I'm liking the whole grocery shopping during the week a whole lot, it's so nice not having to cram it during the weekend. I don't think I planned very well, though so I was like a scavenger in my own kitchen last night.
I was all out salad stuff and I didn't want to have to buy anything for lunch tomorrow, so I looked around, found the unlikeliest of ingredients and rolled them up into wrap. Without further adieu, I present, the green giant wrap:
It's hard to believe it tasted so good, but the flavors really complimented each other. Plus, I got to use some of the cabbage that's been sitting in my fridge for more than a week. I hate buying cabbage because as hard as I try to find the smallest one, I never use it fast enough.
- Spinach tortilla wrap
- 1 serving turkey pastrami
- 3/4 cabbage
- 1/4 avocado
I forgot to post these last week, my friend at work got them for my little one.
Aren't they the cutest??? Brielle really likes those 2 am parties, let me tell ya!
The prep work last night was oh so wonderful because by the time I got home, dinner was almost done. Compliments of ol'faithuful:
This things been chugging along probably for 25+ years. Richard's Mom used to make dinners for them in this same pot when they were little. Do they know how to make Crock Pots or what?
It lucked yummy, but when I tasted it the wild rice seemed to be a little crunchy so I had to set it on high. Look at that bubble action! Go Crock Pot Go!
After another hour and a half dinner was served!
I originally wanted a creamy, frothy type soup like the one we had at the International Bakery. I added way too many veggies for that, but I'm not complaining. Richard even volunteered that it was "pretty good" without me having to ask him. I say, the Crock Pot gets a gold star!
Here are the ingredients:
- 4 chicken thighs
- 3/4 cup wild rice
- 1 onion chopped
- 2/3 cup celery, chopped
- 1 carrot
- 1 cup shredded cabbage
- 1 large potato, cubed
- 1 can cream of mushroom soup
- 1/2 cup of half-n-half
- 1 1/2 c milk
Many Blessings, I'm off to sleepy-land!!!!
