Today was a very fun day in our neck of the woods. Thanks to a federal holiday, hubs had the day off. So, we spent much of it out in the sunshine. We have beautiful temps these days, in the 70s and 80s.
We spent most of the day at the park, playing disc golf, basketball, and scootering. So fun! We cruised by Trader Joe’s for drinks and were inspired by this chopped salad they served as a “sample.” I broke down and used some “blow money” on the ingredients to add to tonight’s dinner.
Here’s what I served my family today
Breakfast – Donuts
No, we don’t do this every week, but when hubs is home, we tend to splurge and opt for fun food. He went and got donuts for the kids, spending $7 of our eating out money. (If it matters, I ate a turkey sandwich for breakfast.)
Lunch – Taco Bell
There was nothing in the house to pack for a picnic, so we made a run for the border. We spent $14.
Dinner – Baked Chicken, Quinoa Pilaf, Chopped Salad, Sourdough Bread
I had both chicken breasts and legs thawing in the fridge. I used Jamie’s spice mix to season the chicken. I also made a quinoa pilaf with garlic, chicken broth, lemon zest, and thyme. The chopped salad had broccoli, carrots, cabbage, jicama, bell pepper, celery, radish, and a cilantro dressing. I found the loaf of bread on clearance at Ralph’s
