Monday Eats

by Meghann on January 21, 2013

Looks like it’s going to be another week of snack plate lunches. I love the random creations – no two plates are ever the same!

Today’s plate was almond-butter themed.

And a random leftover buffalo chicken tender.

It caught my attention when I was digging in the fridge. It didn’t really go with the theme of the plate, but it was still tasty. ;)

Popcorn was BOGO at Publix this week. I can never pass up a mini bag of kettle corn, especially with some peanuts thrown on top.

Dinner tonight was a Publix Apron’s meal: Hearty Meatball Soup with Spinach.

I liked the recipe because it was easy and I didn’t have to buy any special ingredients to make it at home. All I needed was meat, veggies, and broth. After that I was good to go.

Unfortunately I discovered mini meatballs are not my forte.

Eh. Oh well. At least they don’t have to look good to taste good.

30 minutes later…

Dinner time!

The soup was fantastic. I loved the mini meatballs (or at least my attempt at the mini meatballs) as well as the extra splash of veggies. It was a great bowl of comfort soup.

Somehow I talked Derek into watching New Year’s Eve – love that movie. Maybe tomorrow I can talk him into watching Valentine’s Day? ;)

Good Night!

Meatballs in the pan always makes them look like triangles or worse shapes. Simplest way to get good looking meatballs: bake in the oven ;-)

I am sure it still tasted good..

Buffalo chicken tender looked the best to me. :) Never thought of peanuts and popcorn together.

I can’t seem to figure out how people make meatballs. They’re super complicated!

I love anything meatball! My favorite meatballs are ones with zucchini and carrots mixed in- it makes them a lot healthier :)

Your dinner looks delicious! And I need to get some popcorn again, I’d always pop it in my own brown bags in the microwave – so good!
