Some days, I sit down with every intention of blogging and realize: I got nothin’.
Other days, I have so many things to write about and it’s hard to narrow it down to one topic.
Today, I spent the whole day in the kitchen, cooking my little heart out.
So, I could write about meal planning, and how helpful and cost-effective it can be during the workweek when you plan out your family meals ahead of time.
Then, I could tell you about the bangin’ chana masala I made (from a recipe I found with a little help from @Blacktating). I added coconut milk and extra tomato to the recipe, and it came out great! I’ll pair it with a fragrant basmati rice for lunches this week so I don’t have to leave the office. (Funny, even with all the spices, my toddler loved this recipe too!)
Or, I could tell you about the chicken I roasted with parsnips, carrots and potatoes, and how we’ll be able to use the leftovers tomorrow night on sandwiches. Whole wheat rolls, roasted chicken, baby spinach and Robert Rothschild Roasted Garlic, Onion and Fig Spread. Nom! So much
But I think I’ll skip those things. Tonight I’m keeping it simple (I know you probably have football to watch.) No profound thoughts, no big revelations. Just one great product that I am excited to have found.
You see, I’ve been SO frustrated lately because I don’t buy food in cans anymore, and I just can’t find tomatoes in any other packaging! I’ve searched and searched, to no avail, and I get annoyed every single time I shop. I can’t be the only one looking!
What’s a mama gotta do to find safe tomatoes??!!
Enter: Bionaturae Organic Strained Tomatoes in a glass bottle. Sure, I might prefer a pouch or carton, but I’ll definitely take this over a can.
AND they were good! AND they only cost a few cents more than the ones in the yucky can! Thank you, Bionaturae!
That’s it. Just good tomatoes, and the fact that I’m thrilled to have found them.
Now go watch the game!
Do you buy food in cans? Do you have any good alternatives to share?
