Okay...moving on and getting over my pity party and sharing in the positives...I've deleted every Zulilly and Jack Threads email without even opening them...that's great! I've spent $100 on our groceries this week and that's it....that's AWESOME! I've used up a couple of boxes of stock, a few potatoes, some chicken, eggs and sausages and last night I used up the lentils and tomato paste that have been sitting in my pantry for a.very.long.time....that's awesome great! So if you don't count the nice bill from the break man, I'm doing pretty good I think.
So here was dinner on night eight of this challenging challenge! With a lot of fog for us this year, our nights are damp and cool so I thought this Rosemary-Scented Lentils and Sausage dish looked like it would warm us up perfectly!
Once again this delish dish comes from myrecipes.com and was new for us try. With this challenge we'll be trying a lot of new things due to the oddities in the pantry, so I'm having fun discovering new tastes!
For me during these 30 days I'm also challenging myself to be less wasteful. This can of tomato paste that I only used one tablespoon out of I would normally just toss it and move on. Well I'm saving the remainder and will use it somewhere in the next week. :)
Ahh the finished dish of course served up with a spinach salad only this time I toasted some pine nuts (that were once lost in my pantry) to sprinkle on the top. Our little miss had never had these buttery tasty nuts and she wanted more mommy, more mommy now!
And you ask if it was good....It was awesome good! Thumbs up good! The toddler ate it all up good! And the best part??? The recipe made enough for another meal in the future! I've packed it up and put it in the freezer to pull out for another foggy day.
