Trader Joe’s Artichoke Antipasto


Breakfast


Lunch: Hot Dog & Broccoli


Dinner: Ginger Pork, Broccoli, Sesame Salad
This ginger pork has been prepared and frozen in a container. To finish the dish, I just put in microwave for 5-6 minutes.


I love this Trader Joe’s Artichoke Antipasto. It was good on greens as salad topping/seasoning. I think it would work to season pasta too. Tonight I simply put on bread. It was perfect with red wine 🙂

Carbonara & Artichoke Salad


Dinner: Carbonara, Artichoke Salad + Underwood Pinot Noir


Artichoke Antipasto on Romaine Lettuce was just delicious without any additional dressing or seasoning 🙂 My carbonara was as good as usual.

Tennis & Doughnut


Spontaneously playing tennis with my husband


He usually practice with his tennis buddies on Thursdays, but asked me to play with him. Ok…why not!


Make-Ahead dinner after tennis @ 6:40pm: Cucumber & Shrimp Ponzu, Tofu Gyoza, Spicy Pork & Bean Sprouts, Broccoli, Grape Tomatoes + Lemon Water

I was going to have Shochu, but simply wanted water instead after playing tennis. Exercise is good!

However, we both started craving for doughnuts. Oh-uh! Usually one of us stops but today we just drove to Ralphs to pick up some…


Expected they would sell Krispy Kreme but not available there.


This is denser and more like old fashion. It’s something different from one we wanted 😦
