The heat never came!
We’re sittin’ pretty at 83 degrees right now, and the cool breeze plus mild temps (compared to what we’ve been experiencing,) lured me out under the umbrella on my back deck to read all afternoon. 8)
I broke for a lunch of a sliced apple and Blue Diamond Nut-Thins & Sundried Tomato-Basil Goat Cheese when the growl of my stomach was loud enough to take my concentration off of Edward for a moment.
I picked up some of these Smokehouse Almond Nut Thins at the store today, to pair with the goat cheese I got at the Farmer’s Market.
I’ve always been curious about these babies, and they were on sale, so I took it as a sign that I should definitely pick some up.
The nutrition stats are pretty good, but I especially love the ingredient list which only includes: rice flour, almonds, potato starch, safflower oil and seasoning!
I dug out a couple spoonfuls of goat cheese and got my dip on.
Yummmmm, yum, yum, yum!
The tomato basil goat cheese was just excellent. There were chewy pieces of sundried tomatoes in it, and the the basil flavor was juuuust right.
The nut thins were FANTASTIC! They remind me of these Japanese rice crackers, called sembei, that I used to buy from street vendors when I lived in Japan for a summer in college. Ahhh, memories!
Fast forward 3 hours later – insert completing half my chores – and we’ve come to the dinner portion of our show! Grilled Chicken Florentine!
MyBlogSpark sent me a Macaroni Grill Frozen Dinner for 2 to try out and since it involved zero work, besides spilling the contents into a pan and heating, I thought it would be a perfect dinner for this lazy Sunday evening.
The bag contained grilled chicken, spinach and farfelle pasta, with a rich parmesan garlic sauce. Normally I’m not so down with frozen dinners, as the fat and salt content is usually exTREMEly high.
This dinner wasn’t any different, but I was curious to try it, so I took the plunge. It was actually good! Suuuper rich and decadent.
The cheese sauce was thick, and the pasta was cooked just right.
The portion size was also extremely generous. Plenty big for 2!
I probably wouldn’t buy it on my own since I’d rather make meals fresh, but for you frozen food connoisseurs out there, I bed you’d dig this!
In other news, is it seriously Sunday night already?! I feel like I was just leaving work 2 hours ago! Time flies when you’re having fun, I suppose.
Ok, making a verbal commitment to the world so I can’t go back on it. Putting down my book to finish up my chores riiiiiight, now! I. am. a. nerd.
Do you ever suffer from the Sunday night blues?
