This month my kitchen has had many old standbys prepared for dinner but we did manage to try some new items from trader Joe's store. Some were great and some weren't.
The salmon and sprouts were a success and absolutely delicious. Doug grilled both and it was an excellent meal.
Orange Chicken is a customer favorite at Trader Joe's and it's certainly one we will purchase again. I added a bag of stir fry veggies to the chicken as it cooked and it was better than the take-away we usually buy for a Friday evening. Thanks to my friend Stacey in Texas for telling me about this Orange chicken. We also made pot stickers and it was a perfect meal.
Below: These were the non-winners in the kitchen this month. The Creamy Pink Primavera pasta sauce was listed as a T.J. customer favorite so we gave it a try. Oh, it was so bad. I mean the kind where you are about to scrape your tongue it was such a bad taste. I should add, this is our opinion and taste buds. :-) Obviously for it to be a fan favorite someone loves it. We resorted to opening a jarred pasta sauce that's in the emergency supplies to put on the remaining angel hair pasta after binning the original meal.
The Crunch Rolls used to be good but this batch was dry. Probably I am done buying them.
Hummus! I love hummus. Here is a sandwich I made with a tomato basil hummus spread. Lettuce and tomato on toasted bread. Easy lunch to take to work.
I'll share this sandwich with Deb for Souper Sundays.
