Is anyone else feeling a little mixed up this week? Between getting home Monday and having friends up for the weekend starting tomorrow, my meal planning was incredibly thrown off… meaning I just didn’t do it. Instead, I went shopping sans list to pick up some basics. This is what my haul looks like when that happens:
Apparently my basics include Clamato juice? Apparently. Bloody Marys anyone?!
Whenever I have to shop without a list I resort to very basic, clean eats. I can’t figure out ingredients to chia pancakes or vegetable risotto on the fly, so I grab the basics to get me through. Here’s what a day of simple eats ends up looking like…
Does it get much more simple than whole wheat toast, an egg and a banana? I think not. And as for cooking my egg over medium? Nailed it.
Lunch was the simplest of classic salad ingredients. Romaine, grape tomatoes, cucumber, onion, carrot and feta cheese with a homemade dressing consisting of not much more than oil, dijon and vinegar.
Rainy days call for soup and I always really enjoy Pacific’s boxed soups. So easy; so good.
Hailey likes them, too.
My afternoon snack simply consisted of crackers, cucumbers and hummus.
You may consider it a light snack unless you saw that I ate half the tub. Darn you Sabra for always sucking me in!
A stormy afternoon lent itself to simple activities. Like playdough and letters.
And a new Stitch Fix arrival to play dress up with.
After a phone call from David letting me know he’d be working super late and putting Hailey to bed, I scrounged around to find the makings for a simple meal for one.
I found a frozen piece of tilapia, some veggies that needed to be used up yesterday and a new pasta hiding in the pantry.
This was just OK; I prefer the quinoa pasta.
It only took 20 minutes to create a simple, summery dinner for one.
Zucchini, onion and tomato sauteed in a white wine and garlic sauce atop spaghetti style pasta with braised tilapia. All topped off with fresh basil.
I actually surprised myself with how tasty this was. I’ll be making it again.
