in the store, but if you are in the market for frozen cauliflower crust pizza Costco has your back.
So many movies...
- Andromeda Strain (ha ha inspired by current events)
- Hitchcock remake throw down! The Man Who Knew Too Much 1934 vs 1956. There's a clear winner and it's the 1934 version. It's 75 minutes long and we sat on the edge of our couch for the last 74 minutes of the movie. I couldn't find a trailer so here's the "chair fight" scene to make up for it (sorry not a fan of the 1956 version, IMO if you watch a clip of Doris Day singing Que Sera, Sera and do anything else with the two hours that you would have spent watching the movie you will be better off).
- For family viewing, Jurassic Park, which I had never seen before. Though I have to give a plug for my favorite dinosaur movie:
Still working on The Sweetness at the Bottom of the Pie, still liking it a lot.
