Tonight was definitely one of those nights where a fresh dinner did not need to be prepared. Our fridge has been jam packed with an ever growing supply of leftovers as of late…
So rather than add to the leftover pile up, Jay and I decided to incorporate some of what we already had for tonight’s dinner. While hubby took care of finishing up the rest of the chicken, I went to to town on the quinoa and my veggie drawer.
I first sautéed up some broccoli, tomatoes, carrots, and scallions in a bit of EVOO, dried basil, salt & black pepper.
While the veggies were cooking up, I reheated ~1 cup of quinoa mixed with 2 tbsp goat cheese and ~1-1/2 tbsp Ken’s Northern Italian dressing in the microwave. Once that was cooked through, I tossed it all together, and topped it off with some slivered almonds.
It was full of flavor, and I loved the creamy, cheesy texture of everything too. Quick, easy, delicious = my kinda meal!
I debated on toasting up some bread on the side, but decided to save a little extra room for a delicious dessert tonight.
I knew I should have ignored the sale price, but I just couldn’t…
I picked up a carton of this Breyers Smooth & Dreamy Fat-Free Creamy Vanilla ice cream at the store this weekend and have been waiting to dig in ever since. I actually try not to buy ice cream too often for the house…especially when the weather is warmer and I constantly crave soft serve…but I caved and got it anyway. I’m a sucker for a good bargain.
I made myself a small bowl, topped with a little bit of caramel syrup (<—best ice cream topping ever) and a few Almond Oat Goji Berry Cookies.
Now let’s just hope I can keep myself from going back for a second bowl…

Question for the Evening:
Do you buy ice cream to have at home? If so…what kinds? And what kinds of toppings do you like?
