O, East Coast, you are just ADORABLE!!!
As my bio for the The 365 Dinner Project blog says, I look at cooking as a chemistry experiment. And this one was a spectacular fail.
Every third Friday — except for Lent, when it’s every Friday – one of our local fraternal organizations has a fish fry. And it’s pretty decent. So it’s become a bit of a tradition for me and a friend who buys for both of us. The salads – which consist of iceberg lettuce and some veggies – and desserts, however leave a lot to be desired.
After a brief happy hour with friends, it was straight to pick up fish, go home and get to bed. It was a very exciting day. And, yes, I’m just going to leave you hanging.
So today’s dinner was made with a bag of frozen turkey meatballs from the cooperative buying program I participate in. Two to three more bags are still in the freezer.
Slathered meatballs with BBQ sauce and stuck them in the over. Made frozen green beans in the microwave. I’ll probably have the rest for lunch tomorrow.
An interesting sidenote. I saw on the package that the meatball manufacturer — Simek’s out of Minnesota — donates 10% of their profits to “organizations that serve those in need“. So my purchase (using my EBT) actually helps others, too! #winning
No fuss. Open a couple of trays of spanakopita from Costco. Bake. Save some for lunch tomorrow. Done.
Just hummus. Culinary Circle Traditional Mediterranean Hummus. A containerful. From the local food shelf, probably donated by an area Cub Foods, I think.
That’s right. Nothing else.
Wasn’t thrilled about the canola oil in it…but beggars can’t be choosers.
And did I mention it was hummus?!?
