So Trader Joe's has some goodness in the aisles. I'll make it my job to share some compilation dinners from TJs.
This Monday night we had a fun one. There was no school, so right about 1:00 when relaxin' and practicin' and chores were done, my Dear asked the kids if they wanted to go bowling. I added, bring a jacket and off we went (surprise!) to Disney's California Adventure for 5 quick rides. (Yes, we invested in passes. Yes, no one was there, but another family from our school. Yes it was fun.)
At the end of the trip, my youngest was begging for a hot dog but I don't really wish to give the mouse empire all of my money, so we headed home for a simple bowl of Trader Joe's Chicken Chili.
Heat it up.
We serve it over the TJ's organic corn chips with a little dollop of organic sour cream and about a teaspoon of (hand) shredded Cheddar. Not a tremendously balanced meal, but just enough - this bowl full of fun.
- For tex mex taco salad - make your taco salad and pour warm chili on top
- For chili soup - add chicken stock, additional chicken meat and top with scallions
- Some like chili mac with noodles
How about you?
What's a super-quick meal at your house?
