I went to Fresh Market and Trader Joe’s this week for groceriies. Between the two stores I spent $84! That’s huge considering how expensive everything is at The Fresh Market. I ended up getting my tilapia, shrimp, and as a treat 10 stuffed escargot shells for Tony. They have the escargot and herb butter mixture all in each shell and I end up baking them in my mini muffin tin. He loves them!
When I got home, as I was putting away my groceries I remembered I never tried the kale I bought last week, so I ended up trying kale chips. I had about 2 cups of chopped kale, drizzled about 1/2 teaspoon olive oil and mixed that around. The sprinkled parmesan cheese and grey sea salt and cooked them for about 15 minutes in a 375 oven. The result? Not much flavor at all. First I expected bitterness, maybe I overcooked them because they were very fragile. I tried dipping them in jalapeno mustard but it wasn’t coming together. I probably ate about half of what I made.
My sammie, however, was delicious!
- 1 ounce corned beef
- 1/2 ounce swiss cheese
- 1 slice Trader Joe’s 10 grain bread
- .5 ounce sauerkraut
- 1 teaspoon thousand island dressing
Then by the Fresh Market is a DSW, and they have a huge clearance room. I was able to get a new pair of gym shoes for only $25 with tax! They are Saucony brand.
Menu for the Week:
- turkey tetrazzini
- grilled tilapia tacos with refried beans and Mexican rice
- white chicken chili over baked potatos
- shrimp scampi over thin spaghetti with garden salad
- tofu stir fry for me and Hannah and beef and broccoli stir fry for Tony
See you at dinner!
