Oh man. I spent most of today cleaning out our playroom and ended up with three giant bags of TRASH and an entire trunk full of toys to donate. And I’m not even finished! I still have to tackle the toy box and a random basket of toys/junk under the coffee table. So. Much. Stuff. It’s so gratifying and now I want to do the whole house… which should only take until October or so.
Guess what? We didn’t go out to eat once this week! Given our track record lately, that’s pretty noteworthy. Tonight I made my favorite Skinnytaste turkey taco soup. It was pretty chilly and gross out so soup was a good call. This time I used the Ro-tel that has cilantro and lime, and I also squeezed the juice of one lime into the soup. It was goooood. We had it topped with green onions and Greek yogurt (instead of sour cream), but my phone was upstairs charging so I didn’t get a pic.
Last night was book club, and then on Tuesday I just winged a quick chicken stir fry using all of this:
I marinated diced chicken breasts in Trader Joe’s Island Soyaki for about an hour or so, then threw it in the wok. Once the chicken was cooked through, I removed it from the pan and added a tub of TJ’s stir-fry veggies and a bag of fresh mushrooms. Cooked those for a few minutes, then threw in a can of sliced water chestnuts, a can of bamboo shoots, some garlic and ginger, about 1/4 cup of TJ’s stir fry sauce, a little soyaki and some soy sauce.
Served over cauliflower fried rice and topped with Sriracha. Oh! And also the new TJ’s umami mushroom seasoning… I’m a fan:
Not fancy but really good! And it made a ton, so that’s been my lunch this week too.
Hope everyone has a fun weekend! We’re planning to celebrate Brian’s birthday tomorrow night, since he spent his actual b-day driving 16 hours from SC to TX. Then it’s basketball games and hopefully finally taking down Christmas!
