Hi gang! Tonight’s dinner was cool and refreshing. The only “warm” part of it was the veggies!
Basic frozen broccoli and carrots that I quick hit with some hot water to take the chill off. Then in a pot I heated up a small amount of olive oil and quick sauteed some red pepper flakes. Added in the veggies, some grated garlic, S&P, and some Italian seasoning and let it cook for about two minutes. Then I tossed in some grated parm and had a simple and quick side dish.
Also had some tuna salad which was super simple as well. Tuna, shredded carrot, almost a TBSP of olive oil mayo, spicy mustard, and horseradish. The seasonings were S&P and curry powder. A few sunflower and pumpkin seeds for extra crunch and texture.
My whole plate! I ate the tuna salad with some Dr. Kracker’s flatbread which I only ate 1.5 pieces of and didn’t even finish that huge scoop of salad. I didn’t finish my veggies either. I was starving so we ate slightly earlier but once I started eating, I filled up really fast. Scott had leftover steak and I had a few nibbles of that as well. Easy dinner night! It wasn’t until I was eating that I realized I was on seed overload today. :p I had seeds in my salad, seeds in the tuna salad, and then seeds with the flatbread. I should be squeaky clean by tomorrow!
Totally glad the week is close to being over! A few more things to get done before SF class this evening and then my goal is to be in bed early. Hopefully that will happen!

Dinner sounds just right for May. I think I’m going to do what your pouch is, that’s just right too!
I am happy to see someone else eats frozen veggies from time to time. I love ’em!
Sarah, I love frozen fruit! Especially for pineapple which can be really expensive fresh.
