a quick dinner - sausage and cheese biscuits and fruit

 I feel like we need to add an extra day to the weekend every week, a day that I could use to meal plan and cook.  I would love that!  I haven't planned meals in ages, preferring to live on the edge and just figure out what to have at the last minute.  It's just as enjoyable as it sounds.

This particular day I had thawed a pound of ground pork and was searching thru the pantry for something to add to it when I spotted the bisquick mix, et voila!

Warm biscuits with some melty cheese and a herby-garlicky sausage patty.  Fruit on the side. Comforting and delicious.

a delicious dinner from Masala Fusion Meats


We finally got over to the North Shore to visit Masala Fusion Meats and it was as great as I'd hoped.  We picked up 3 kinds of chicken - Tandoori, Pudina Mint and Malai.  The very lovely staff assured us that the Mint and Malai were not spicy, but the Tandoori would have a kick.  We also picked up 2 butter chicken samosas for The Mister and I for a treat.

We grilled the chicken up for Sunday Dinner with The Grandpa, along with some veggies, a mint yogurt sauce, a tomato salad and some mini naans.

It was all AMAZING, although the Mint was a bit kicky, the Malai was just flavorful, and the Tandoori was just spicy enough to make you reach for your water glass.

I thought, in my humble opinion, that the 2 sauces went extremely well with all the flavors, and the naan and anything else you wanted to serve it with.  The tomato salad - Kachumbar -  from Made in India by Meera Sodha, and the mint yogurt sauce will become staples in my kitchen.

broccoli cheddar soup with shells

 I was so sure the Girl was going to go crazy for this soup - she loves broccoli, LOVES mac and cheese, so why wouldn't she love a broccoli mac and cheese soup? Ha.

The good thing was the other 3 of us were indeed crazy about it and the leftovers did not last long at all.

30 day challenge - March - Ted Talks

 I am still continuing my journaling and my sad sad attempts at drinking more water.  

I am not really great at either, but we must keep trying.    

Next up is a month of Ted Talks!  

I am excited about this one and I plan to try to choose a wide variety of topics. 

Here's to the start of a new month and new adventures and new growth.
