Make-Ahead, Pizza & Wine

There is still a lot of make-ahead meals in the fridge. Since I have them for lunch as well, I want something else for dinner. At the same time I can’t waste it.

Trader Joe’s BBQ Chicken Pizza


Breakfast: Apple, Two kinds of pound cake + coffee

Make-Ahead Dinner & Ramen

After 3 days, I am already tired of eating make-ahead meals. Of course, fresh meals tastes better! Less headache to think about what to cook and less time to prepare lunch & dinner during the week tho.

He feels like wine, so we opened a bottle of Argentina Malbec. It’s fruity and a bit sweet. Easy to drink. I love it.

Make-Ahead Dinner
It still tastes good, but not fun to eat 😦

I added instant Tonkotsu Style ramen (shared one serving by two). A warm broth gives us more satisfaction.

I enjoyed the make-ahead lunch.

Delicious Grilled Onion & Jalapeño

Although a lot of make-ahead meals are stocked in the fridge, we went to Super Gallito for tacos after Spanish class. Learning Spanish makes us crave for Mexican food 😛

We’ve seen people request whole grilled onions and been curious about them. Finally we asked for it tonight.

Taco de Pescado $3, Taco de Carnitas $1.50

Grilled onion and jalapeno tastes amazing!
