Lunch today is courtesy of Trader Joe’s.
This would be one of the items I bought in May and brought back with me since we don’t have one here.
I love the Indian meal packets, but always end up bulking them a little with extra veggies. It just makes it easier to stretch them more, which means I get leftovers for lunch ;)
Of course, I forgot to write down the name/take a picture of the box, but this is the one with chickpeas and a spicy tomato sauce.
While it was heating up in a skillet, I added in a can of drained/rinsed kidney beans and a tablespoon of tomato paste for a bit more richness.
I brought the last of the bean mixture along with some couscous and green/yellow beans.
That little bit of extra tomato paste was a great idea! It gave it a deeper flavor.
Okay, I know everyone has dreams about their perfect house, right?
Maybe yours has a big yard.
Or a closet the size of a bedroom.
Or a kitchen that can hold 50 people at once.
The one thing I’ve wanted in my dream home ever since watching Disney’s Beauty and the Beast?
A library with a rolling ladder.
I want a room to hold all our books, along with a ladder, a fireplace, and big comfy chairs. It also needs to have floor to ceiling windows to let the natural light in and so I can sit and read on stormy days and watch the rain splatter outside while I’m sitting by a roaring fire.
What about you?
What’s in your dream house?
