This is a busy week for us- Arboretum Monday, then school Tues/Thurs and MOPs Friday- so today I decided that we would just lay low and hang out at home… which always sounds like a good idea until Jack’s been awake for an hour and the house looks like a bomb went off. Luckily my mom came to the rescue and invited us to meet her for lunch. We were pulling out of the driveway when I saw a random cat dart across our driveway.
Me: “Jack, look at that cat!”
Jack: “It’s not a cat, Mommy. It’s a jaguar.”
What?? I have no idea where he gets this stuff. And for the record, it was not a jaguar. We do have coyotes; if I see a jaguar, the house goes on the market immediately.
For dinner tonight I finally put this to use:
Trader Joe’s Masala Simmer Sauce. I actually cooked the chicken ahead of time in the crock pot (so I could pull some out for Jack’s dinner- the sauce was too spicy for him). Then I tossed the shredded chicken in a saute pan with the simmer sauce, a handful of frozen peas and some chickpeas. The pan seemed a little dry once I added all of that extra “stuff” so I also poured in about 1/2 cup of light coconut milk.
Served over cauliflower rice:
I’m itching for another TJ’s trip soon. I hear they have pumpkin butter now!!! Maybe this weekend?
