Love it

This week has been a bit of an upset around our home.  Between my mom breaking her rib and the rain breaking my spirit-I’m finding myself not being very creative in the kitchen.

In fact, I have to say-I’m glad we had all that food from Mother’s Day, because I didn’t feel like going to the grocery stores.   My daughter-in-law Sam and I went to go visit with my parents and they asked us to pick up a couple of items at Costco for them, so we did. I was so NOT in the mood for that weekend outing.

As you know, I love Costco-but not on the weekends and definitely not at the one by my parents house.  It’s quite a bit larger and neither of us knew that layout.  

Back to the topic-as we were looking for the requested items we passed the bananas.  Let’s face it-bananas are quite a deal at Costco and I reminded myself we had just finished all but 4 apples in the fridge, I grabbed a bunch.

My words to Sam, “Thank goodness, this we’ll keep me from having to go to Henry’s until the end of the week.”

I’m that out of “it” right now.

Thank night I came home feeling achy and not in a good mood.  I knew the rain was near and just put out this for dinner:

Baked tilapia coated in panko/sun-dried tomato (new at Costco)

Then I roasted the remaining veggie platter w/ some garlic, rosemary, s & p and evoo.  I got out some of the asparagus I froze and put it onto the sheet and just gave them a quick spray of evoo and the other herbs as well.  

Made some couscous with chicken stock.  When the veggies came out-I gently tossed them in with the couscous.

The leftovers made hubby’s lunch the next day.

Good thing too-because the bad weather finally hit and I wasn’t in the mood to do more than warm up some soup I had frozen a couple of months back.

This is why even when the weather is supposed to be stable-you still need to keep some easy to defrost one pot meals ready in the freezer.  

Oh-a decent pantry too.

Love it
