Spaghetti Dinner

My boyfriend's mother graciously sent us plenty of boxes of gluten free 
pasta so I've been cooking up spaghetti dinners for the past few nights 

Boiling the pasta

Chopping red bell pepper and broccoli with my six bean can of beans 

Blanching the veggies in the pasta water

Cooking the beef along with red onion and a 
few pepper pieces that found their way inside ;)

Adding Prego Original tomato sauce to finish

The finished plated product with the added beans

His and Her plates. My man opted for no beans and more meat ;)

Question: Do you like to add different ingredients 
to your pasta (ie. beans, avocado, seeds, citrus)?

Deli Chicken Salad Sandwich

Lunch break after hours spent house cleaning and working up an appetite

Safeway Deli's Chicken Salad Salad

Creamy and delightful

I only splurge and buy some the odd time. A small container costs six dollars!

I toasted some gluten free bread and layered 
on kale and a heaping spoonful of chicken salad

Such a balanced and filling meal

Questions: Do you ever buy foods from the deli? 
Do you treat yourself to expensive items occasionally?

Stir Fry and Apple Crumble

When it's me and my man cooking, dessert always follows dinner

We started with an Asian Stir Fry

We cooked the vegetables in Sweet and Sour 
Sauce with Chicken on a bed of Jasmine Rice

We both ate a couple bowls each, fighting over who gets the most veggies

Then came dessert, Homemade Apple Crumble

It's the easiest thing to make. You just slice an apple and stick it in a 
baking dish, and throw it in the oven at 350 Fahrenheit for 10-15 minutes

Then add a crumble of oats, brown sugar, a little margarine
 and cinnamon, placing back in the oven for 15-20 minutes

Serves 2 hungry people
