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
