food trends

Sometimes, the simplest suppers are the best.

This is what I made last night:

I cooked three handfulls of whole-wheat penne in salted water until they were done. I tossed the hot pasta with a can of no-salt added, diced tomatoes, (drained,) a can of quartered artichoke hearts, (drained,) two handfulls of leftover cooked chickpeas, and a couple of teaspoons of Earth Balance. YUM. (Oh, and I had diced mango drizzled with a little melted semi-sweet chocolate for dessert. Double yum.)

The dish even held up beautifully in leftover form for lunch today. Mmmmm.......

I've been into pasta lately. Well, I guess I'm always into pasta. It's one of my favorite foods.

Dinner tonight was veggie chili and cornbread and blueberry-apple crumble at our staff meeting. And then I came home and ate a bowl of cereal and the rest of the mango (sans chocolate this time.) Lately, I seem to be a bottomless pit.

And I've been WAY into sunbutter and banana sandwiches for breakfast. But I've run out of bananas (and bread,) so I'll have to figure out something new for tomorrow.

Segue . . .

I am so glad tomorrow is Friday, (and payday!), and we have only one more week until SPRING BREAK!!!!

Hi Catherine... we love artichokes in pasta sauce - SO good... that dessert sound divine too! I love the ataulfo mangoes the best - not as stringy and so sweet!

I don't know which variety of mangoes my coop stocks, but I haven't had a stringy one yet, and they stand alone as a great dessert! Mangoes are one of my new favorite things to eat.
