I crossed off all of my to-do’s (I still have to clean the stove but I know that it’ll get done before bed) and I even made a quick run out to Wegmans and Target; bam! Very accomplished feeling although there were some unintended results…
My trip to the store pushed dinner back later, which resulted in a grumbly tummy, which resulted in an impulse buy, which resulted in me eating 2 servings of Lays Honey Mustard Chips before dinner.
I actually picked up this same bag the other day and then put it back but when I was at the store again with “free” money (we get $ for recycling our cans/bottles) I just couldn’t resist. Sadly they were oddly spicy and not as good as I was imagining.
The chips did give me the ability to make dinner without a distracted stomach, and I ended up making an amazing meal.
That, my friends, is a heaping bowl of pasta.
This quick and easy dish was randomly chosen but everything ended up coming together perfectly. For 4 servings, served on top of rigatoni, I combined –
- 1 Tbsp evoo for sauteing
- 4 cloves garlic, chopped
- 1 small Mayan onion, chopped
- 1 package Gimme Lean Ground Sausage Style
- 1 jar Newman’s Own Cabernet Marinara <– a free sample from Foodbuzz a while back
- 4 small zucchini, sliced and roasted at 400* for 25 minutes
Healthy, filling, and vegan to boot!
